What’s the story?

BUYMEICELAND is very passionate about green energy and taking care of our planet. We got a beautiful piece of land near the roots of the volcano Hekla and decided to divide it up into 1 square foot/30x30cm squares and give people around the world the chance to own a part of one of the most beautiful and magical places on Earth and at the same time plant trees.

We want to offer everybody that love Iceland to own a piece of it and plant trees in the process. It does not hurt that land owners can officially call themselves Vikings!

where is the land?

BUYMEICELAND estates spread all over Iceland but the current available certificates are for plots on land at the roots of the famous volcano Hekla. Hekla is located in the highly active volcanic zone along the south shore and is the most active volcano in Iceland with more than 20 eruptions since 874. The volcano is part of a volcanic ridge, 40 km (25 mi) long. The most active part of this ridge is a fissure about 5.5 km (3.4 mi) long named Heklugja. The volcano resembles an overturned boat, its keel a series of craters, two of which are generally the most active. 

The area around Hekla was once forested. Forest and some grasses are much more resilient to ash and pumice fall than low vegetation. However the combined effect of human habitation and the volcanic activity has left an unstable surface very susceptible to erosion. The Hekluskógar reforestation project is working to restore the previously present birch and willow woodland to the slopes of the mountain. This would stabilize the large areas of volcanic ash and help to reduce erosion. It is the largest reforestation of its type in Europe.

plant trees

Planting trees can increase the resilience of ecosystems, help minimize climate change effects and buy people and governments time to adapt to changing conditions. We aim to be one of the biggest supporter of the National Forest Organisation in the years to come.
