The Experience

Volunteering at La Danesa will give you the opportunity to enjoy unlimited horseback riding, bikes, kayaks, rivers and everything that nature has to offer. Your main task will be to create digital content (photographs, videos, etc.) for our website and social media. The staff is all local and AMAZING. This is a 500 hectares farm and there is heaps of space to explore and disconnect from your life back home. Did I mention we have a great chef?
