Includes Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu
This 4-week summer program gives you the chance to immerse yourself in Spanish and experience Peru’s incredible cultural and environmental diversity. It combines a week of conservation focused service-learning and three weeks of amazing educational adventure travel.
Peru is a ‘land of contrasts’. Its people, many of whom are descendants of the Incas, retain rich traditions of language, colorful dress and lively music. It has stunning, diverse landscapes, from the highest snow dusted peaks of the Andes to the lush Amazon jungle. The food is fantastic. The language is surprisingly easy to pick-up. Wild life abounds – you’re sure to see monkeys, flamingos, condor, llamas and the elusive vicuna.
