To truly sense the remote beauty of the north-east, then the charming little fishing village of Þórshöfn on the north-east coast is the place to go. There's a variety of outdoor activity on offer, from hiking to salmon and trout fishing, and horse trekking in some of Iceland's most spectacular scenery. The Langanes Peninsula is also one of the best areas in which to enjoy Iceland's rich and varied birdlife. Þórshöfn is within driving distance of some Iceland's most prized natural pearls, such as Myvatn, with its geothermal activity, and the waterfall Dettifoss, one of Europe's most powerful and spectacular waterfalls. This village has a good, natural harbour and the inhabitants base their livelihood on fishing, fish processing and commerce.
The volunteer group will be working on cleaning up the shores and beaches in the area.
