- Whilst hiking, all costs are covered by Condortrekkers. Our meals are all vegetarian/vegan although you’re welcome to bring along some meat if you feel it necessary.
A typical day for a volunteer
- This is not easy to describe as there are no typical days. Also in that we believe initiative to be one of the primary qualities in a volunteer.
- When not hiking however, tasks include: promotion!!!, teaching English to the guides, exploring new routes, translation, equipment maintenance, trip preparation, activities with the children from the projects we support and whatever new ideas you wish to introduce.
