Anonymous asked: Hello. Im Handy Gui. An 18 year old girl . I was wondering where i can get a volunteer work in Iceland? :)
There are a few options. Some of them depend on where you come from. The only one I have personal experience with is SEEDS. They are volunteers for the Icelandic Environmental department. They do all sorts of work, but mostly lay and maintain hiking paths in the national parks.
I’ve lived right next to the SEEDS volunteers which are working in the Skaftafell national park and met some of them. Despite doing some pretty hard work, I think they are quite happy. They get some days off every now and when, during which they have free access to an apartment in Reykjavík. They also get some minor weekly allowance which they say is enough for their booze.
A quick google search also turns up Worldwide Friends, which seems to be doing something similar. However, I known nothing about it.
