Skaftafell Wilderness Volunteer Programme, Iceland
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.
