Logged in as admin then used:

sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc

ExcludeNodes {us},{de},{fr} ExcludeExitNodes {us},{au},{ca},{nz},{gb},{fr}


sudo systemctl restart tor

This works for the current session ONLY but does not save once rebooted.

Is it possible to have the torrc saved in persistent?

As tails is intended to leave no traces, in general everything is deleted.

You may save your torrc in ~/Persistent/ and start tor manually with -f FILE or use the tails-persistence-setup tool.
