- VOLUNTEER WEEK:
Volunteer Voyages will be taking a group of volunteers to the mountains above Pisac, Peru to a small village called Paro Paro consisting of 150 families. We will be teaching the villagers how to construct water filters made from basic, inexpensive materials to be utilized. We have worked with these lovely people before when we taught them how to build solar stoves for cooking. They are a very friendly, hospitable people and their village is nestled in one of the most pristine areas of Peru! Unbelievable views are awaiting you.
- TOURIST WEEK:
- Optional, and customizable. Additional fees will apply – please contact us for details that are specific to your desires.
- If you haven’t been to Machu Picchu – or if you want to go there again – now is the time, since you’re already in the neighborhood. It’s a great opportunity to spend some time seeing Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. You may also want to take some time to visit the Colca Canyon, where the giant Andean Condors rule the skies. With their 12-foot wingspan, they’re easy to spot. The canyon is the second deepest in the world (1000 feet deeper than the Grand Canyon in the US), and offers incredible vistas. Or maybe Lake Titicaca intrigues you. At over 12,000 feet above sea level, it’s the highest navigable lake in the world, and offers many fascinating opportunities – from taking a boat ride to visit people living on man-made floating islands that their ancestors created, to having a trout lunch on the island of Taquile while watching the men and boys of the island knit. If you would rather visit the desert, Peru has that for you, too. When you’re in the middle of it (it’s 50-miles across), riding on sand buggies or gliding down the dunes on a board, you’ll forget you’re in South America and will keep a sharp lookout for Lawrence of Arabia. On your way to and from there you might want to stop at the Islas de Ballestas to take a boat ride out to the island to see the millions of seabirds, including penguins, residing there. Or you may want to spend a few extra dollars to fly over the Nazca Lines in a small plane. We’ll be glad to help you customize your experience to make it the most memorable time possible.
