Croatia Volunteer in Croatia

"The 2 weeks I spent on the project were absolutely amazing and an experience that I will never forget. Everything was perfect: the group of volunteers, the organisation of the day-to-day activities, the days spent on or off the sea, and of course, our encounters with the dolphins!"

Jésabelle, Belgium

Dreamy golden coastlines with charming old-world buildings and emerald-green national parks where cascading waterfalls plunge into colour-changing waters: Croatia boasts some of the most incredible history and nature. A gem of a country, located in southeastern Europe, it is home to a blending pot of culture that has seen influence from Roman occupation right through to powers like that of the Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian empires.

The extensive natural wonders also make it the perfect place to view some beautiful species of mammals, birds and vegetation. If you come to volunteer in Croatia with us for example, you can take part in researching bottlenose dolphins in the Adriatic sea.  With some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, as noted by Alfred Hitchcock, and with a chance to see Dubrovnik, the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ as described by the poet Lord Byron, there are more reasons than can be listed to make Croatia your next volunteering destination.
