Northern Lights Winter Trek

Sign up

Registration fee


Minimum sponsorship



Trek through Iceland, traversing a striking mix of geothermal valleys and beautiful mountain scenery, streams and waterfalls, and witness the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

Iceland lies on the edge of the Arctic Circle and is home to some of Europe’s greatest wild landscapes. A land of incredible contrast and natural beauty, its wild volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and waterfalls, combined with its rich history, literature and folklore make it a fascinating country to explore.

There will be snow underfoot so it’s challenging walking, but no technical expertise required as you take advantage of seeing this beautiful region in winter.

Staying in huts miles from the nearest big towns, the dark skies offer a great chance of seeing the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and we watch each evening – the icing on the cake on this memorable challenge!
