Scale glaciated Andean peaks, explore ancient Incan ruins of Cusco, enter the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, and work alongside locals in welcoming communities. Practice Spanish with locals, or pick up some words of the local indigenous dialects that are spoken throughout the country. Marvel at the sight of the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu, and work with direct descendants of the Incan Empire on service projects.

Sacred Valley Service Project
The Sacred Valley Project is a Rustic Pathways Foundation partner organization based in Ollantaytambo. Since its founding in 2009, it has worked tirelessly to address the issue of access to education for girls in the Sacred Valley, in part by providing housing for twenty young women who would not otherwise be able to attend school. In addition to the safety of a comfortable dormitory, students participate in leadership workshops, receive meals and homework help, among other efforts giving them the resources to become educated and empowered women.
