The next chapter in our ‪#‎HospiceStories‬ project. Our team of Cornwall Hospice Care trekkers: The 'Iceland 7' took on the once in a lifetime adventure across the vast lava fields, glaciers and volcanoes of Iceland, all in support of our special Cornish charity.

In partnership with the highly professional Expedition Wise (specialists in organsing charity challenges) a team of seven trekkers took on the Iceland challenge in July this year.  Over the past four years overseas challenges such as this have raised over £400,000 for our Cornish charity which is a fantastic contribution to the funds we need to continue our services. Our charity relies heavily on the generosity of the general public for the majority of its income, and challenges such as this are a vital source of income.

Iceland is home to vast lava fields containing volcanoes (many still active), glistening glaciers, spouting geysers, hot springs and waterfalls. This once in a lifetime experience saw our trekkers covering lunar-like terrain and in addition to their daily treks  also setting up camp each night, of which a couple of them had never camped before!

Watch the documentary below to see first hand the challenging experiences that our 7 trekkers encountered:
