Responsible tourism: Northern Peru natural history tours


The Chaparri Reserve is managed by locals that help protect one of the most threatened ecosystems in Northern Peru. We are committed to support this effort in a region where there is scarcity of nature protected areas and also scientifically not well-known dry forest. Locals small-scale farmers and neighbors of Chaparri have been substantially important to patrol and largely mitigate the rampant forest destruction in one of the regions that suffers most from soil loss, permanent drought and the effect of El Niño. The work in Chaparri and the communities is one of the best role models in conservation practiced with participation of locals from small villages in Peru.

On the other hand, our tours visiting several historical Precolumbian are part of the regional effort to conserve ancient monuments protected by law and to stop looting and illegal excavations of sacred pyramids and tombs that were systematically destroyed before archaeologist would have the chance to study them. Our operators and local guides are committed to help archaeological parks and museums.


Our company hires local bilingual guides and drivers. Our clients spend nights in locally owned 2-star lodges and buy services from other small family-owned businesses as they travel. No other more promising industry like tourism besides agriculture guaranteed more permanent jobs and income..

For more than 20 years, in Northern Peru, local communities near Chaparri have been actively involved in biodiversity conservation and learned to use nature tourism as their income, generating funds for forest, soil and water conservation and also, important, to improve their health program and education. Friendly locals have been hosting international travelers, photographers, journalists, birders and film producers all year round.

We enforce this approach and this is why we have chosen Chaparri as part of the tours. Few communities in Northern Peru are privileged of having impressive numbers of Andean Bears and other majestic wildlife thanks to their men, women and young villagers who believed in tourism.
