About


Iceland Northbound is a unique expedition that will attempt to travel over 300 miles on foot, packraft, and ski from Iceland’s southernmost point to its northernmost point. The expedition will take approximately three weeks in May and June of 2014. It will be unsupported, and will be the first of its kind.

Iceland Northbound is notable because it will:

• attempt the first unsupported south to north traverse of Iceland, and one of the only unsupported traverses of Iceland in any direction.

• attempt the second full descent of Iceland’s second longest river, the Jökulsá á Fjöllum. This would also be the first unsupported descent and the first packraft descent.

• attempt an unsupported ski traverse of Europe’s largest glacier, the Vatnajökull.

• use three means of travel to cross beaches, highlands, ocean, lakes, glaciers, and rivers.
