Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 450.

During the workcamp we will be cleaning the coastline along the road 870 which goes around Melrakkasletta. Every day that we clean the coastline we will document the process by weighing the garbage we find as well as measure the meters and square meters of the coastline we cleaned. On days with poor weather conditions, we will be sorting and cleaning the things we find with the goal of reusing and recycling. The municipality of Nordurthing where Raufahöfn resides might ask us to help with different tasks related to the environment. This could happen with short notice so plans might change suddenly, it’s always good to switch things up a bit. Our work will depend on weather conditions and that’s why we have to be flexible. Please keep in mind that the work might be physically hard, and you should be prepared for unfriendly weather. This is a perfect camp for people who like outdoor work and physical challenges. We will be doing workshops together every now and then about global warming and sustainability. If you have ideas for workshops that you would like to do yourself then that is always welcome.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Worldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in the WF house in Raufarhöfn. The house is almost 450 m2 with several dormitories, two big living rooms, fully equipped kitchen, three showers and three toilets. Beds are provided; however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags or borrow one from WF if they don’t want to bring it. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge. 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 from home! Please keep in mind that usually we have around 10 to 15 international volunteers in the house at the same time

Locatie en vrije tijd

Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermal-heated swimming pool in the village. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Some leisure activities will be organized by the local community. The area around the village is also good for hiking so please bring your hiking shoes. An optional excursion to the myvatn area with green lagoon - this excursion costs 100 euros
