Chris started leading for Countrywide Holidays in 1970 and spent summers at their guest houses in Snowdonia, the Lake District and Scotland. He went on to act as a guide for the Austrian Alpine Club. My career and family commitments took me away from leading but when the opportunity arose he started again in the late 1990s.

Northern waters have amazing scenery - glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords
Iceland is not the just the land of ice and fire that many imagine - it is warmed by the gulf stream and has surprisingly mild weather in summer and early autumn. From Reykjavik we walk in the Thingvellir National Park, where the European and American continents meet, creating a landscape with the appearance of a crevassed glacier.
