    If you love exploring forests and mountains, have strong DIY skills, and enjoy meeting new people, this might be the Workaway opportunity for you. While tourism in Armenia is at a low point, we're looking to the future – and so our mission is to build a community hub for hikers and outdoor lovers in the heart of Dilijan National Park, ready to open in the spring of 2021.
    With our first guests arriving at the end of May, we are looking for the month of April and May to be devoted to helping with final renovations and some fun DIY projects. During this final push to get the doors open, you will have a bed available along with use of the hostel before any guests arrive. The space will be shared with another volunteer and the two young women who will be running the hostel for the season (from time to time) but more than likely, you will have a room to yourself during this time.

    From May until the end of the summer there will also be an opp You'll be living privately in the hostel while you're volunteering for us, and it won't be open to the public during your stay. Our future goal is that guests, members and local partners will help maintain the hiking trail network, either by generating funds by staying with us, or joining work crews on the trails themselves. We are co-founders of the Transcaucasian Trail, a long-distance trail network being built across the Caucasus, and this will be the first dedicated hikers' hostel on the trail. Join us!

    You’ll be based in the heart of Dilijan’s old town, within easy reach of the National Park’s extensive network of trails, making this a perfect base for exploring northern Armenia and spending time in some of the best mountain and forest wildernesses in the country. We have strong ties to many local businesses and entrepreneurs and can connect you with almost any opportunity you might imagine.

    With our first guests arriving at the end of May, we are looking for the month of April and May to be devoted to helping with final renovations and some fun DIY projects. During this final push to get the doors open, you will have a bed available along with use of the hostel before any guests arrive. The space will be shared with another volunteer and the two young women who will be running the hostel for the season (from time to time) but more than likely, you will have a room to yourself during this time.

    This project will involve a wide variety of practical and creative work – renovation, construction, decoration, upcycling old furniture, creating furnishings from discarded and donated materials, and creating a friendly and warm atmosphere for hikers by whatever means we can think of! Examples include plastering and painting interior and exterior spaces, DIY and carpentry projects to create communal spaces for relaxation, maintaining and improving paths around the property, weeding and planting garden areas, processing firewood, and improving the exterior appearance of the property using donated and found materials. We will expect each volunteer to contribute 25 hours a week on a flexible weekly timetable, and we’re looking for people who can commit to a stay of at least one month. We will strongly encourage you to go hiking in the area as often as possible so that you can share your experiences with other volunteers.

    Between the months of June until the end of September (potentially October), we will be looking for a volunteer to help run the facility. Expected hours for volunteering will be 25 hours a week, either completed in the morning/early afternoon so that you can get out on the trails and enjoy the long summer days. Duties will include cleaning, organizing, and checking-in/checking-out guests on a need basis. For the busiest days, you will be working alongside someone from our team so you wouldn't be asked to take on more than one person could handle.

    We have private sleeping spaces for two volunteers in bunk-beds in the future hostel dormitory. You’ll have the private use all of the communal facilities at the hostel while it remains closed to the public, and you’ll also have access to a storage room and workshop with a large range of tools.

    During the time in which the hostel is open and accepting guests, you will have access to a beautiful bell tent, fitted to your needs where you can enjoy some peace and quiet in the outdoors right near the hostel.
