Local Knowledge

We use local guides who have years of experience both living and guiding in their particular regions of Peru, which means you’ll get the inside scoop on where to go and what to do, and you’ll get introduced to even more locals who can share their stories, their culture, their music, and their meals with you for a truly unique, immersive experience. You’ll benefit from guides’ knowledge and planning, so if you have a particular interest or a place you’d most like to see, let them know; they’ll get you there.

Sustainable Practices

Our trips are organized with the well being of each location in mind, which means you’ll be interacting with local businesses, keeping your money within the communities that need it. You’ll also be able to traverse untouched landscapes safe in the knowledge that your presence there will not have a negative impact: when at all possible, you’ll be staying in sustainable lodging, using eco-friendly products, and adhering to best practices when it comes to protecting the environment, preserving it for future generations.

Flexible Planning

Trips are planned in advance to maximize your time in Peru, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make last-minute adjustments according to the conditions on the ground. Your talented, certified, English-speaking guides are also trained to be flexible, ensuring everything goes smoothly by adjusting to weather, timing, or your own wishes for the trip. If needed, they’ll also be happy to adapt your itinerary based on how you’re feeling, how fast you’re going, and what would help you get the most out of your experience.

Modern & Up-to-Date

Trekking in Peru can require a lot of gear, and that gear can require a lot of diligence to maintain. Our trips are always outfitted with the highest quality in mind. That means reliable and safe transportation with experienced drivers and regularly serviced vehicles, and up-to-date equipment that is functional, safe, and eco-friendly—from tents and backpacks to mountain bikes. This ensures you’ll maximize your time with us, filling it with fun activities without fear of delays or breakdowns on the trail.

Authentic Experiences

Most travelers these days are looking for authentic experiences: slower, more in-depth journeys that emphasize local connection, off-the-beaten-path activities and a sense of how it really feels to live in a place. Our guides are happy to share their best-kept secrets with you, showing you local gems or even charting a less traveled course to bypass the most popular, crowded routes. One thing you can be sure of: you won't be seeing the Peru everyone else sees.

Seamless Communication

From the moment you decide to book a trip, you’ll be connected with local specialists who will discuss your wishes, present your options, and work with you to figure out how to optimize your time. Once the trip begins, you’ll be given a detailed trek briefing so you know exactly what to expect. Even at this stage, if there’s anything you want to adjust, speak with your guide and he or she will be happy to make amendments to the schedule.

Safety First

Our top priority is your safety, making you feel well cared for and prepared for every situation. From the beginning of the planning process, we give you direct access to people in Peru who can help you with every aspect of your trip. Once you arrive, you’ll also be given emergency contact telephone numbers, and addresses of nearby emergency facilities. Traveling in Peru can be adventurous, but it should never feel precarious. We have your peace of mind in mind, every step of the way.

Fair & Ethical

Successful trips aren’t just about keeping travelers happy, but also about making sure the people who work for them are well-treated and fairly paid. We hire well-trained and experienced guides, but they’re also backed by a crew of well-paid porters, drivers and cooks. We want you to be able to trust the people you’ll be spending several days or even a couple of weeks with, and to rest assured that they feel secure and take pride in the work they do for you. That way, everyone will have a trip to remember.
