Take your first steps to your Intern In Britain adventure
Check out what you'll be getting up to in Ecuador on this Multi-Trip in Latin America!
An adventure playground for any explorer. With mountains scraping the skies, crystal clear lakes and spectacular waterfalls you’ll be trigger happy with your cameras on this leg of the journey. Not only is the Andes full of incredible scenery but it’s also home to some pretty special communities.
Your help and support in this community will go a long way as not only will you be using your muscle with construction projects but you’ll also be supporting their livelihood. The local community you will be living and working within specialise in hand making traditional garments. Not only will you get to learn the tricks of the trade, but you’ll be helping them make money from these products to create a more sustainable community.
Currently third party resellers from Otavalo buy these products from the tribes, overcharge tourists and offer a tiny sum in return to those that need it most. With your help this can change. Not only that but you’ll actively help improve schools with construction projects, cultivation, farming as well as bringing access to fresh drinking water to the tribe.
Get those walking boots on as it’s expedition time! Taking you through some of the most spectacular volcanic countryside you will ever see and it all begins at Quilotoa crater lake. Trek through lagoons, bath in geothermal spa’s, try your hand at white water rafting and climb a 20,000ft volcano… something tells me you’ll have a few stories to tell when you get home.
As your trip starts to venture west, you’ll find yourself moving on to new climates. Jungle life is a lot different to mountain life and the equatorial tropics of the Lowland Jungle is the home to a traditional community that needs your support to preserve their traditional way of life.
Prepare yourself for total cultural emersion living and working with Sharman healers, practicing ancient rituals, learning to hunt and learning about the pride and passion behind their ancestry. In return for the kind hospitality, the Tsachila tribe need your help with reforestation. With plans to grow an edible forest, botanical garden and a cocoa plantation you can help in their efforts to create a more sustainable and stable economy.
