Greece is a country whose rugged beauty is matched by the soft colours of coastal towns and eclipsed by and abundance of life and light. Located in southeastern Europe, it is comprised not just of a mountainous mainland, but also of thousands of charmingly romantic islands. It is known to have been the very centre of western civilisation and after a brief moment of viewing the magnificent ruins of old-world glory set against the breathtaking landscape of blue-tinged mountains, you’ll be in no doubt as to why.
On the border of three continents, a kaleidoscope of culture indicative of its role in multiple grand civilisations, this country is truly a reflection of both old-world wonder and modern day life. All of this is set amidst spectacular landscapes from dense olive groves and lush plains to ancient volcanoes and rocky hills. Flourishing across these terrains is an array of wildlife which draws nature lovers and volunteers from all around the world. As a volunteer in Greece, you can help to protect sea turtles and contribute to dolphin research every summer.
