2015 Iceland Trail Running + Wellness Retreata six-day adventure in the land of fire and ice
In August, a dozen women from across the U.S. arrived in Reykjavik, Iceland for a six-day trail running adventure in the highlands of Iceland.
Our adventure began in Landmannahellir, at the foot of Mt. Hekla, an active volcano covered in glacial ice. In this other-worldly place, hot water bubbles up from underground and sulfurous steam seeps from cracks between the rock lining the trails snaking across the gold- and orange-streaked rhyolite mountains.
“This is the adventure of a lifetime. The runs are fantastic and the leadership is excellent. You can focus on running because all the details are taken care of.”
“I was inspired by other women on the trip … I now have a completely different opinion regarding what I can personally do with running. Running and life in general has taken on a new look since my return.”
