Iceland Expedition, July 2018

Our intrepid explorers landed safely in Iceland on 2 July, undertook a 9 hour coach journey to base camp and have subsequently begun their treks in their expedition teams to the Asjka region of Iceland.

The teams are exploring the volcanic landscape that is enclosed by the mighty Dyngjufjöll mountains, which was used during training for the Apollo program to prepare astronauts for the lunar missions.

We had an update from Miss Dart yesterday evening (10 July)...

"They are doing well living off freeze-dried rations. It has been extremely windy and they had to pin their teepee down extremely securely last night! They have been to waterfalls and are independently trekking across Icelandic wilderness."

You can follow their adventures on the expedition blog from the British Exploring Society here:
