Machu Picchu is just one incredible stop along the way as we explore the ancient Incan empire. Hike to breathtaking Andean summits as llamas stampede by. In the Sacred Valley, live at a hacienda and learn Spanish from local instructors. There we also team up with local elementary school kids, to help with their latest community project. Lastly, travel to the Amazon River Basin to participate in service projects with local volunteers, working on conservation awareness and environmental education. Ruins. Rainforests. Rewarding experiences. From cultural exchange opportunities to real world field-based learning and service, Peru will fill you with memories and experiences that will guide you forward.

“The Peruvian people always find reasons to smile. It wasn’t hard to, in all truth, since there are so many amazing things to see and do in Peru. From Machu Picchu to taking a swim in a small river at an indigenous village, I had fun in every environment and it broadened my horizons.” — Anna Reed, 2013
