Dangoor Next Generation Iceland
In summer 2017, you could be spending 3 weeks exploring the Icelandic wilderness. With approximately 30 active volcanoes, steaming geysers, hot springs, and bubbling mud pools, Iceland is one of the most geologically active places on Earth. A true land of ‘fire and ice’, this awe inspiring landscape is also home to Europe’s most powerful waterfalls, largest desert and largest ice cap outside the poles.
By accepting the challenge of joining Dangoor Next Generation programme, you have the opportunity to discover a landscape so out of this world that you will be forgiven for thinking you are on the moon; in fact the volcanic deserts and lava fields were used as training ground for American astronauts before the first moon landing. You can follow in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong and trek to the crater rim of the mighty Askja volcano to look down into the huge Crater Lake.
Camping out in the wild, near glacial melt rivers for drinking water and washing, your team will set out from Base Camp to tackle mountain ascents and awe-inspiring canyons with amazing rock formations.
