About our activities

Our program is inspired by the elements, representing everything that the south of Iceland has to offer. We have split our activities into the four elemental categories: Fire, Water, Earth and Wind. 

To earn the Elemental Award, you only need to complete at least 1 challenge from each Element: Fire, Earth, Wind and Water!
