Iceland is a magnificent display of some of nature’s purest beauty. It is an island nation characterised by an arctic desert that is punctuated by mountains, glaciers, geysers, hot springs, volcanoes and waterfalls. Layered lava masses and some extensive grasslands, bogs and marshes also colour the landscape. The country’s interesting history means culture is a blend of age-old tradition and modern elements, all shrouded in an overwhelming connection with the mystical. In fact, some of the natural phenomena may just make some of the strongest sceptics waver.
The wildlife of the country is varied and adapted to the difficult terrain. Across the country you can find towering cliffs, a-flurry with a variety of bird species; wide glaciers hiding the earliest inhabitants, arctic foxes, and rough waters thriving with whales and seals. If you join us to volunteer in Iceland, the expansive, colossal and crisply clean natural wonders will make you feel as if you have been dropped at the end of the world.
