International volunteers will have the opportunity to get to know the traditional Icelandic farm life in a ranch that has life stock of more than 50 cows, 100 sheep, few hens and horses. The project takes place in an agricultural area in the North of Iceland which is rich in both culture and history. The volunteers will have the chance to get to know the local family and work hand in hand with them. The tasks will depend on the weather conditions, but will mainly involve outdoor work.
A big part of the project will take place in a nearby forest. Volunteers will plant trees, thin the forest, make and maintain hiking paths. Volunteers will have the opportunity to build from the material that comes out of the thinning process and make a small harbour in a nearby pond.
Volunteers who are interested in farming and/or animal husbandry will have the opportunity to carry out typical farming tasks such as fertilizing the fields, cutting grass, painting timber fences, tearing down old fences and possibly putting down potatoes and working around the animals.
The project starts in early summer and the days are already long so the clear air and bright light can create great conditions for photography or hiking.
Special requirements: Volunteers should have a motivation for working outdoors and getting to know the ways of living in rural areas in Iceland.
