As the first signs of Autumn appear around us in Thórsmörk our programme is coming to an end. The last group of volunteers have one more week before they head home leaving a small team to pack down the Langidalur camp in September.
Our team is now working on finishing the last major projects of the summer which include a flight of timber framed steps on the Fimmvörðuháls trail and sections of stone retainment wall, gravel drains and new timber steps on the main trail to Húsadalur. Both projects are progressing very well and if the weather is kind to us, all the work will be completed this season.
Our last big project of the season will be a trip together with all our remaining volunteers for a long-range project planned at Emstrur with Ferðafélag Íslands… it is very exciting as it our first task on the Laugavegur trail outside Thórsmörk.
