Help us clean the rugged and remote northeastern coastline. This tour takes guests on a 2-hour walk on a black beach dotted with fishing gear, ropes, plastic, the random shoe and maybe a treasure -- you never know! Together, we can prevent a carload of trash from hurting wildlife and making its way back to sea.

The tour begins at the N1 gas station in Húsavík, from where the group will carpool to the nearby beach. I will drive a pickup to collect everything we pick up and provide guests with garbage bags and gloves. Guests don't have to take care of any preparation beyond dressing appropriately.

Access and distance to a given beach vary but generally, I expect transport and walk from the parking spot to take about 40 minutes.

In my view, we will be visiting a very neglected and overlooked part of Iceland, a place which has the ultimate feeling of remoteness; beyond the coast is the Iceland Sea, the Greenland Sea, the Arctic Ocean, and eventually the North Pole. No wonder these beaches are the first stop for litter, coming from as far as Siberia.

After a job well done, we sit down with a hot drink and an afternoon snack.

My hope is that people leave the tour proud to have taken an afternoon of their vacation to help the environment and a little more aware of the challenges facing the North Atlantic.
Other things to note
Appropriate clothes. The beach can be windy and the activity takes 3.5 hours in total

My favorite part of the world is the Ocean. And as a sailor moonlighting in journalism and academic research, I've both experienced and covered the enormous waste floating in the North Atlantic. Near my home in northeastern Iceland, on the long and remote coastline, I've come across old fishing gear, countless plastic bottles, ropes, and sharp objects -- all things that pollute the ocean and hurt wildlife. By trying my hand as a local guide for the second time in my carrier -- I lead whale watching trips for many summers -- I hope to both show people a wonderful part of Iceland and give people the opportunity to help us keep it that way.

Kur būsite

For each tour, I will select a part of the Tjörnes Peninsula in need of our team effort. We head there together, initially meeting at the N1 Gas Station parking lot in Húsavík.

The beaches are black and rocky, with birds living on cliffs and skerries. Northeastern Iceland, in fact, is one of the best places in Iceland to observe seabirds. keep
