Hitting the slopes - Blue Mountains
Description: SEEDS volunteers will be working with the City of Reykjavík in the main skiing area in the capital region of Iceland, Bláfjöll or in English called the Blue Mountains.
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. Weather in Iceland is unpredictable, so be prepared for all kinds of weather and be sure to bring warm winter clothing since most of the work will take place outdoors and it can get cold in the mountains. The camp happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days.

Type of Work: region of Iceland, Bláfjöll or in English called the Blue Mountains. The main tasks in this camp will be maintaining the slopes and preparing them for the next season. The city and a few sports associations run lodges and mountain huts there and they might also need some renovation jobs, such as painting and/or cleaning. The working plan is flexible and it will depend on the needs of our local hosts. Volunteers need to be motivated to work mainly outdoors on physical jobs and under changeable weather conditions. As the landscape is raw, the work is physically very demanding but also rewarding. Volunteers should have a motivation for working outdoors and to experience an isolated area close to the capital.
Accommodation: SEEDS volunteers will stay in one of the ski lodges in the mountains and sleep in a sleeping bag accommodation, sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities.
Language: English will be the official language of the camp; high proficiency is not required.
Requirements: Participation fee EUR 220 (Euros). Age: 18+
