In 2011 with his closest friend Remi Mcmurtry, Will Copetake hiked an amazing 600 kms north to south across Iceland as part of a 3 month expedition; amazingly all on a budget of only £600 funded largely by selling tea on hilltops.
Below is a 20-minute film documenting the highs and lows of their fantastic adventure across Iceland.
From may to 2013 to may 2014 Will embarked on a year long solo and self supported expedition to discover his home country. ‘The Machair to Munro’ expedition aimed to discover the culture and landscape of Scotland. Kayaking solo 1600km around the four cardinal points of the Scottish mainland starting and finishing at each border was followed by a winter round of the Munro mountains (3000ft…there are 282 of them) using a bicycle to travel between.

Lasting 364 days and covering a total of 5900km with 147000m of vertical ascent the expedition awarded Will both the Scottish and National UK 'Adventurer of the Year 2015'.
Will now works outdoors leading hill-walking and kayaking journeys in Scotland and abroad, notably Will has spent a lot of time recently guiding kayaking groups in Patagonia (Argentina), and you can discover more about his amazing journeys via his excellent blog: The Will Copestake Blog.
