Volunteer in South America
Stretching from the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea to the cold coast of the infamous Cape Horn, South America is a continent with a mesmerising amount of variety along its ample length. From the incredible biodiversity of the steaming Amazon Rainforest to the wild craggy peaks of the Chilean Andes, the golden beaches of Brazil to the ice fields of the Southern Patagonian Icecap; South America’s amazing diversity will captivate anyone planning on volunteering abroad. With vibrant and diverse cultures, a thriving arts scene and scores of welcoming locals whom you can join to enjoy a spectacular football match or dance the night away during the carnaval (the annual festival season); South American everyday life is sure to thrill volunteers as much as the landscape.
South America's astonishing terrain is filled with big numbers and extremes, containing the world’s highest waterfall (Angel Falls), largest river by volume (the Amazon River), largest rainforest (the Amazon Rainforest), longest mountain range (the Andes), driest desert (Atacama Desert), most southernmost town (Puerto Toro in Chile) and highest capital city, railroad and commercially navigable lake. Volunteering in South America give volunteers ample opportunity to get to grips with the extreme scenery and incredible variety of wildlife and plant life it is home to.
