Community Projects

Andean Trails believes tourism should make a positive impact in the communities we visit.

Each year we give a total of approximately USD 4,000 to NGOs and charities working in the Andean nations or conservation :

Several of the projects actively encourage volunteers, so if you would like to donate or fancy contributing time as a volunteer then contact the office for how best to organise this.
