Trek the stunning wilderness of Iceland, all whilst beating cancer sooner.
Host to some of Europe’s most incredible wilderness, this Icelandic itinerary takes in thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords and spouting geysers. The trip is relatively short, but days are long and the terrain is challenging. Your hard work will be rewarded with an indulgent visit to Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon and the knowledge of funding life-saving research into Cancer.
The trip departs on Saturday 18th August and returns on Wednesday 22nd August - perfect for fitting around other commitments.
We ask that you pledge to raise £3,430. All you pay is the registration fee of £395 - you can even split this into 2 installments to make it easier to pay.
If you wish to reduce your fundraising target, you can become a 'flexi-funder' whereby you pay an extra £500 upon registration to bring your fundraising target down to £2,430.
In order to guarantee your place on the trek we ask that you return 80% of your fundraising 10 weeks prior to the event. But, please don’t worry, we’ve got loads of fundraising tips and support to help you achieve this.
Our mission is to ensure that 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034, but we need you to join the fight today. So register now and we will beat cancer.
This trek will be delivered by Charity Challenge, who have enabled people to raise £50million taken over 20,000 people on amazing adventures since 1999. For more information on Charity Challenge, and their ethical travel policies, visit their website.
