High in the Andes Mountains, get to know an incredible people and their way of life.

Your group’s adventure starts here, up in the clouds of the Andes Mountains. From volcanoes to grasslands, lakes to forests, there’s an adventure waiting for you. And from the peaks of the world’s longest mountain range, you’ll have the opportunity to see the world from a different point of view—that of the Kichwa people who live there. Get ready to meet the trailblazing young women of a local girls’ club, walk in the footsteps of community members and so much more.
