Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We are committed to offering low impact vacations which benefits the countries and communities we visit, as well as our travelers. As most of the time on our tours is spent exploring on foot, it is important that our staff, local partners and customers are aware of the delicate balance which exists in the places we visit.

Environment
On our tour dossier, we offer customers to purchase a discounted filter bottle which combines three different technologies to remove over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants in water. This prevents the need for single use bottles. Guides collect and dispose of all litter and use responsible cooking fuels instead of wood.

We operate a Ďleave no traceí policy in the national parks, archaeological sites, monuments and other sensitive areas; these should be treated with the ultimate respect to maintain them for future generations. Our guides are trained to promote this message to our customers in Peru.

People

This tour focusses on the lesser visited areas in Northern Peru, away from the main tourist places. Tourism has only arrived in the past few years due to the poor road system, hence why we treat northern Peru with the utmost of respect. It is commonplace to see no other tourist on this tour.

We work with local operators and local guides who share our commitment to responsible travel where possible. They take pride in employing and training only locals, to ensure money ends up in the hands of Peruvian communities.

On this tour we stay in locally owned hotels and characterful accommodation. We stay in a village called Leymebamba. The owner employees only Peruvian staff and uses the hotels garden to preserve traditional Peruvian flowers.

We cap passengers at a maximum of 22 customers so as not to impact on the Peruís fragile environment, as we explore primarily on foot. This tour uses activity providers owned by Peruvian companies. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities we visit.

Given the remoteness of the location, we eat in restaurants owned by locals, and eat local food. The type of food we eat depends very much on where we are for example: we may enjoy mangos in the lush valleys yet enjoy goat up in the drier mountains the same day. Very little of the food is brought in from the outside. It is important to us that local businesses benefit from tourism.
