Mission: To complete a 60km, 3-day traverse of the Langjökull glacier, followed by 2 days of exhilarating activities & incredible Icelandic sights

Few places offer more opportunities for exhilaration than Iceland. The Fire and Ice Challenge combines a serious polar expedition with two days of volcanoes, white water and stunning scenery. This level two Shackleton challenge will start with a three-day traverse of the mighty Langjökull Glacier, covering 60km of majestic landscape in true isolation. You'll develop your skills in pulk hauling, navigation and camping out on the snow in sub-zero temperatures. After completing your expedition, you will be taken to the magnificent Torfhús Retreat hotel in the heart of Iceland's Golden Circle, where you will be treated to a blend of relaxed eco-luxury and authentic Icelandic style. From there you'll enjoy a range of challenges including descending into a dormant volcano, white water rafting and horse riding (weather dependent).

ITINERARY

REVIEWS

I have come back re-energised and recharged. The whole Shackleton team was brilliant and I felt so privileged to be part of it. I would love to do another challenge at some point.
