Support Action Cancer on this 7 day challenge through Iceland, a land where volcanoes and mountains tower over us and where hot springs bubble beneath our feet. For five days we hike across lava and snow fields while resting to swim in the Alftavatn volcanic lake and wading in the hot spring of Storihver. Views across Hrafntinnusker accompany us as we hike through the stunning Thorsmork valley that is surrounded by giant glaciers. At the end of our trip we have the chance to explore Reykjavik, famous for its mineral-rich Blue Lagoon.

This challenge will be undertaken on behalf of Action Cancer, a leading, local cancer charity based in Ireland. Their mission is to save lives and support local people affected by cancer through detection, support, prevention and awareness, and this year they will provide early detection, support and prevention services to over 50,000 people, including breast screening for 10,000 women. Help them continue their valuable work by signing up for this challenge!
