In brief

Venture out to Ecuador to experience a mix of community development and adventure across the Andes, Amazon and Galapagos Islands before tackling an expedition week of mountain biking, kayaking and river tubing.

This adventurous team program will steer you off the regular backpacker trail and into traditional indigenous communities, where you’ll live and work alongside some of the world’s most remote cultures helping with sustainable projects

So roll up your sleeves, practice your Spanish and expect a full cultural immersion as you travel across this amazing country.

A 10 week programme includes:

Andes:

  • Living with the Chilcapamba community helping to develop an artisan market.
  • Refurbishing school playgrounds.
  • Teaching English and sport at the kindergarten.

Jungle:

  • Moving on to live with the Tsa’chila community, one of the last remaining tribes.
  • Learn about their traditions and helping improve their standard of living through farming & sustainable building.
  • Spend your weekends swimming in rivers, challenging kids to soccer matches or trekking in the jungle.
Galapagos Islands:

  • Preparing the way to reintroduce the tortoise.
  • Helping with organic farming, reforestation and with the therapy of special needs children.

 

+ Ruta de los Volcanes, Expedition week:

  • Mountain biking to waterfalls,
  • White-water rafting.
  • Trekking around the volcanoes & kayaking
We have four departures to Ecuador throughout the year: Jan, April, July and September for either 6 or 10 weeks.
The most popular is the all singing and dancing 10-week option where you can “do it all” but of course you can go for less time to accommodate restraints on time, budget or both. Just get in touch.
