Ultra Adventures 939x197 New With Phone Compressed

Iceland Challenge

27-30 August 2017

The famous Laugavegurinn Trail in Southern Iceland provides a unique and dramatic backdrop for this special Challenge - a short & sharp 4 day adventure with 2 days of marathon distance trekking. It's a volcanic wilderness - with some tough hills, river crossings, snow & ice, and camping under the midnight sun. Just like our UK Ultra Challenges you'll be fully supported with great hospitality & first class logistics. 300 adventurers took on this challenge in 2016 with us - it was fantastic - join us in 2017!
