You may decide to work and live in one of these communities, creating a truly unique cultural exchange. Some of your daily tasks may be working in the fields, cooking or traveling with your hosts.

Community Development and Cultural Immersion Programs.
We have worked over the past eleven years to develop relationships with people that still practice very traditional ways of living. During the different treks our guides will offer you the chance to experience their unique lifestyle. We believe that this offers our customers the chance to discover local customs and traditions, while at the same time providing opportunities for the local people. Most of our excursions are organized together with local partners. The support of these local partners is very important for the realization and authenticity of our activities. We offer a variety of cultural immersion programs that allow you to have the experience of a traditional way of living. These experiences are valuable for learning more about traditional Peruvian cultures and a different way of living. On some of our trips it will be noted that there is an opportunity for a small donation of school supplies or clothes. There are many exciting opportunities for learning about and supporting local traditional communities.
