In the lower section of the reserve called Hagi lies the famous Paskahellir (Easter Cave), a rock vault over the shore. Holes left by thick, 10 to 12-million-year-old tree trunks can be seen inside the vault and, in true Icelandic spirit, various folk tales are associated with the cave.

This camp has different kind of tasks. The work will be divided in two basic fields: Environmental and Cultural. We will help the organizers in the Youth Arts Festival “Fire in Hunaþing” during 4 days from 25th to the 28th of July preparing the event and helping them with some practical work during the festival. Other days we will clean the coastline and/or plant trees in the area. We will give a special focus on global warming and the volunteers will have workshops about climate changes. The issue of global warming is well known all over the world. The humanity must act in a more environmentally friendly way. The main goal of this project is to improve the environmental education and consciousness of the projects’ participants. Within the project we will learn about green energy, sustainable householding, waste treatment, nutrition, the effects of consumption and lots more. If you want to change something, develop solutions or inspire others, you have to understand the issues and tasks first. In addition to the theoretical part we are going to practice sustainable work. For example, planting trees is one of the main exercises of the camps. Planting trees becomes a very useful action against climate change because trees absorb carbon dioxide, clean the air and prevent erosions. Take part in this promising project and spring into action against climate change! This work camp is a way to enjoy an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while they are exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning.
North-west Iceland offers a huge spectrum of scenery to explore, from the rough coastline to the highlands. Most of the communities are at sheltered coastal sites and really come into their own in summer, when the midnight sun is at its most glorious. Spring, when the sun melts the snow and the land takes on the green of summer, is a time of renewal, travel and being outdoors. Some people go walking into the highlands to view mountains, swimming or fishing, hunting, riding horses, or adventurous trips on the sea, lakes or rivers, waterfalls, glacial rivers, volcanic craters. There are many places of interest in northwest Iceland. From Brú in the west to Siglufjörður in the east, this sparsely populated part of Iceland covers three districts and one eighth of the country in terms of square kilometres, but the population is only about ten thousand. Inhabited areas include farms, towns and small villages. From a geological point of view northwest Iceland, like the rest of country, is still in its childhood. The landscape varies enormously: mountains, fields, lakes, rivers, marshes, and lava fields. Hvammstangi is the most densely populated area in the west Húnaþing County. It is a service centre for the surrounding neighbourhood and also a school site and an administrative centre (Bank, Post Office, Health Institute). It has a population of 600 people. The village has a good harbour and fishing, agriculture along with tourism are the main industry in the area. The cultural life in Hvammstangi is very diverse it offers choirs, a drama society, the Kormákur sports society, a community centre for young people. From Hvammstangi is only a short travel to Vatnsnes with a wealth of varied historical sites, beautiful scenery, great views of the mountains at Strandir and last but not least a seal habitat within easy walking distance.
WF Iceland will organize reasonably priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights, such as waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents or even icebergs. The area around the place is also great for hiking. We will also concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, volunteers from different countries will be in charge of presenting their country of origin and culture in an informal way. It can be a presentation, a game, theater – the form of introduction is up to you! Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, photos or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening amongst other volunteers.
