Cleaning caves and renovating hiking trails in Iceland

The volunteers will work in Fljótsdalshérað in various environmental projects around the region. The volunteer group will help:

- Rebuilding an old rock wall and garden, collecting large stones and adding to the wall.

- Cleaning caves and maintaining walking paths at Magnahellir and Dimmugljúfur which is a beautiful canyon with hiking trails.

- Cleaning the area around Laugavellir which is an impressive geothermal area with a natural pool.

- Maintaining different trails in one of the best hiking areas in Iceland.

In this project, volunteers will be mostly doing construction, working with stones, repairing or marking of hiking trails and walking paths in the East of Iceland. Some of the trails or paths are located in an isolated area of mountains and fjords. Well maintained paths enable people to visit these amazing areas without damaging them and this important work also helps to improve safety for visitors. Additional tasks may be cleaning or beautifying the area, like hand-picking garbage or collecting trash blown by the wind or brought by some visitors.

Project dates: July 8 - July 19, 2022

Cadip volunteer project review:

"I had an incredible time in Iceland in August, it was my first time doing a Cadip volunteer program and it was absolutely amazing, rewarding, challenging and fun. The nature was breathtaking and I enjoyed talking to people from all over the world and immersing myself in a new local culture. I enjoyed getting to know the values, traditions and daily routine of locals and expanding my knowledge of other cultures and ideals." Maia N.
