Thórsmörk Trail Volunteer Programme (Iceland Forest Service / Skógrækt ríkisins)

The Thórsmörk trail volunteer programme was established by Iceland’s Forest Service (Skógrækt ríkisins) to assist with the maintenance of the hiking trails in Thórsmörk and Goðaland. This area is very popular with tourists and maintaining good quality hiking trails helps to protect fragile areas and improve safety for visitors.

The volunteer programme runs from May – October and our work can be divided into three main parts; trail maintenance, trail mapping and erosion control. The Forest Service works closely with a number of partner organisations who send volunteer teams to help with the work as well as recruiting its own trail maintenance volunteers and team leaders.
