Best Volunteer Opportunities in Greece
"I spent 2 weeks volunteering on the islands of Kalamos and Kastos in Greece. The programme itself was fairly relaxed, we did Posidonia monitoring, gardening as well as camera and audio traps for bats, birds and monk seals. We applied to the programme only a few weeks before and the team were very efficient in getting everything organised in time!"
Weekend Travel Options
Almost all of our participants are very active in their free time and use the weekends to travel. The local on site team in Greece have plenty of tips for you on worthwhile destinations and are happy to advise you on organizational issues, such as public transport.In Greece you might have the option to leave the island to explore the villages on the mainland or our team can help to organize some snorkeling. After completing the program you can keep a few days to explore the other locations in Greece. Some of the recommended options are given below.
Kefalonia is an island in the Ionian Sea west of the mainland. Kefalonia is known for its green mountains, beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters. Carrying a rich history in cultural tradition, it is the biggest of all of the Ionian Islands. Famous for its cuisine, traditional villages, pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife, the island really does have something for everyone.
The Acropolis – Athens
The Acropolis in Athens is the most famous city fortress in ancient Greece and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex is impressively enthroned on the highest elevation near the city. The word Acropolis comes from ancient Greek and means something like "Hochstadt" or "Oberstadt". The landmark of Athens on the limestone cliff above the city center is the most famous building in the Greek capital.
Crete is the largest Greek island and, together with Cyprus, the sunniest island in the Mediterranean. The paradise island seduces you with 300 hours of sunshine a year and invites you to a beach holiday. But it is also worthwhile to put the numerous cultural sights on the to do list. Probably the most important one at the top: The Palace of Knossos, closely followed by the Arkadi Monastery near Rethymnon and the Archaeological Museum Heraklion.
