4 weeks living alongside traditional communities in the stunning Moray and Colca regions of beautiful Peru.
Experience the Peruvian way of life in the stunning Andes mountains. You’ll stay in two of our camps during your month in Peru, both rural and rustic, with jaw-dropping views. Many people live below the poverty line in the rural highlands, so you’ll work on improving primary school and community facilities. Build greenhouses, plant seeds and saplings, and carry out workshops on healthy eating for the local children. Trek to Cruz del Condor to take in the unbelievable scenery and spot the world’s largest flying bird, the condor, soaring above you. The vibrant bustling cities of Cusco and Arequipa are yours to explore. A visit to the markets to pick up some Peruvian handicrafts is a must, as is sampling some traditional Pisco Sours. You will make a measurable impact on the communities you meet in Peru, their warmth and cultural heritage will stay with you long after you return home.
Usual working days are Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and will include the following activities.
Top up your trip with the incredible Machu Picchu trek.
You will also spend time in the beautiful and busting cities of Cusco and Arequipa. You will have opportunities for sightseeing, shopping and taking advantage of the vibrant nightlife.
All of your in-country transfers are scheduled by us, including your airport pick up. We employ our own drivers and they will be there to greet you at the airport, holding a Camps International board so you can't miss them!
Our permanent and fully staffed camps are co-located with the communities with whom we work. Accommodation ranges from traditional thatched buildings to tents. All camps have clean toilets and private washing facilities (not all camps have hot water, but it is refreshing!), and all camps are designed to feel like your second home. There's nothing like chilling out at the end of the day around the camp fire, under the stars.
Our locally employed kitchen teams will provide you with three delicious meals a day. There's unlimited fresh drinking water and a real mix of local cuisine with some western classics to fill you up after a day of project work. Our kitchens always act as the heart of any camp and our staff work extremely hard to consistently create a great standard of food for most dietary requirements.
