Imagine living like a local 3000m above sea level in Cuzco Peru and working on a Llama & Alpaca farm!   🙂    This placement is a bit left of center but that’s what makes it so cool..   The placement is close to Cuzco (about 30 min) so you’re still close to civilization, but far enough away to feel like you’re really off the beaten path.   Located in a small village in the Andes mountains, experience this family run farm which has dedicated their work to caring for Llama and Alpaca, both native species of Peru.    

This operation is a private enterprise which produces incredible native Peruvian textiles from the wool using traditional shearing, dying and weaving processes.   As a leader in this space, this family run farm also has a mission to increase education locally and internationally around these native Peruvian animals.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Machu Picchu Baby!

Built somewhere in the 1400's, this is the site of massive significance spiritually & historically to the Incan people .  Tourists from around the world travel to Peru just to see it, and Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu.   We can help you book your tour in advance or when you arrive in Cuzco.   There are various options including train ride + hike or a 4 day hike.   Book in advance to ensure you get a spot though!

Cuzco
The historic capital of the Inca Empire, rests at very high altitude in the Andes Mountains.   It's really one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world.   Besides just soaking up the atmosphere of Cuzco, some sights to visit include; Cristo Blanco monument offers amazing views of the city, the Planetarium provides Incan history, the ruins of Qorikancha, in the heart of the city or for the foodies, check out the Choco Museo for everything chocolate!

Moray, Maras And Salinas
These are incredible Incan ruins with many levels of concentric circles like an ancient amphitheater.   This is located only a short bus ride from Cuzco with a nice 4km hike to get to the Maras village and a further 9km hike or taxi to the Moray ruins.   A brilliant day out. 

Amazon Jungle
Peru has managed to do a great job in protecting the Amazon, and has many well protected very large forest areas where you can explore with a guide.   Take a boat down the Rio Tambopata river, experience jungle lodges from Peurto Maldonado and experience one of the most bio diverse regions in the entire world!  

Lake Titicaca
The largest lake in South America, is the birthplace of the sun according to Andean legend.  The town of Puno is a great base with cool local culture and nightlife also with various ruins sights scattered around the islands.

Abholung vom Flughafen Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport
Complimentary Arrival TransferYou’ll arrive at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ).   When clearing immigration it’s best to simply state ‘tourism’.    When you arrive you will be greeted by a member of our local team and taken to the homestay or the volunteer center for orientation.In-Country TransportationMost volunteers will use in-expensive bus transport to get around and to travel to the project placements.  Our coordinators will assist you with all the details while in country. A one-way trip rarely costs more than US $0.50 in Cuzco or nearby neighborhoods and maybe US $2 for longer distances. Taxis are also readily available in and around Cusco. Taxis cost approximately US $3 – $10 depending on duration.  We recommend using formal taxis that use a meter to calculate the fare based on time and distance.
Unterkunft

Your accommodation will be in home Stay’s with middle class Peruvian families in Cuzco.  You’ll likely be placed in a home stay which is approx 15 bus rise from the central volunteer & training center.    This is to ensure you are closer to the placement for less daily travel.  You can request to either share with other volunteers or have a private room in the home stay.   For shared rooms, you’ll normally share with 1-3 other volunteers of the same gender and age group.

All host families are very experienced in hosting international volunteers and go through a rigorous process to ensure very high quality standards are met.  (See below pictures of typical houses).  These homes have electricity, western style toilets, running water, bed linen & basic amenities such as clean drinking water.    Hot showers are less common however!

You’ll be provided a key to the house and are free to come and go as you please while being respectful of the house rules of the family.  WiFi is available at some home stay’s however most volunteers will purchase a data plan for cheap to be used with their own device as required.  Most families are happy to help with laundry, but you should expect to pay around US $2 per load if going to a local laundry service.
