Renovating volunteer houses & chasing the Aurora in Iceland

Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, QC H0H0H0(View Map)


In this project, volunteers will take up different tasks related to the renovation and maintenance of volunteer houses in the East of Iceland. The work depends on each volunteer's skills and knowledge, but focuses mainly 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 in Iceland means Aurora Hunting. 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 on the lookout for Aurora Borealis at night throughout the whole project, so that you will have the opportunity to take photos of this amazing and unique phenomenon. It is very important to bring your camera with you (only cameras that work in long exposure will catch those lights), so don’t forget your tripod and camera. You can also bring your laptop, as it can come in handy.

We will also concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening volunteers from different countries will cook for the rest of the group and will be in charge of presenting their country and culture in an informal way. It can be a presentation, a game, theater - the form of introduction is up to you. Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, photos, or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening with the other volunteers.

This project gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning. If the weather conditions are good, we can also do some environmental work.
