Your Portugal adventure
When volunteering in Portugal you will be based at a world recognised wolf sanctuary or at an animal sanctuary, both located 30-60 minutes outside of the capital, Lisbon. You will be surrounded by miles of rolling hills and lush green forests - providing you the best views ever.
This is your chance to enjoy the tranquil and remote surroundings, but also have the connivence of being able to easily arrange transport into the capital and to other nearby tourist attractions, including Sintra, Ericeira, Mafra and Óbidos.
Portugal is once again emerging into the spotlight and is becoming one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. Portugal has it all; centuries old historic cities, world-renowned cuisine, natural and vast landscapes and some of the worlds most spectacular beaches - do you need anymore reasons to visit?
You'll spend your days out in the wilderness of the central Portugal, where you will be able to actively contribute to the well-being of many animals that call the sanctuaries home as well as participate in a wide range of conservation activities.
Our structured and safe programmes makes volunteering in Portugal ideal for first time and / or solo travellers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Portugal as a group.
