Join us on this adventure as we discover the best of Peru and Ecuador! Majestic volcanos, breathtaking islands, and quaint villages await you as you experience natural beauty paired with meaningful service work with local communities.
Peru and Ecuador are two countries in South America rich in history, culture, and natural beauty. Join us on this 22-day service trip as we discover what makes each country so vibrant and unique!
In addition to exploring majestic volcanos, gorgeous islands, sacred sites, and vibrant markets, we will visit the jewels of each country as we take in the splendor of sacred Machu Picchu and view the world-famous wildlife of the Galápagos Islands.
We will also have the opportunity to volunteer and give back to several communities throughout our adventures for a total of 40 hours of community service. In Peru, we will be welcomed into a community where we’ll form bonds with the families and children, teach English, and help out with light maintenance projects and farming. In the Galápagos we will help out with a variety of projects at a daycare, elementary school, and sustainable farm allowing us to immerse ourselves in the local life of this tropical paradise very few travelers ever get to see.
