Inspired by Iceland
SEEDS 048 - Trails near Katla Volcano & Myrdalsjoküll glacier

A large and diverse group consisting of people from Russia, Ukraine, Romania, France, Italy, US, Canada, Scotland, Hungary and Germany supported the most southern town of Iceland, Vik to maintain hiking paths and to beautify the area. The town is located between the breath taking Glacier Myrdalsjoküll and marvellous black sand beaches surrounded by rough cliffs where the participants could observe Puffins when the sun set. During the maintenance work at the hiking paths we enjoyed stunning views and relaxed afterwards in the local open air swimming pool. Having clearly identifiable hiking paths is crucial to protect the sensitive flora of Iceland. That is under ever more pressure through the increasing tourism, in particular in the area. In addition to the maintenance of the hiking paths we painted community building like the elderly home, the swimming pool, the sports field and the local museum. As reward for our excellence work we got invited to do zip lining in the local canyons and for a glacier walk on Myrdalsjoküll.
