2019 GSB Iceland Trek
In August 2019 a group of Bibby Marine employees collaborated with fellow staff in Bibby Line Group to trek across Iceland to raise money for charities such as the RNLI. The team took part in a once-in-a-lifetime Icelandic adventure, which saw them trek through breath-taking lava fields, multi-coloured mountains and shining glaciers over a tough 55 km journey.
The group were fully immersed in the irregular landscape of Iceland from traversing glaciers, crossing freezing cold rivers and sliding down dusty mountains with little control, whilst ending each day camping in various parts of southern Iceland. On the penultimate day of the trip, they made a final push to the finish line in Thorsmörk shadowed by some of the country’s largest glaciers. Everyone who participated had an amazing time, with wonderful memories to share.
Vicki Wyllie, GSB Coordinator said:
“This was a difficult challenge which pushed all the participants to, and in some cases past, their physical limit, we faced some big climbs, waded through bitterly cold glacial rivers and trekked for up to 12 hours each day. Everyone who took part should be exceptionally proud of themselves for taking on the remote Highlands of Iceland”.
The trek resulted in over £25,00 raised for various charities.
