Our Spring Semester run from February 1 - May 15 in South America. Students travel through Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. We begin our adventure at the oldest hacienda in Ecuador where we can practice our Spanish during cooking lessons in the restaurant’s kitchen and at a neighboring Montessori school. Students delve into the jungle with naturalists and explore the plants, animals and waterways of the Amazon Basin. As we hike over Peruvian mountain passes, students witness glaciology. We then explore Inca History with an Andean medicine man who shares the mysteries of the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. We practice our Spanish in markets, villages and schools as we interact with community members, meet local authors, mountaineering guides and local historians. The semester culminates with ice axes and crampons as students attempt mountaineering in Bolivia’s Cordillera Real.
