Go Beyond Travel: Ecuador Gap Year

Explore Machu Picchu on our Peru Projects this summer!⠀

From the Sacred Valley, students will ride an early morning train ride bound for Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of Machu Picchu. They will then take a bus up the famously winding road to the UNESCO World Heritage Site.⠀

With a local guide, volunteers will spend the day learning about the history and significance of the site and reflecting on their experience in Peru. The group will return to the Sacred Valley in the evening. ⠀

To make sure you are eligible, all Peru Project volunteers must apply and submit their passport information by March 31st.⠀
