Peru is a truly diverse South American country which is rich in must see sights. Whilst most people will immediately think of the famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu or the tropical Amazon rainforest, there’s something for everyone and it’s easy to understand why more and more people are looking to volunteer in Peru.
Machu Picchu - the most famous Inca site in Peru, and a trip to this country would not be complete without a mountain trek on the Inca trail. Sunrise over these ancient ruins is a sight that will stay with you forever.
Adrenaline rush - if you like your extreme sports, Peru will not disappoint. Try out some sand boarding down the giant dunes near Huacachina, surf some extreme waves on Peru’s coast, paraglide from the coastal cliffs of Lima, ride dune buggies and go river running in the Amazon - awesome!
Arequipa and Colca Canyon - Arequipa is known as the ‘white city’ It is a beautiful colonial city which has been declared a UNESCO Human Heritage site. It is an ideal starting point for an overnight homestay near the volcanic Colca Canyon which is an area of astounding scenic beauty.
Amazon - the Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest in the world and is home to many incredible animals including cougars, jaguars, tapirs, giant otters, llamas and over 1200 species of birds. Peru is an ideal starting point for your jungle adventures.
Shamans - if you are a spiritual person or interested in learning about the traditions of healers and spiritual advisors, Peru offers some interesting options from Amazonian shamans to Andean curanderos or even have a guinea pig rubbed over your body to remove impurities!
