Linguistic Horizons offers two unique opportunities to experience Peru! Unlike typical study abroad programs, we offer off the beaten path hands on learning programs. We are located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, between Cusco and Machu Picchu! Choose from one of the following programs, or combine the two!:
We arrange customized voluntary internships for each student. Based on your interests and the needs of our local host organizations, we arrange a mutually beneficial internship placement. Most often students participate over Winter Break or Summer. Long stays and alternative dates are available upon request. Learn more here.
This program is offered over Winter Break and Summer. It is a 2-week long hands-on learning experience. You will learn about Andean plant based medicine, aromatherapy, herbal medicine, super foods, nutrition, vegan cooking and more! Those wishing to stay longer than 2-weeks may extend their stay with hiking adventures or an internship. Learn more here.
3) Nutrition & Natural Medicine + Internship
For students who are interested in staying for longer than 2 weeks, you may choose to combine both programs. You would need to participate during the set dates for the two week Nutrition & Natural Medicine program and then could extend your stay with a customized internship for a week or longer. The program fee for this option is based on total duration of stay. See the program fee listed by duration for our internship program, and add a $220 supplement for the Nutrition & Natural Medicine component.
