Take on the Icelandic Lava Trek

When: Various dates 2019

Where: Iceland

The route

Challenge yourself on this amazing 58 km trek through Iceland's Southern Highlands. Crossing the phenomenal Landmannalaugar, the route is through one of the most actively volcanic and alien landscapes in Iceland, providing awe-inspiring views at every step. You'll weave through vast steaming lava fields, walk against the backdrop of multi-coloured rocks and camp in some of Europe’s most spectacular and unusual terrain on this 5 day adventure. 

The duration may be short, but the days are long and the terrain is very challenging, with steep climbs and rough descents. In addition, you’ll also be in charge of setting up and breaking down camp, making this a truly tough challenge. But don’t fear - on completing your challenge you have the chance rest aching limbs in the famous Blue Lagoon.
