Volunteer in Iceland

Volunteer and Work/ Trade Opportunities in Iceland

Volunteering for room and board is a common arrangement in Iceland. Travelers all across the country are living free by working for a handful of hours per day on ranches, farms, and doing environmental conservation work. Volunteer arrangements can be set up in advance or while in the country, depending on the type of program you’re looking for.

One of the best volunteer gigs that I found out about when in Iceland is through the department of conservation. I met one of their groups working on a trail leading up to the Eldborg volcano, and they told me they work for three months in the summer and get sent to various locations around the country doing various conservation and outdoor rec projects. Read more about the Iceland Conservation Volunteers on the travelogue.
