You can take a girl out of Ecuador, but you can't take Ecuador out of the girl! An experience that will live with me forever. The most challenging yet best 10 weeks of my life, without a doubt.
Spend ten weeks in Ecuador living and contributing in remote communities in the Andes, jungle, Amazon and on the Galapagos. Learn Spanish along the way, complete a week of adventure on the Ruta de los Volcanes and haggle in artisan markets.
This program departs three times a year and is fully immersive, taking in all the sights and experiences you'll find described on the Ecuador page with plenty of downtime for you to explore the country as you please.
Whilst we recommend the full ten weeks for a complete experience, if you want to join this program in January, April or September and fly home after six weeks (or seven, or eight...), that's no problem. Just get in touch to arrange a return date and price to suit you.
Over the last 12 years we've taken thousands of young people overseas to experience the trip of a lifetime.
That success has drawn industry-wide recognition. We're an accredited member of the Year Out Group, an association designed to promote the benefits of well-structured gap year programs, and part of the equivalent organisation in the USA - the American Gap Association.
We're big on safety too; every one of our programs is carefully researched, audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Industry Standard for organising and managing adventurous activities outside the UK.
