    ►I am a professional mountain guide with an expedition agency in the Northern Andes of Peru, in the city of Huaraz. ✓

    We are looking for volunteers to help translate our website into English, German, and French.

    In return you will receive a free place to stay just outside the city in a beautiful traditional village called Unchus.

    When there is time we might also be able to take you on some trips such as rock climbing, laguna 69, etc. for free as well.

    The only requirements are that you must have English, German or French as your first language and be able to work independently.

    Also we ask for a minimum of two weeks.


    Interested in travel, adventure, and living in the Peruvian Andes?

    We offer more than just a job. We are a trekking and expedition agency based out of Huaraz, Peru, looking for a secretary to assist us with our business.

    The job requires experience with computers, excel, word processor, knowledge of English and basic Spanish. A typical work schedule would be 5 days a week but we are also flexible. Our office is located 10 minutes away from the center of Huaraz. During the high season we are very busy so it would be great to have someone to help us with emails, scheduling, and staying on track of things! Preferable requirements include knowledge of photoshop and a degree or studies in tourism.

    We offer a private bedroom and shared bathroom in our family home in the beautiful, traditional town of Unchus, 20 minute bus ride from center of Huaraz. This is a very traditional and indigenous family setting, consisting of myself Eric, my two brothers, mother and father. We cook 3 meals a day with farm fresh ingredients and you are welcome to join us or there are very cheap restaurant options in town.

    We are looking for someone who can commit to at least 3 months between April and September. The job will begin as unpaid with room and board, but if you are a very hard worker there could be pay included. There will also be many opportunities for you to join us for free on our treks or expeditions, daily tours, rock climbing, Laguna 69, and daily hikes etc.!


    Please contact for more details if you're interested!

    Saludos Cordiales,

    As a volunteer you will be asked to work about 3 hours per day helping us correct the translation of our website.

    We already have pages in English and German but they're not perfect, so those just need to be looked over by a native speaker and corrected where necessary.

    We do not have our page in French yet but it would be wonderful if we could get a French-speaking volunteer to create it for us.

    Additionally: It would be great if you know how to use programs like Photoshop, CorelDRAW or Design web in Dreamweaver "this is only optional" :)
