The Experience

Your journey begins in the captivating city of Cusco, where you’ll spend the first day acclimating to your new surroundings. During the evening, you’ll attend a comprehensive briefing to meet fellow participants and gain valuable insights into the program, ensuring you’re well-prepared for the adventure ahead.

On your second day, delve into the rich Andean culture as you explore the vibrant Cusco area. Take this opportunity to finalize your supplies and equipment for the upcoming trek through the rainforest, which commences on day three. This spectacular journey will forge connections with locals and provide breathtaking vistas of the Andean landscape.

As you reach your destination on day four, you’ll be warmly welcomed by the local community at dinner. Prior to this, you’ll embark on a guided exploration of the regenerating rainforest, offering your first taste of the lush environment you’ll be working to protect.

Days five through nine will focus on comprehensive training, equipping you with the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute effectively to the project. Learn about the local communities, their challenges, and participate in emergency response training. From days 10 to 31, you’ll actively engage in project work from Monday to Saturday, with Sundays off for personal leisure. On day 32, bid farewell to the Biosphere Reserve as you return to Cusco, signing out of the program the following day.

This immersive conservation experience offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the preservation of the Amazon rainforest while engaging with local communities and forging lasting connections. As you learn, grow, and work together, you’ll leave a lasting impact on this precious ecosystem and create cherished memories to last a lifetime.


Upon your arrival at Cusco Airport, you’ll be greeted by our team and transported to the project site. Throughout your stay, you’ll share a comfortable room with up to three other participants, fostering a sense of camaraderie and connection. Fresh bedding is provided weekly, and a mosquito net ensures a peaceful night’s rest amidst the lush jungle surroundings.

Given the remote location, internet access may be sporadic and unreliable at times. While we understand the importance of staying connected with loved ones, embracing this digital detox offers the chance to fully immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the rainforest. If you do find time in your busy schedule to write home, internet use is available at a charge of $5 USD per hour when using solar power.

Indulge in the flavors of Peru with three daily meals, including packed lunches for your days spent working in the field. Meals typically consist of local fare such as rice with sauce, vegetables, soups, and occasional meat dishes. Our team is happy to accommodate dietary restrictions, so please be sure to clearly state your needs on the application form.

Your time at the Biosphere Reserve will offer comfortable accommodations, opportunities for digital detox, and a chance to experience authentic Peruvian cuisine while contributing to vital conservation efforts.
