On a cold and rainy January afternoon we needed a little reminder of Icelandic summer.
This short film was made by Johnny Rolt and Ollie Campbell when they joined us 2017. It is a really beautiful film and it captures life at the volunteer camps and our work projects in Thórsmörk, Goðaland and along the Laugavegurinn trail. For anyone joining us for the first time this season, the film gives a good idea of what to expect from our volunteer placements.
We wanted to share this amazing film once again.
Sit back and enjoy a few minutes of summer…
We have received a record number of applications for our programme this season and our first week back at work has been busy with reading applications and completing Skype interviews. We are delighted that there has been so much interest in the programme and it has been really nice to hear from so many people who would like to join us for a second (or third) time.
We have now started to allocate places so although we will keep the applications open until the end of the month, don’t delay getting in contact if you would like to join us this season. No previous experience of trail construction work is necessary as practical training will be provided. We are looking for participants who have some experience of camping and hill walking, enjoy wilderness landscapes and are ready for a challenge.
Allocations are now underway and the final deadline for volunteer applications for this season is January 31st.
Thank you to everyone who worked with us on the trails or supported our teams in 2018.
A Happy New Year to you all and very best wishes for 2019.
Merry Christmas to you all, and best wishes for a Happy New Year.
Our search for summer volunteers is about to begin again.
Placement details, dates and application forms will be available here on December 15th. Interviews and placement allocations begin in the new year and applications will be open until January 31st.
