Viking Ultra Race Iceland 2024

Viking Ultra Iceland
Total 125 Km 
The most Volcanically active country on earth
Another year, another Volcano, Cancelled until Volcano stops   
The Suspension is the Viking Ultra ONLY, and does NOT effect the Fire + Ice Ultra 

Suspended until scientific research clears the area for access to more remote parts of the Viking Ultra course 

Also known as the mean little brother of the Fire + Ice Ultra
A tough event to introduce you to multi-day ultra race events, 
or for those who just don’t have time for multi-day events that traditionally take 8 or 9 days from your life

Stunning scenery and a convenient and fantastic location.
With steaming rivers, bubbling mud pools, geysers, dramatic volcanic landscapes, lava fields, and fields of volcanic ash,
the Viking Ultra course introduces you to the unique landscapes of Iceland.
The next course will take you to the edge of the New Lava fields from the 2021, 2022 and 2023 Volcano eruptions
The 2021, 2022 and 2023 events were affected by new 3 annual Volcanic Eruptions that were in the middle of the course, after the scientists, the Icelandic government and the National Park have not yet declared the area safe for 2024, meaning we won't have time to plan, the possibility of yet another eruption before the proposed 2024 dates is still quite high,  parts of the Viking Ultra course are now under millions of tons of New Lava, join us next time to see the new course with routes that will take us up to the new lava fields, with spectacular formations and dramatic landscapes shaped just a few years ago. 

You can see the First Volcanic Eruption  in the middle of 
Viking Ultra Course HERE
Apart from some limited Tourist tracks to see the Volcano, the National Park restricted access to the wild country in the area

Race HQ is in South West Iceland around 40 to 45 minutes from
Keflavik International Airport.

Usually this time of the year there are longer days and warmer temperatures when

With good weather, we may get the Midnight Sun.
