Summary

Community Impact in Peru

Get stuck into work refurbishing primary school facilities. Build greenhouses, plant seeds and saplings, and carry out workshops on healthy eating for the local children.

Peru is an iconic and fascinating country that remains one of the most popular destinations in the world for adventure travellers. With so many natural and cultural treasures, and rewarding  community projects, this colourful and exotic part of the world is the perfect place to volunteer with us.

Our trips offer you the unique chance to live and work as part of the community in three distinct  high sierra regions of Peru: Colca, Moray and Titicaca. You’ll help local adults and children improve their quality of life in a sustainable way and immerse yourself in this amazing culture.

Trek for a few hours to Cruz del Condor to take in the unbelievable scenery and spot the world's largest flying bird, the condor, soaring above you. The vibrant bustling cities of Cusco and Arequipa are yours to explore. A visit to the markets to pick up some Peruvian handicrafts is a must, as is sampling some traditional Pisco Sours. The 4 day trek to Machu Picchu is a once in a lifetime adventure. You'll trek the Salkantay Trail to the amazing World Heritage Site! There's also a visit the man made floating islands of Uros, a vibrant community living on islands made purely of reeds.
