I am looking for a program to go through for international volunteering this summer. Do you know of any reliable programs?

Hi Katie,

Not sure when you sent this; I’ve been without internet for a while so I’m sorry if this is quite late.

If you’re looking for a summer program, I can’t say enough good things about Iceland Conservation Volunteers. You go to Iceland for 3 months, traveling around to some isolated areas building and maintaining hiking paths and such. It’s such a beautiful place. The only thing you’re expected to pay for is your plane ticket to Reykjavík.

Here’s the website: http://icv.is

And here’s a blog post I did on ICV a while back: http://spartanwanderer.com/2012/09/19/iceland-debriefing/

Let me know if you have any questions!
