Iceland Trek: Shelter July 2017

It’s been over a month since I completed the Laugavegur Trek , 55km from Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk and I have just been sent the official Skyline video of the journey (see below) and watching it took me straight back into the mountains.

I met some great people, all trekking for charities as diverse as Age UK to Whale Conservation, and some in memory of special people.

We camped for 3 nights and whilst it never went dark, it did get cold at night . By the time we got to the hotel in Reykjavík, both me and my tent mate Rob were very pleased to have showers for the first time in 3 days. Thoroughly recommend Iceland and this trek in particular.  After the trek I had a couple of extra days in Reykjavík and went to the Blue Lagoon and on a tour of geysers and the very loud Gullfoss waterfall.

By the end of the whole week I had walked over 100 km, and once again I would like to thank all my sponsors. I raised £2,405.30 for Shelter, plus another £452.08 in gift aid.

Thank you, Mark Hillary.
