Who knew paradise was so
close to home?

Unspoilt beaches, crystal-clear waters & rugged green landscapes

Our projects are based in Kefalonia, the largest of the islands in the Ionian Sea just west of Greece. We are currently monitoring and collecting research data on sea turtles in two coastal towns; Argostoli and Lixouri as well as collecting data on the marine and coastal ecosystems in Skala and Mounda.

If you want to volunteer a little closer to home, but still want to experience a breath-taking destination, then Kefalonia is the place to visit. This charming island boasts impressive limestone cliffs, rugged green landscapes and long stretches of unspoilt sandy beaches. 

Relatively untouched by tourism, this picture-perfect paradise is the ideal place to explore. You can take a canoe into the 300 year old Melissani Caves, climb the towering Mount Ainos or just relax at one of the many beautiful beaches.

Our programmes start on Sunday (Argostoli), Tuesday (Lixouri) and Thursday (marine conservation) most weeks between May and September and you can choose to join us from 2-4 weeks.

Our structured and safe programmes makes volunteering in Greece ideal for first time and / or solo travellers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Greece as a group.

What's included
  • Accommodation, transport and 24-hour airport pickup
  • 24/7 in-country & UK support
  • Pre-departure buddy lists and a dedicated Greece Facebook group to talk with other volunteers
  • Assistance with all aspects of your trip and comprehensive pre-departure information
