Renovation & maintenance of bike trails & ski slopes in Iceland
The volunteers will be working again with the Reykjavík municipality in two of the main skiing and recreational areas in the capital region of Iceland, Bláfjöll (or the Blue Mountains) and Skálafell.
In Skálafell, the ski slopes are turned into a Bike park during summertime and mountain bike enthusiasts can nourish their passion. The main tasks will include renovation and maintenance work on the bike trails; mainly raking and scraping them up. Other possible tasks may be related to general cleaning of the area.
In the Blue Mountains, the main tasks will be maintaining the slopes and preparing them for the next ski season. The city and a few sports associations run lodges and mountain huts there and they might also need some renovation work, such as painting and/or cleaning.
The working plan is flexible and it will depend on the needs of our local host. Volunteers need to be motivated to work mainly outdoors on physical jobs and under changing weather conditions.
The project happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The bright nights are magical and staying awake enjoying the surroundings is a unique experience. During the time of the project, participants will have the opportunity to experience the midnight sun as there are 24 hours of light even if the sun sets for shorts periods of time.
