The main activities of our team are maintaining hiking trails in the Thórsmörk area, landscape restoration (erosion control), GIS mapping and tree planting. Our volunteers usually join the programme 6-week placements. In addition, our 'Operations team' includes the volunteer team leaders and is responsible for project support, logistics and the day to day running of the programme.
On our 6-week placements, the project combines practical conservation work in one of the most beautiful parts of Iceland with an opportunity to complete the famous 4-day Laugavegur hiking trail from Landmannalaugar to Thórsmörk. These placements are an opportunity to get to know this amazing area and play an important role in helping to protect it. Participants must be 20+ years of age. There are no participation fees.
Applications for summer 2021 are now open.
