Video from Thórsmörk

As we gather our 2023 Trailteams, we are receiving a lot of enquires about the placements, our work tasks and conditions at our volunteer camps.

This short film was made by Johnny Rolt and Ollie Campbell when they joined us a few years ago. It shows the experience of our Trailteam volunteers and captures the spirit of the programme. For anyone thinking of join us for the first time this season, the film gives a good idea of what to expect from our volunteer placements.

2023 Dates, details and application forms are available here… Volunteer opportunities.

Summer dreaming…

After 6 weeks of applications and interviews, our 2021 Trailteams are taking shape and preparations for the summer are going well.

Although we are focused on office tasks and preparations at this time of year, it is always very exciting to meet the new teams and talk about our plans for the summer, the challenges and the adventures ahead. Despite the ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we remain cautiously optimistic that the situation will improve and allow us to go ahead with plans to return to the trails in May.

Just in case you were still deciding – It is not too late to join.
Full details including project outlines, dates and application forms can be found on our website…

Applications for 2021 will close on Sunday 31st January, so if you would like to join us in Thórsmörk this summer, please do get in contact by then.

Volunteers wanted! Applications for 2021 are now open

Today we launched our 2021 programme and the search for volunteers has begun.

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. Iceland’s notoriously changeable weather means that our teams have to be well prepared with warm clothing, good waterproofs and sturdy tents. Due to the strenuous nature of our work, participants must be physically fit and as many of our work sites are in remote locations, we do a lot of hiking to get to them!

Full details and application forms are now available…

We will start to allocate places at the beginning of January and applications will close on January 31st.
