The Farm

Story of this place

The house is located 20 minutes by car from City Hall in the outskirts of Reykjavik. It is a nice cozy place on top of the hill with a nice view. The house can host up to 10 people. We usually use this house as a “transit house” When Camp Leaders & Volunteers  first arrived before departing to their camp. This is also where you will receive your training. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, 2 toilets, 1 Bathroom, living room, 3 dormitories, within the premises a Greenhouse and a tool room.


Volunteers will have environmental tasks in different areas in and around the house, for example cleaning the coastline, planting trees, taking down old fences, removing lupines or other plants and fixing hiking paths, or working on the greenhouse Our work will also depend on weather conditions, which is why we have to be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, but hopefully, the weather will be nice most of the time. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. Working hours are about 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Leisure Time

The house is located near a great hiking area. You can either go to the nearest lake which is called Hafravatn. You can also hike the Meistaramánudagur mountain. These hikes take approx. 1 hour. Going for a swim in the local swimming pool is so relaxing. Keep in mind entrance to the pool is not included. Going to the picturesque city of Reykjavik is always fun as well. WF Iceland will also organize reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer.

Accomodation and Food

Worldwide Friends volunteers stay in a community building offering basic sleeping and cooking facilities. Volunteers need to bring their own sleeping bag and towels, but mattresses and bed linens are provided. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. The accommodation is located within short walking distance of many urban amenities, including banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, public swimming pools, restaurants, cafes, libraries, theatres, shops, museums, and bus stations.

Additional Information
