Description:

The site of the Iceland Volcano Marathon is jaw-droppingly dramatic, massive and spectacular. Set near Lake Mývatn at the divergent boundaries of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the route will run directly on the North Volcanic Zone. It’s a hot bed of geothermal activity with geysers, hot springs, lava fields and glaciers – what’s more, the volcanic zone is still very much active.

With the massive Hverfjall crater at the center of the route, runners will pass through soft, black volcano sand, run next to geysers in the Martian-red geothermal area of Namarskard and cross the plains of lava rock and minor volcano craters. MUST BOOK AS A 6-DAY PACKAGE.
