Trekkers depart on once in a lifetime journey across Iceland
September 8th, 2016
Today nine intrepid Nova Scotians set forth on the adventure of a lifetime to the wilds of Iceland.
The enthusiastic team of volunteers is headed out on a 7 day guided journey through the Fjallabak Nature Reserve. Their trek is a fundraiser in support of the Nova Scotia Nature Trust and wilderness conservation across Nova Scotia.
The team will experience spectacular volcanic landscapes, inviting hot springs, moss-covered lava fields and steam-filled valleys of this remote and stunning wilderness area.
The trip will be expertly guided by internationally renowned adventurer and mountaineer Wally Berg, of Berg Adventures International.
The trek follows the “think global, act local” philosophy where participants experience some of the world’s most spectacular national parks and protected areas, while raising funds and awareness to save nature in their own backyard.
Tax-receipted donations in support of the Expedition for the Earth 2016 fundraiser can be made at expeditionfortheearth.ca. All funds raised go directly towards land conservation efforts.
