Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru vacation, culture of the Northern Andes


On this tour we visit the far more off the beaten track area of Northern Peru, where tourism is still in its infancy compared with the south and offers a valuable asset to communities in this traditionally poorer region. We use public transport on one of the longer journeys from Trujillo to Cajamarca and take walking tours of the town centres at each spot.
We have had extremely complimentary reports on the drivers we use for the transport in the Amazonas region of this tour. They are very cautious drivers, take care not to erode the mountain roads and are very safe. They are all local and know the routes and road extremely well and communicate through our Tour Leaders to the group about their upbringings and knowledge of the area.


We use small locally run hotels in almost all the locations. We also make sure we make use of the places offering food to travelers who come through the more remote towns such as Chillo, Leimebamba and Chachapoyas as they do not have such an influx of visitors as other parts of the country.
Local guides are used at all the sites. We actually include them on nearly all our excursions. We didnít used to but we asked to in order to provide more work for the local guides. We encourage shopping of local fruits or food or drinks on the side of the road on the route into the Amazonas region as there is little tourist traffic that comes that way.
