“A Village at the Edge of the Arctic” – Raufarhofn, Iceland

I had the privilege of visiting here at the start of June. We saw Arctic-Henge, met the man behind the idea, and stayed with Maddy (who is interviewed in the film). I counted no less than 7 species of sea/shore birds in her back yard. Including the Common Eider (this was very exciting as a birder, when would I ever see one in Canada?) Enjoy!

“We are proud to present the teaser from the documentary movie we have been filming recently in Raufarhofn!

Documentary project about the impact of international volunteering in isolated rural areas in the northeastern part of Iceland. The Documentary film take place in the village of Raufarhofn with the cooperation of Worldwidefriends Iceland volunteers and The Tracker Company.

The intention of this project is to let the world know about this situation and therefore to promote the beauty and the wonders of these people and their village.

This is a non profit project.” www.wf.is
