Northern Lights Winter Trek

Join #TeamRefuge for the Northern Lights Winter Trek, a fantastic trekking challenge through stunning scenery in southern Iceland. Trek through a striking mix of geothermal valleys and beautiful mountain scenery, streams and waterfalls.

Iceland lies on the edge of the Arctic Circle and is home to some of Europe’s greatest wild landscapes. A land of incredible contrast and natural beauty, its wild volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and waterfalls, combined with its rich history, literature and folklore, make it a fascinating country to explore.

Staying in huts miles from the nearest big towns, the dark skies offer a great chance to see the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) each evening – the icing on the cake of this memorable challenge!
