Andes to Amazon

Traverse southern Peru from the high Andes mountains to the depths of the Amazon rain forest on this extraordinary service adventure. Get to know your group through community service, mountain treks, and an unforgettable visit to Machu Picchu. Say goodbye to the mountains as you travel deep into the Amazon rainforest and truly experience nature. See wildlife up close as you volunteer at an animal rehabilitation center, then journey to an ecolodge and work alongside the jungle community on conservation projects to help protect this treasure. The perfect trip for adventurers looking to experience parts of Peru on—and off—the map.

Students love visiting secluded Peruvian villages and spending time in the jungle!
