I am so grateful that I got the chance to visit Iceland as my first Worldpackers experience. Seltjarnarnes is truly an amazing place; there is plenty of wonderful walking spots, lovely views of sunrises, sunsets and the northern lights, moreover, Reykjavik is easily reachable by the public bus in only 15 minutes. During my stay I learned a lot, not only related to the daily tasks around the house, but also about myself and environment. It was so hard to leave at the end. I dare to say that the guest house was my home for a month and I would for sure return if there is a chance :)

Being in the guest house was an amazing experience, totally recommended. Once you get here, you become instantly an active part of the team. The tasks are well explained and the people here are very welcoming. You get the chance to take part in a variety of activities in the house and you also have time to explore. It was an awesome learning opportunity, combined with beautiful Auroras dancing in the sky over the guest house.

This is a lovely experience. You can see northern lights right from the doorstep and can go hike in gorgeous areas. Also I advise to go to the amazing lava show and Perlan museum. Main tasks are setting up breakfast, answering emails and on weekends cleaning the apartments. You'll work together with an intern. You will also do light maintenance work. In summary it's an amaizing experience and I'd love to come back sometime.
