Pas als het zeker is dat je ook daadwerkelijk naar de plaats van bestemming kan afreizen, doe je de betaling aan SIW. Niet eerder!

SEEDS volunteers will help with various tasks, such as maintenance work in the artwork garden; some of the group may help with painting the artist’s workshop and some work in and around the chapel. Depending on the projects’ needs we may also help in maintaining a walking path from the sculpture garden towards a small canyon where some outdoor artwork can be found and help with setting up and moving the artwork, taking down old fences, hand-picking trash and generally beautifying the surroundings. The working day normally runs from 9:00 am to 17:00 (5:00 pm), with breaks for lunch and coffee. No previous experience is necessary but the work is demanding and requires a good physical condition; it can at times be repetitive but always rewarding. As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as, depending on the weather, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks or activities planned. The working plan will depend on the needs of our local host, the progress of the diverse projects in the area and of course on the weather conditions.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

SEEDS volunteers will stay in a local house; sleeping in shared rooms on mattresses in a sleeping bag accommodation. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food ingredients and will be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Do not forget to bring some traditional/typical food, drinks, music and recipes from your country for the intercultural evening.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The project takes place in the western part of Iceland, in a unique natural environment with breathtaking landscape, between glaciers and lava fields. The place is like an oasis in the desert, as the weather there is often better than in the surroundings. Among the natural wonders nearby are the Hraunfossar waterfalls, where water pours out of a lava field over a length of 1 km. Additionally, the Hallmundarhraun lava field is among the deepest and best known in Iceland. Langjökull (Long Glacier), the second largest glacier in Iceland, expands over 950 km² and its highest point is 1355 m above sea level. In addition to natural wonders this area is also famous for being one of the first settled locations in Iceland and featured in some of the oldest Icelandic sagas.


Participation fee EUR 300 (Euros). Please note that the fee can either be transferred in advance via bank transfer, or paid for on arrival. The participation fee does not include the transportation from Reykjavík to the camp and back, which will cost EUR 30 one way or EUR 60 both ways. Volunteers need to be motivated to work outdoors on physical jobs and in changeable weather. Bring warm winter clothes, under layers, waterproofs, walking shoes/boots, a good sleeping bag, hat, scarves and gloves. English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.


This work camp takes place in a remote region, in a natural area of extreme beauty. Our hosts will organise some free-time activities, for instance hikes or visits to the beautiful surroundings. Other excursions (e.g. Golden Circle or Snæfellsnes Peninsula) can be organised at discount fares for SEEDS volunteers.
