Trek 2024 destination revealed - East Cheshire Hospice

Trek 2024 destination revealed

Supporters of East Cheshire Hospice are off on their travels again – this time to Iceland.

Places are being offered for a three-day trek to discover a country nicknamed the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ in November 2024.

An informal open evening on Tuesday, June 6, from 7-8 pm will explain more about the trip to the Nordic island on the fringe of the Arctic circle.

Hospice Challenge Events Co-ordinator Bethan Wade said: “It’s the trip of a lifetime to some of the world’s most breathtaking natural landscapes.

Destination Iceland for East Cheshire Hospice supporters.

“Explore active volcanoes and lava fields, bubbling mud pools and hot springs, walk along two continental plates and perhaps even spot the Northern Lights.

“We’ll be hiking to Iceland’s youngest volcano Gelingaldir and neighbouring Fagradaslsfjall before exploring the ethereal peaks of Mount Hengill heritage site along the fault lines between Europe and America.

“The trek is graded moderate to challenging, with walkers covering long distances over varying terrain on consecutive days.”

A £350 registration fee is payable upon booking, with participants asked to fundraise at least £3,300 for the Hospice.

Support and fundraising ideas will be provided and a self-funded option is also available. The trip is from November 13 to 18.

The adventure is the latest undertaken by Hospice supporters, some of whom are undertaking the Camino Trail in Spain in October.

The Hospice has also been to the Sahara, Nepal and the Grand Canyon in the last few years.
