Volunteer at Skaftafell National Park and join our teams to preserve the Vatnajökull National Park in Skaftafell. One of the most beautiful areas of the country, the park is a green oasis surrounded by one of the worlds biggest glaciers.

You can join from 2 to 6 weeks, from June to August each year. As a team of up to 8 volunteers you will be carrying out a range of wilderness management projects. Work focuses on the trail network around the centre and on mountain trails as these trails suffer from severe erosion.

As a volunteer you will be:

  • boardwalk building
  • resurfacing trails
  • improving drainage
  • bridge building
  • stone step construction
  • removal of invasive species

The cost is as follows: 2 week programme is £340, 4 weeks is £480, and 6 weeks is £660.
