IJsland | Natuur en constructie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een natuur en constructieproject.
Het project duurt van 1 t/m 14 augustus.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 250.
Volunteers will have environmental tasks in different areas in and around Vogar, for example cleaning the coastline, planting trees, taking down old fences, removing lupines or other plants and fixing hiking paths. 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.
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.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 favourite recipes (and spices) from home
Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pool in Vogar. 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.WF Iceland will also organise 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 glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, geysers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents, or even icebergs.
The village of Vogar lies on the north coast of the Reykjanes peninsula midway between Reykjavik and Keflavik Int. airport. It has a population of around 1.000 inhabitants. The area is a paradise for nature lovers and there you can find amazing rock formation, lagoons, extreme black beaches and very rough coastline. The birdlife is very rich, and you can find birds like ducks, waterfowl, seabirds and even eiders.
