10 of the most AMAZING Workaway experiences!

Earlier in the year we showed you ‘5 of the most fantastical Workaway destinations’ but since then we have had hundreds of new hosts join, so we just couldn’t help putting together a new list. These ones come from all over the globe, maybe some destinations you hadn’t even heard of, and definitely some experiences you didn’t know existed. Add them to your bucket list, add them to your to-do list, who are we kidding? Go and contact them right now.
