Responsible tourism: Peru tour, off the beaten track

Environment

When travelling in an area of Peru that has few tourists compared to the better known regions, there is an additional responsibility on us as a company and on our clients visiting to do everything possible to minimise our impact.

We reduce our waste while travelling, using local cafes and restaurants. We also work extremely closely with our locally owned suppliers to inform and educate their staff about a range of issues, including litter and waste disposal, and the recycling of material. Clients are advised to bring their own water bottles rather than purchase plastic.

Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. If this is not possible we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind. Many of the hotels and lodges we use are in extremely remote areas and are therefore almost entirely self-sufficient, using local sources of food, labour and construction materials.

We work closely with our local suppliers to highlight best practice in terms of environmental issues, an important effort in a country where the environment is often taken for granted.

Community

On this tour we visit Chachapoyas, a thriving little market town with a wide range of fruits and vegetables, some craft goods, and some smaller woollen accessories such as straps and belts, supporting a mostly indigenous population of around ten thousand, themselves with a reputation for being among the most friendly and hospitable people in Peru. Our purchases here and at other locations throughout the tour help support and maintain local communities.

Our suppliers in this northern region of Peru are small and locally owned, meaning that the income remains within this little visited area and creates a real economic contribution. We also feel that the passion inherent within our local Peruvian team means that your experience will be enhanced.

We only employ local staff and unlike many operators we believe that to send a foreign Tour Leader along to accompany your trip is an unnecessary burden on your wallet and our carbon footprint. Finally to emphasis our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travellers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.
