This project 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.
In this project, volunteers will develop different tasks related to the renovation and maintenance of a volunteer center in the East of Iceland. The work will depend on each volunteer's skills and knowledge and will focus on tasks such as painting, cleaning, fixing small things and basic carpentry and construction. This project is very important for the future volunteer programs in the East.
In addition to this work, winter time means Aurora Hunting in Iceland. If you like photography, the Northern Lights and sharing an amazing time with friends from all over the world, this project is perfect for you. We will be checking out regularly during the nights if Aurora borealis is happening and we will prepare ourselves for taking photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to have your cameras with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights) so don't forget your tripod and camera. A laptop could be very useful as well. We will be able to offer you a small workshop on night scenery photography.
We will also concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, a different country will cook for the rest of the group and will be in charge of presenting their country and culture in a non-formal way. It could be a presentation, games, theater or however you would like to show it. Therefore we recommend you to bring food, photos or whatever you think is important and nice for the intercultural evenings.

Location: Scoured by Ice Age glaciers, the dramatic east coast boasts long, narrow fjords with steep sides and jagged peaks which contrast with inland fertile farmlands. Natural harbours mean picture perfect fishing villages and seemingly never-ending roads cross the region, providing beautiful sweeping views. This is one of the best places in Iceland to see the Northern lights.
