Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 15 Days (21 with Extension)
Location: Peru
Programme Target: 1,850
Registration Fee: 390



On this Challenge you get to spend one week working in the local community on a range of projects aimed at improving education quality in the Sacred Valley. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you're immersed in the incredible local culture. After your week of volunteering you'll get to end your journey with the amazing 5-day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu!

During your first week you’ll be immersed in the local culture in and around the Sacred Valley, volunteering in one of our partner schools to deliver a range of educational workshops. You could be teaching sessions that focus on conversational English, life skills, the environment, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and teach fun workshops that will engage the children and allow them to learn hands-on.

In your second week you’ll head off to Machu Picchu. The 5 day trek will test your endurance, reaching 4600m above sea level as you pass through the highest point of the Trek(4,600 mts). The awe-inspiring views will keep you going as you pass the unbelievable Andean lakes and finally reach Machu Picchu in an epic final day! 

Your journey with us doesn't have to end here, extend your trip to visit Arequipa and the Colca Canyon. You can view the extension trip itinerary here
