Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru trekking holiday, Salkantay trek

Environment

We are passionate about the preservation of the natural environment, and so is our local partner in Peru. Walking tours are one of the most environmentally friendly forms of travel, relying primarily on man-power rather than mechanised transport, thus having a significantly lower carbon footprint than other travel forms. Not only does this mean that your trip has a minimal negative effect on the environment, it also means that you get a real taste of the country and can really get under its’ skin meeting local people along the way. Although the majority of this tour sees you sleeping under canvas, where required, the hotels used are all locally owned with a focus on environmental sustainability. Our local partners also work with local NGO’s to offset negative environmental impacts through providing funding to charities, receiving training in environmental sustainability and sourcing supplies locally, reducing the distance food travels from field to table.

Community

Our local partner is a member of Turismo Cuida, a civil non-profit association that seeks to promote responsible tourism as a tool for sustainable development and encourage social responsibility. Through this association, they support projects in education, cultural and natural heritage, developing projects that will contribute to the preservation and conservation of the Peruvian people’s heritage. Our local partners employ local people, as well as providing training in hospitality management and catering. They also provide financial support to initiatives that provide free education and healthcare to disadvantaged families, assisting the local economies in the locations that you visit to grow in a sustainable manner. We are involved in the development and building of ‘Casitas Calientes’ aka Warm Houses. This project works to provide warm buildings through modern technology to prevent the number of deaths of children and elderly people as a result of the cold in the highlands. Through employing local people and encouraging our trekkers to purchase souvenirs locally from the very people that make them, the trip is contributing positively to the local economy and encouraging positive cultural exchange between foreigners and the locals too.
