Rustic Pathways offers one-of-a-kind experiences throughout the breathtaking landscapes of Peru. Our staff has cultivated strong relationships with local communities, developing sustainable, long-term service initiatives and providing authentic experiences for our students. As a student you will have the opportunity to travel to Peru and backpack through the Andes, live in rural village communities, or even volunteer at an animal rehabilitation center in the Amazon Jungle.
“For me, Peru is much more than a stamp in my passport. It’s being welcomed like family into Quechua communities, it’s being overwhelmed by incredible vistas in the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca, and it’s trekking deep into the Amazon jungle and truly learning about the power of nature. Tourists will come to see Machu Picchu, but travelers come and fall in love with the raw beauty, rich culture, and endless adventures Peru has to offer.”
--Kelly Moynihan, Peru Country Director
