Top 3 Reasons To Volunteer Abroad in Iceland

1. Environmental Diversity. Iceland’s diverse landscapes and environments provide the ideal volunteer opportunity for environmentalists. The town of Hveragerðiis for example, is on top of an active geothermal field which is responsible for the many flourishing agricultural greenhouses in the otherwise chilly climate.

2. Sustainability. Iceland is said to be one of the world’s most sustainable nations, with a large percentage of its energy coming from renewable sources. What could possibly be a better place to volunteer for environmental conservation and agriculture than in a country that is a leader in sustainability? 

3. Culture. Hospitality is valued in Icelandic society, which helps international volunteers integrate easily into their new surroundings and allows for rewarding cultural exchanges.
