Our new (long) long-range trail teams…
We are delighted to announce that a new hiking trail maintenance project has been organised in partnership with Ferðafélag Íslands (Iceland Touring Association). This summer we will be heading 30km north from our home at Langidalur, to establish a new project working on the Laugavegur trail. We are very excited to be starting this new adventure with our friends at FÍ.
Our new northern long-range teams will include volunteers prepared and trained in Thórsmörk and will be based in the Hvanngil area. This project has been developed as a response to the urgent need for repairs to damaged sections of the Laugavegur trail and in the initial work phase, tasks will focus on clear route marking and drainage to help prevented further damage. Work is scheduled for the middle of the summer.
We would like to thank our friends at Kynnisferðir, Reykjavik Excursions, for their support and assistance with transport for the teams. We really do appreciate their ongoing support for this work.
