Project Location:  Scoured by Ice Age glaciers, the dramatic east coast boasts long, narrow fjords with steep sides and jagged peaks which contrast with inland fertile farmlands. Natural harbors mean picture-postcard fishing villages and seemingly never-ending roads cross the region, providing beautiful sweeping views.

“Fjarðabyggð” is an association of villages in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. It includes the towns of Eskifjörður, Fáskrúðsfjörður, Mjóifjörður, Neskaupstaður, Reyðarfjörður and Stöðvarfjörður, all tiny fishing villages with steep mountains towering just behind the houses. In this area you will see some of the features that make Iceland a unique place in the world: spectacular fjords with a rich sea life, a great variety of birdlife, and countless breathtaking hiking paths. You will explore the area during your stay in the east.

Work:  Our teenager’s camp aim is to provide fun and educative time for the young participants. During the 12 days program participants will have the chance to get to know Icelandic nature, history and people. The Team leaders of these camps will be trained on how lead teens of this age and oriented them into how to be a part of the daily community life in a camp. The young volunteers will follow a program which is a mixture of environmental voluntary work and games. We will also go for hikes to discover the fantastic landscapes in the East of Iceland. The volunteers will also help with renovation and environmental work in the area. Since the the camps is located in the east of Iceland our young volunteer will have the opportunity to enjoy a round tour around Iceland with the extra fee for bus ride of 150 euro for both ways.

Leisure: We will hike a lot in the area and enjoy the nature while doing so. We will play different kind of sports together will local teenagers. We will also fish near to the harbor.

There is a free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pools in the area. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Most Icelandic pools offer indoor and outdoor swimming, as well as hot tubs and saunas or steam rooms.

Accommodation and Food:  We will stay in a fully equipped house in the village of Stöðvarfjörður. Beds will be provided and everyone is asked to bring his/her own warm sleeping bag. Wi-Fi Internet connection is available.

Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favorite recipes from home!

Before and after the camp: We have a person which is responsible for the teenagers if they are staying with us in Reykjavik. We can also offer them full board for 10 euro per day.

Language:  A basic knowledge of English is required for this workcamp.

Terminal: Intl. Airport: Keflavík (KEF), Reykjavík. The closest national airport to the camp site is Egilsstaðir airport which is 40 km away from the project’s site.

Pickup and Bring back service at Keflavik airport: We can offer a  pickup service at Keflavik airport for 25 euro each. Please send us an email to bookings@wf.is with the date and flight number and we will confirm the pickup.

Flights arrive at Keflavik International Airport (KEF), just south of Reykjavik. WF Iceland will offer a minibus trip from Reykjavik to Stöðvarfjörður for a fair price (150 € for the round trip which is almost 1.400 km in total). On the way to the camp we will  go through the South to the East of the island. After the camp we will go through the North and west to Reykjavik. This trip includes unique Icelandic sights such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava fields, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents, or even icebergs.
