POSTPONED UNTIL 14th-20th of July 2021!

These are difficult times for everyone around the world, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to develop.
We had been hoping that it wouldn’t come to this, but sadly, we have decided that we need to postpone this year’s National Jamboree until 2021. Our number one priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone at the Jamboree.

Information still needs to be updated on the website.

Hamrar Scout Center

Hamrar Scout Centre is a beautiful campsite located in the northen part of Iceland. It’s a peaceful and friendly place surrounded by the forest Kjarnaskógur on the outskirts of Akureyri, capital of the north. The campsite is well equipped with excellent facilities, playgrounds and great hiking trails. The area has amazing opportunities for all kinds of activites, which is why it’s perfect for the Icelandic national Scout Jamboree. Many successful Jamborees have been held there before, and we’re excited to spend a week there together in a society that we’ll create for ourselves.

Jamboree site

On the jamboree,  the camp site will be divided into 4 areas where the themes are the four elements : Fire, Water, Earth and Air


Fire and Water are participants’ camps, where the groups will set up their tents and decorate in the area theme whether it is water or fire (blue and orange on the map).


Earth is divided into two program areas within the jamboree site. One where open activites will be available and another where the activity-villages will be. Other programs and activites take place outside the area. (Green on the map).


Air is the family camps (gray on the map).
