"If I am completely honest, this project has given me some of the best months of my life that will be in my head and my heart forever. As I stated in my application, for me it has been always a dream to go to Iceland, and been able to go with such a reason as doing reforestation work made that even more incredible."

"This had been a truly amazing summer for me, thanks to it gained new friendships, experiences and skills. And I will always keep little farm of Ulfljotsvatn in my heart as a second home :)"

"In the course of the project we had the chance to grow a lot. On a personal level as well in the field we were working in. It is a safe and convenient way to volunteer. To volunteer is a beautiful way to get to know a place and it’s culture on not only a surface level."
