I did a hike in southern Iceland in winter. Beautiful, but I'm glad I packed ski Goggles.

Taking the day off work on 1st November for a hike in Glencoe or Cairngorms if any local, or not local, boardies fancied a day out. Could be tempted into an overnighter.

Slight update.

Mini-KG has 6 day trek in Dec including Poon Hill, followed by 3-4 community work. Trek is slightly less than he would like (max 3500m I think) but overall looks great.

I think it will give him a good taste of things.

Spoke to another parent last night with kid on same trip - they did Kokoda this year which I think is meant to be 1) excellent, 2) tough.

Quite an Aussie thing to do - anyone done it? What’s the overall experience like?

Humid, muddy, tough is what I have heard, but usually you have porters I believe.

Australians generally seem to think it’s very hard.

Prepare for many steps, that's all I'll say
