10 days
Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley and Taquile Island – Estimated 8 Service Hours
Meaningful. Sustainable. Unforgettable
From ancient Inca cities to Lima’s sprawling landscape, and from lush Amazonian jungles to the snow-capped Andes, Peru’s culture and countryside offer no shortage of diversity. Take a journey into the southern region of Peru, where you’ll explore archeological treasures like Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu. Then, venture south to one of the highest lakes in the world, Lake Titicaca, where you’ll be in the indigenous cultures of villages surrounding the scenic lake. Working together with locals, you’ll participate in meaningful service projects focused on eco-tourism, community development and cultural immersion.
