JOB: Iceland Trail Team Volunteer
LOC: Thórsmörk, South Iceland
FOR: Icelandic Forest Service (Skógræktin)No previous experience of trail construction work is necessary as practical training will be provided. We are looking for participants who have some experience of camping and hill walking, enjoy wilderness landscapes and are ready for a challenge. Iceland’s notoriously changeable weather means that our teams have to be well prepared with warm clothing, good waterproofs and sturdy tents. Due to the strenuous nature of our work, participants must be physically fit and as many of our work sites are in remote locations, we do a lot of hiking to get to them! Our international volunteer teams include volunteers from all over the world and the working language on the programme is English. Participants must be 20+ years of age. Participants organise and pay their own travel to and from the meeting point in Thórsmörk. There is no participation fee. Time Commitment: 6-week placement. ASK: Full details and application forms can be found at https://trailteam.is/opportunities/
