Peruvian Amazon

This expedition will take you deep into the Peruvian jungle and the Amazon basin to explore the unique biodiversity of the area.

By day, you’ll trek through the jungle, take part in scientific fieldwork focused on conservation and sustainability, and document your experience through creative media projects. By night, you’ll fall asleep to a chorus of rare wildlife, including monkeys, birds, snakes and a huge array of reptiles.

All of our expeditions are designed to take you out of your comfort zone (there will be bugs as well as butterflies), but they are led by experts with an awe-inspiring level of knowledge – and a 100% commitment to keeping you safe.

The vast majority of young people return with a wealth of new-found practical skills, new friends-for-life and a real sense of personal development – all of which can have tangible benefits for the future.
