Madventurer community volunteer projects are based around rural villages outside the historic towns of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, and Huaraz, the Adventure and Trekking capital of Peru. Both locations offer breathtaking views and plenty of opportunity for adventurous exploration.
Madventurer has been working in Peru for many years and our projects located high among the spectacular Andes Mountains focus on local community development.

June 10th through to June 23rd for 2 weeks - Peru Village Water Project - £1150 / $1500
June 24th through to June 30th for 1 week - Machu Picchu Trek - £1900 / $2500
• Location: Huaraz and surrounding areas for volunteer project, and Cusco for Machu Picchu
Custom groups can choose their own dates.
A short time ago in a valley far far away ... a small tribe of madventurers worked hard and played hard with the amazing community of Llupa in Peru. Music tastes may have changed but the desire for communities of international volunteers and local volunteers to work together has not....
The type of building projects we get involved in varies and depends on volunteer numbers. In the past we have helped to build sanitation blocks, water storage tanks, school classrooms, clinics, community halls and basic housing.
The key to any project is the partnership between our team and the local community working together. As this is a community-directed project volunteers are working in partnership to complete building work. No previous building experience necessary, local tradesmen or craftsmen to do the specialised parts.
Most special kids I have ever had the privilege of working with and I wish them all the very best in everything they attempt and that they may have a very bright future. I really do feel that we have really made a difference out here in Peru. Chris Hammill, 17, Orphanage and shool placement
I liked the thought of being able to help and I knew I would get to see a part of the country that not many tourists do. Sarah McComas, 21
