Responsible tourism: Inca Trail & Peru vacation, tailor made


It is incredibly important to us to sustain the environment on the trips that we do to these countries. We work with Ecoan, Gren Our Planet and the communities of Lares and Ollantaytambo to replant essential native trees. Since 2007 we have planted over 310,000 native trees. By 2020 we want to reach one million trees.
We encourage people to travel overland where possible (a fantastic experience in itself in South America for the views and sense of space you get).
We urge clients to focus their trip on a few places rather than trying to connect many destinations by flights.
Some of our suppliers have foundations or projects that benefit from the hotel/cruise boat or lodge that they operate and we prefer to use these where possible. We explain this to our clients and indeed it can be used as a big selling point throughout the trip planning process.


We look after our porters well. We pay porters more than the wage stipulated by the authorities. We pay the porter’s Inca Trail fee and do not take it out of their wages. They are fully insured and provided with clothing and equipment.
We actively support community based projects. For every Peru booking we will donate £10 to the Living Heart Foundation who have several excellent projects that reach out to the remote Andean regions where children often have poor nutrition and education. They have a café in the town of Ollantaytambo which is a stopping off point for Machu Picchu. We encourage our clients to go there for a coffee or to buy some of the locally produced textiles that this region is famous for.

When creating our tailormade trips we always try to feature hotels or lodges that have a social or environmental project attached to them. For example Hotel Sol y Luna in Peru has its own foundation which helps children in the local area by giving them a chance of an “education, good health, happiness and a brighter future”.

We also work with a small company who take clients off the beaten track in Lima called Pax on Board. Clients can visit a fishing village with a local guide and learn about how important this industry is to the local economy. They eat lunch in a local restaurant. This is always done on a private basis and so usually our clients are the only tourists there.
