The Fire and Ice Ultra in Iceland is certainly a very special race, not only for the challenge it will pose to those participating but also for the incredible raw and extreme beauty of the Icelandic environment in which the event takes place. The 250 km 6 day stage race starts near Europe's Largest Glacier (The Vatnajokull Glacier), then winds its way north through Iceland's most extreme and remote landscape. The event will be held in August 2019. All Iceland is the official travel partner of Fire and Ice Ultra and our travel package matches the race schedule. Book with All Iceland and all you will have to worry about is the training! We will take care of you from the moment you arrive in Iceland to the moment you depart and you'll travel with your fellow runners.

Not quite up for 250km? Check out the new Fire and Ice Half, 125km Ultra race 24th of May 2019.

ITINERARY

The Ultra race program starts in North Iceland, where you stay the first night and the last night (included in race fee).

If you want to arrive early or depart later to see more of Iceland, we can assist with this. Often runners traveling from further afield like to get rid of jet lag with a night or two in Reykjavík prior to the event and we group and link runners together so pre-race get togethers can take place. Similarly if you wish to relax and unwind after the race, perhaps with friends and family, we can arrange this.

On day two, you head into the wilderness and stay one night prior to the official start of the race. The 250km footrace will comprise 6 stages over 6 days with stages varying in distance from 20km up to 60-70km (distances approx, to be confirmed after final route recce). Don't be fooled by a potential 20km stage, in all likelihood these might be the hardest 20km of your life. Every day will be a different experience, either through the challenge it presents or through the incredible landscape this area of Iceland has to offer…… or a bit of both!

Here is an opportunity for friends and family to get involved! The program ends in North Iceland on Saturday late evening 31st of August where friends and/or family can celebrate your achievements with you and fellow runners. Contact us to arrange this. The following day, Sunday 1st of September you take the flight back to Reykjavik and the flight to the UK in the afternoon.

All Iceland are one of the sponsors for Fire and Ice and the official travel partner for the race from the start. We offer a complete travel package taking care of all the ground arrangements for competitors including flights from the UK to Iceland, as well as internal flights and transfers while in Iceland. Because of the start location of the race, this can be tricky to organise independently in terms of logistics which is why Fire and Ice has partnered up with us making this easier for competitors.

We are already taking bookings for 2019! We advise to book early as the arrival date falls within one of the busiest weekends in Iceland, the weekend of the Reykjavik Marathon and Culture Night so early booking is essential to avoid disappointment and take advantage of best prices. The price of flights will increase the closer to the date and can sell out!

Note: this is a travel package only and does not include race entry fee.
