Caves and canyon in the East of Iceland
Description: volunteers will work in the municipality of Fljótsdalshérað in various environmental projects around the region. The volunteers will help: Rebuilding an old rock wall, collecting large stones and adding to the wall. Cleaning caves and maintaining walking paths at Magnahellir and Dimmugljúfur which is a beautiful canyon with hiking trails. Clean the area around Laugavellir which is an impressive geothermal area with a natural pool. Clean a hiking trail on Víknaslóðir, The trails of the Inlets, one of the best hiking areas in Iceland. In this project SEEDS volunteers will be mostly doing construction, repair and/or marking work in hiking trails and walking paths in the East of Iceland. The main tasks will be to mark and repair hiking trails or walking paths in an isolated area of mountains
Type of Work: ork also helps to improve safety for visitors. Additional tasks may be cleaning or beautifying the area, like hand-picking garbage or collecting trash blown by the wind or brought by the sea to the shores and surrounds. The working day normally runs from 09:00 - 17:00 with breaks for lunch and coffee; however, please be prepared for some flexibility due to the nature of Iceland's changeable weather. No previous experience is necessary but the work is demanding and requires a good physical condition. As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as depending on the weather, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks or activities planned.
Accommodation: SEEDS volunteers will be hosted in a local mountain hut in the municipality, away from the town. Volunteers will sleep on mattresses on the floor sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag. The house is equipped with a kitchen. Volunteers will share the duties of preparing food, cooking meals and cleaning. There is a shower and remember to bring bathing suit to bath in the natural hot spring. Do not forget some traditional/typical food and/or drinks from your home country for the international evening.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.
