The Experience

We need general help around the lodge like managing the veggie garden, picking blueberries, milking & herding goats, taking photos and helping guests. If you decide to be a volunteer here, you`ll live in a 17.5 hectare Holistic Nature Retreat, situated in the Serra da Estrela Natural Park. You will soon be immersed in the beautiful natural surroundings with mountain views. On a clear night you can even see the Milky Way!

About the host

We have recently become guardians of 22 hectares of land which is registered as a Nature Reserve in the Serra da Estrela Natural Park. We are creating a retreat for other people to enjoy being in nature and to transform their lives through Energy Medicine. We need help looking after the land and creating outdoor spaces for visitors.
