IDEAS, Iceland trek Supporting people with IBD, Donations and Fund Raising Event.
IBD Adventures and IDEAS is proud to be working in conjunction with Sea to Sky Expeditions in order to raise awareness of the issues people living with intestinal disease face every day of their lives. Sea to Sky is happy to be donating a percentage of each spot sold towards this worthy cause.
Participants on this tour will be asked to try and raise support for the IDEAS as individuals as well. Your efforts will be going almost exclusively towards a number of tangible projects (only 3% of revenue at IDEAS goes towards administration). Specifically, funds raised will put towards a scholarship set up for nurses looking to specialize in this field and towards funding for a new research lab in Kelowna, BC. You will receive tax receipts for the total of all funds raised. Donations will be made directly with the IDEAS website.
Discover the wonderful scenery of Iceland on this once in a lifetime IDEAS trekking challenge as we trek through a striking mix of geothermal valleys, great mountain scenery, fantastic streams and waterfalls.
Seven day vehicle assisted hike/trek from hut to hut.
By combining two of Iceland’s best known hikes, you get an unbelievable seven day trek through incredibly diverse landscapes. From the famous geothermal area of Landmannalaugar to the ever so popular waterfall of Skógar. This path takes us through it all; over multicolored hills and black sands, alongside small gullies and great canyons, through verdurous valleys, between glamorous glaciers, and past wonderful waterfalls.
