Trail maintenance around Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Capital region


Hvalfjarðarsveit is a small community between Reykjavik and Akranes. The population is around 600 inhabitants and most of the people are doing agricultural work or tourism. This area is known by the beautiful areas and among the most amazing natural places are Botnsdalur, Þyrilsklif and of course Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland. The waterfall drops into a mossy green extremely majestic canyon, the hike is worth every minute, and is not that difficult even though you need to face some challenges on your way up. Hiking up to Glymur waterfall is one of the most enjoyable and exciting hikes that you can find because the whole area and vista is truly majestic and exceptionally beautiful. Each step you take you get more and more eager to view the big beauty and once at the top, and on your way up, you get to see some epic sceneries and views.

Volunteers will have environmental tasks in the area near to the waterfall, for example fixing hiking paths and cleaning the area. The work will depend on the weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. This is a perfect project for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. Working hours are about 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Project dates: August 1 - August 12, 2018
