Call for volunteers for summer 2018

Johnny Rolt and Ollie Campbell have made a short film about their experiences volunteering with the Thórsmörk Trail Volunteers last summer. As well as a taste of life at the volunteer camps, the film visits our projects and work sites in Thórsmörk, Goðaland and along the Laugavegurinn trail. Congratulations to Johnny and Ollie on this amazing work. It's beautiful!

The Thórsmörk trail volunteer programme was established by the Icelandic Forest Service (Skógræktin) in 2012. Its main role is to assist with the maintenance of the hiking trails in Thórsmörk and Goðaland, South Iceland, although teams are also involved in a variety of other practical nature conservation tasks in the area.

Spend a few minutes in Thórsmörk with us now by watching this beautiful film.

Volunteers wanted! The search for our 2018 team begins

Placement dates and application forms for our 2018 volunteer programme are now available.

We are putting together an international volunteer team that will join us at our camps in Thórsmörk next summer. We have volunteer placements for two or six weeks and there are longer placements for volunteer team leaders with our Operations team. No previous experience of trail construction is necessary as training will be provided. Participants organise their own travel plans and join us at the meeting point. There is no participation fee.

We will start allocating placements as soon as applications reach us so if you would like to join us in Thórsmörk in 2018, don't delay!

Applications will be open until January 31st.
