Iceland is a land of contrast- our Fire and Ice challenge showcases the best of this incredible wilderness with glaciers, volcanoes, sweeping valleys, raging rivers, lava fields and the new 2021 eruption site (up close!)

You’ll complete 3 days of challenging wild trekking with nights spent under canvass, before a last night hotel and celebration in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik.


The varied Icelandic wilderness provides a stunning backdrop for our 3 days trekking challenge. After a tough day facing the Icelandic elements we can relax in our private campsites and look forward to a hearty meal as we enjoy the near constant daylight of an arctic summer. 

5 Day adventure UK to UK

We fly from London to Keflavik before transferring across the Icelandic wilderness to our first camp. 3 nights camping and three tough days trekking before a Reykjavik hotel night and a bit of a celebration!

3 Days Trekking

We’ll trek a total of 53km over rugged and varied terrain during the 3 days walking (24km, 14km and 15km each day) and get to see the best that Iceland has to offer in terms of landscapes and natural wonders!

Full Support

Your Action Challenge leader and UK medic will be with you every step of the way, as well as our team of in-country local guides and assistants. We’re all there to support and reassure you throughout the challenge

Evening in Reykjavik, visit eruption site

The evening of Day 4 takes us to the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik, where a celebration meal and a comfortable hotel bed awaits us. On the last day we also get the chance to visit the new, March 2021, eruption site!

For you, your team or for charity

The challenge is fine for all keen walkers, whether experienced or not – and you can join as an individual and meet up with others, or as a team of friends or work colleagues and make it a group adventure to remember. You can self fund – just like a holiday – or support a charity of your choice. There’s a ‘land only’ option if you want to organise your flight or maybe to stay in Iceland for extra days


Action Challenge offer first class support and safety, with our AC mountain leader and UK medic with you every step of the way. We’re also supported by our friendly, experienced and knowledgeable local staff that know the Icelandic wilderness like the back of their hand.

Whether you’re a seasoned international adventurer, or are just a keen walker looking for their first international challenge, you can join as an individual, with a friend, or as a group, and take on the Iceland Fire and Ice Challenge with us. It’s a great value ‘all inclusive’ package- an unforgettable Icelandic adventure!
