ARCC keeps a close eye on the current events in our program locations. The Fall South America itinerary may include Ecuador rather than Peru, depending on the current events.
Adventure and education collide during our journey through the deep valleys, snow-capped peaks, and enchanting sites of Peru and Patagonia. Our South America gap year program takes advantage of our over 20-year history of exploration in the region and opens doors unimagined by the casual traveler. Tread in the footsteps of the Inca and gain insight into an ancient culture as we explore the famous ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru. Dive deep into the complex conservation issues facing Patagonia and embark on a trek amidst the towering peaks and glacial lakes of the famous Torres del Paine National Park.. The abundance of life around us underscores the rich and unforgettable experiences of this South America semester.
