Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru walking and cultural vacation

We operate this trip in conjunction with the most ecologically aware tour operators in Peru.

For hiking the Inca Trail we buy fresh local produce. In preference we choose local over imported goods, encouraging the use of Andean products in our cooking. On our treks we minimize waste by using products with minimum packaging, leaving no litter and keeping all water sources clean, leaving camp-sites cleaner than we find them. Rubbish is carried out. We ask for your full consideration and co-operation concerning all ecological matters, especially in the disposal of rubbish. Our local staff will outline for you the procedures we use in Peru.

We are involved in the ongoing training of our trek staff. All our porters on hiking the Inca Trail carry a maximum We support the Tourism Concern Porters Policy and are involved with the social project Huchuy Yachaq . We are happy to distribute your donations of much needed warm clothes and shoes to Peruvian children through this organization - please contact us for details of how you can help. Volunteers are welcome to work on the project.

Please note that as a result of a recent government environmental improvement scheme, metal tipped walking poles are no longer allowed on the Inca Trail so please ensure you pack rubber tips. Plastic water bottles are also banned so please remember to take your water carriers or platypus hydration systems with you.

We are also now supporting the UK registered chairty Amantani. As this charity is very much in keeping with our ethos of small scale, targetted help which is educational & sustainabale. HuchuyYachaq is the other main Peruvian charity we support by paying a for a full time teacher. A % of all our income goes to support those projects.
