Iceland Ultra Challenge

Join us

Join us for this stunning Ultra Adventure through Iceland’s most beautiful landscape

Registration Fee: £200

Minimum sponsorship: £1,950 (including flights) or £1,350 (excluding flights)

Join 150 adventurers to take on this unique Ultra Challenge for an experience you won’t forget. Trekking two marathons in two days, you’ll follow the famous Laugavegurinn Trail, covering varied terrain and camping under the midnight sun.

You'll encounter mountains of every colour, spectacular glaciers, roaring hot springs, and river crossings to navigate that will test both your stamina and adaptability. This is a tough trek but you’ll be fully supported by the team with a pre-challenge briefing, a spring training walk, and outstanding hospitality throughout the trip. Push yourself - and join us to help raise money for people affected by cancer.

For full information on the challenge, its inclusions, the route, FAQ’s and much more – please visit the Iceland Challenge website.
