School Notes:

  • Spend three weeks living in a small village in the highlands of this fascinating country – with a culture as colorful and diverse as the local array of brilliantly dyed llama wool sweaters. Join members of the local community in meaningful service projects, from light construction to teaching schoolchildren, to helping with the local harvest. Then, explore the other-worldly landscapes and extraordinary wildlife of the Galápagos – one of the most unusual places on earth and home to giant tortoises, lava tunnels, equatorial penguins, marine iguanas, and blue-footed boobies. Traveling from island to island by boat, cruise, hike, and snorkel through unmatched geographic and biological diversity.
