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

It is no secret the Sacred Valley is a fascinating place. Sites like Machupicchu and its 2,500 visitors (pre-pandemic) per day prove it. As important as tourism is for the country and its communities, these numbers are not sustainable and go beyond the areas tourist carrying capacity. Therefore, controlling the number of visitors and group size becomes vital; for that reason, we are committed to running tours with a maximum of 10 people.

Our team is constantly fighting against the use of plastics and we will make you aware of this from minute 1. In the online material (yes, we do not waste paper either) we will provide you with once onboard, you will have our responsible travel tips, where you will be encouraged to bring your own water bottle or get one once you arrive. Straws, plastic bags and wrapped fruit (they are naturally wrapped!) are also banned from this tour.

Finally, we want to point out that we always try and use public transportation first. In this tour, we will combine trains, buses and private transportation, as it is not always possible to go public. We try our best!

People

This trip is all about generously sharing and learning from our host communities. Like many other countries in Latin America, Peru produces a rich and unique blend of ancient cultures and the Sacred Valley is a significant example of this. As you can see in our itinerary, you will be staying, eating, working, and learning how your hosts comprehend life. The Misminay community will be home for a couple of days and here you will visit their textile center, a fundamental place for the local economy and cultural identity. Keep in mind that Andean textiles go back as far as 6000 years and they have been used to communicate wealth, social status, and regional affiliation with others. Learn about the raw materials, threats, traditional processes and products still made in the region.
At Mullak’s Misminay (the “Place of Wetlands” in Quechua) you will also witness traditional dances and music, as well as rituals to thank "Pachamama". Also, expect to hear about myths that will take you back to the Incas' time and help you understand the Andean worldview, together with meals based on local products such as potatoes, oca, quinoa and chilli peppers.

We will be teaching you some useful phrases in Spanish (you can also study a bit before coming.) but keep in mind you might have to learn words and expressions in other local languages. We are sorry "amigos" but you are the visitors and you should be the ones doing the effort to try and adapt. The same goes for things like food - We will be there to try local dishes (that's the whole point). No need to say we will be always going to small/locally owned business. We must make sure the money we spend stays and benefits the local community. Tourism is one of the primary drivers for Peru's economy, but money does not always go to the right hands or stays within the country. You can be certain that every person involved in the creation and running of this trip is local.
