About

 Iceland is a place of amazement for volunteers of all backgrounds. Iceland’s geography is both unique and formidable, with the fault line that the nation rests on gradually widening – resulting in volcanic activity and earthquakes up and down the divide. Bright summer nights, and the mystic and beautiful Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) in winter grace volunteers with wonder. 11% of the country is covered by glaciers, including Vatnajökull, the largest in Europe. Icelandic sagas from the 13th century provide a historical record for the country, one of the smallest in terms of population with only 310,000 inhabitants. As a volunteer in Iceland, you may be surprised to find somewhat mild temperatures throughout the year, thanks to the ocean gulfstream. United Planet is the US and Canadian partner of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in Iceland, you will be hosted by AUS, ICYE’s Icelandic partner organization. AUS has been organizing home stays and volunteer projects in Iceland for more than fifty years in an effort to promote experiential learning.
