Back to work
After an extended winter break, we are now back to work preparing for the summer projects in Thórsmörk and Goðaland. As usual, our season has begun at Thjórsárdalur Forestry Station (pictured) where we prepare materials and equipment before returning to our camps to start the practical work.
In these strange times, we will begin the season without groups and the revised work plan for our staff in May includes GIS data collection and work on the new hiking map as well as maintenance and improvements at the Langidalur base camp – so that it’s ready (and even better) for the groups when they can return.
Travel restrictions, safety concerns and ongoing uncertainty mean that many of our international volunteers will not be able to join us this season and have now deferred their placements until next year. We very much look forward to welcoming them to the team in 2021.
