Cleaning caves and renovating hiking trails in Iceland
Cleaning caves and renovating hiking trails in Iceland

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

- Rebuilding an old rock wall, 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.

- Cleaning a hiking trail on Víknaslóðir, The trails of the Inlets, one of the best hiking areas in Iceland.In this project, volunteers will be mostly doing construction, repair and/or marking work on hiking trails and walking paths in the East of Iceland. The main tasks will be to mark and repair hiking trails or walking paths in an isolated area of mountains and fjords. The working area of Hjarðarhagi, Magnahellir and Laugavellir is within driving distance from Egilsstaðir which is the largest town in the East of the country.

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 the sea to the shores and surroundings.

The working day normally runs from 9:00-17:00 with breaks for lunch and coffee; however, please be prepared for some flexibility due to the nature of Iceland's changeable weather. No previous experience is necessary but the work is demanding and requires good physical condition. As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as depending on the weather, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks or activities planned.

Dates:  July 1 - July 15, 2020
