Forestry and trail maintenance in the West of Iceland

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: CADIP

The volunteers will be working in a beautiful forest located in the countryside district of Borgarbyggð, West of Iceland, doing nature-conservation and environment-oriented tasks. We have been cooperating with the Icelandic Forest Service and our groups of volunteers have been helping out for 15 years in different locations all around the country; with very good results for the participants, the projects and the Icelandic nature conservation and reforestation efforts. The main tasks will be to maintain hiking paths, build stairs, make and put up signs. Volunteers will also put up benches and tables in the forest. Other tasks will be to trim branches and beautify groves that are located near hiking paths. Well maintained paths enable people to visit these amazing areas without damaging the surroundings and in addition our volunteers’ work helps to improve safety for visitors.

No previous experience is necessary, but the work is demanding and requires a 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: August 14 - August 27, 2022
