Renovation and maintenance of bike trails and ski slopes in The Blue Mountains in Iceland

We will be working once again with the City of Reykjavík in the main Skiing area in the capital region of Iceland, Bláfjöll or the Blue Mountains and Skálafell.In Skálafell, the ski slopes are turned into a Bike park during summertime and mountain bike enthusiasts can nourish their passion. The main tasks will include renovation and maintenance work on the bike trails; mainly raking and scraping them up. Other possible tasks include paintwork as well as general cleaning of the area.

In the Blue Mountains, the main tasks will be maintaining the slopes and preparing them for the next ski season. The city and few sports associations run lodges and mountain huts there and they might also need some renovation work, such as painting and/or cleaning.

The working plan is flexible and it will depend on the needs of our local host. Volunteers need to be motivated to work mainly outdoors on physical jobs and under changing weather conditions.

The project happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The bright nights are magical and staying awake enjoying the surroundings is a unique experience..

Project dates:

  • June 21 - July 5, 2020
  • July 5 - July 19, 2020
