The ISPCA through Charity Challenges is offering you the opportunity to get fit by signing up for an Open Charity Challenge in 2020 and 2021! Some of the challenges are exclusively in aid of one particular charity, but where you see the words “in aid of any charity”, you can raise funds for the ISPCA as a registered Irish charity. Get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org as you will require authorisation from the ISPCA to fundraise in our name.

Home to some of Europe’s most incredible landscapes, the Iceland Lava Trek takes in thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords and spouting geysers. Crossing the phenomenal Landmannalaugar, the route is through one of the most actively volcanic and alien landscapes in Iceland, provding awe-inspiring views at every step.
The duration may be short, but the days are long and the terrain is very challenging, with steep climbs and rough descents. In addition, you’ll also be in charge of setting up and breaking down camp, making this a truly tough challenge. But don’t fear - on completing your challenge you have the chance rest aching limbs in the famous Blue Lagoon.
From the madness of Delhi, to the beauty and tranquillity of the Indian Himalaya, this unique expedition is the perfect introduction to India.
This challenge combines awesome Himalayan trekking with a visit to India’s exiled Tibetan community. The trek begins and ends at the heart of the world’s highest mountain range in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan community are located.
The expedition follows the Uhl River, through rhododendron and evergreen forests, taking in Hindu settlements and isolated Buddhist monasteries. The region remains largely unvisited, which makes it a pristine and unspoilt area to trek.
Consider extending your stay to explore the Taj Mahal, Keoladeo National Park and Fatephur Sikri.
There are lots of open challenge options for you to participate in in 2019 for the ISPCA you can check them all out at https://www.charitychallenge.com/ for more information about the steps involved booking an overseas challenge please click here https://www.charitychallenge.com/more-information#joiningachallenge .
