Hornstrandir nature reserve is found in the very north-west of Iceland and has been an uninhabited area for 60 years.

The area is made up of innumerable fjords, bays and coves separated by razor sharp steep mountains and tall vertical cliffs and due to this and its position the areas ecosystem swings regularly between extremes of weather. It is a challenging but rewarding and unique environment in which to work, with very steep almost vertical hikes to be made to the observation stations in often windy (25+ m/sec) wet, foggy and cold conditions, on the way up, then sunny, calm and warm on the way down, or vise versa, and to this end our volunteers should have good experience in outdoor life and recreation and fitness levels to match.
