In July 2018, I was lucky enough to travel to the land of fire and ice and trek across one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen. This trek took a total of 5 days which included walking all day and spending the evening sleeping in a tent with no showers, unfortunately this was done after summiting Mt Elbrus and I still couldn't walk properly; therefore I spent these 5 days hobbling at the back of the pack and having to borrow a fellow hikers spare knee brace. It was the most beautiful trek I have ever done and would do it all over again in a heart beat. Our second day hiking to Lake Alftavatn was tough, there were such high winds my backpack was getting lifted off my back and I also got blown over right before approaching a crevasse; the joys of weighing a whopping 52kgs hey?! Everyone needs this trek on their list!
