Following the success of Walk for the Dogs in 2016 / ´17 Dermot has decided to go again.
We´re now into the second part of Walk for the Dogs-2 and some modifications have been made to the planned route.
The planned departure date is now the 5th July of 2019 and with the aim of walking from the Northern most point on mainland Iceland at Rifstangi, 3kms below the Arctic Circle, to the Southern most point at Dyrholaey near the town of Vik.
The route is now close to 600kms and will as originally planned make use of the F Road network for the most part with the final section using two of Iceland's most famous hiking trails the Laugavegur & Fimmvorduhals trails.
Because these trails can sometimes be shut due to bad weather (blizzards can happen even in July) a back up route has also been mapped.
The current plan is to complete the route in three weeks or slightly more including rest days.
There´ll be a few training events between now and the depart date so stay tuned for updates via the Facebook page
