Fancy a wild '˜winter' charity trek to Eyjafjallajökull?

Scotland's animals charity is staging two unusual fundraisers this summer - to a volcanic island where it's 'winter' at the height of summer.

Blue icebergs floating in a glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland in summer.

The SSPCA Iceland trek adventure will take those involved through some of the country’s most rugged scenery, and is described as a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some incredible landscapes first hand,

The route takes trekkers from Landmanlauga through the mountains to witness the permanent icecaps of Myrdals and Eyjafjallajökull - a volcano completely covered by an ice cap.

There are two options on dates, with the next trip taking place from July 4 to 8 (probably too soon for most people), and the one after planned for August 29 to September 2.

Apart from organisation support from the SSPCA participants are sent a step by step guide on how to raise funds, and can promote fundraising efforts online too.

Those taking part also get an SSPCA T-shirt to wear during the Trek, so everyone knows what the effort is in aid of.
