At 65° North, 1215 metres, and 83 years old – meet the amazing Gwen Gallagher

Gwen Gallagher is a fantastic advert for the benefits of keeping fit and active. At the age of 83, she joined our Icelandic Explorer tour and did a top grade walk to the summit of Sulur Mountain, almost in the Arctic Circle – leaving some younger members of the group trailing behind.
