Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru and Bolivia tour, 12 days

Environment

On this epic trip through Bolivia and Peru, we will be travelling overland, using a combination of overland vehicles, buses and trains, thus cutting out the need for air travel and reducing carbon-emissions. Going overland (by car and on foot for excursions) means you get to experience physically crossing the borders between countries as well as explore places which are off the beaten track.
A highlight of this tour is the opportunity to trek the Inca Trail. We offer a unique route; the Wild Andes Trek where you'll hike through pristine unspoilt Andean scenery, walking ancient Inca Trails and passing by local communities. This takes you away from the overcrowded thoroughfares of the Classic Inca Trail and gets you out into the real Andes. This directly benefits the host communities that we travel through, by supporting education, income generation and environmental sustainability projects.
All of our vehicles conform to UK emission controls when they leave the UK and are regularly serviced and maintained in established, locally-owned workshops ensuring that they run as efficiently as possible and our economic returns to a country reach beyond tourism. Waste products such as oils and tyres are often reused several times after we have finished with them, as we pass them on to local people.

All trucks carry a 350-litre water tank, providing drinking water for the group and minimising the need to purchase bottled water. Rather than using plastic bags when shopping for food, we also provide reusable longer lasting bags; we bury our bio-degradable waste or give it to local people to feed livestock; and for cooking we generally use gas instead of wood, a cleaner fuel which leaves natural resources for local people. Passengers and crew are encouraged to use rechargeable batteries for items such as cameras, which can be charged from mains supplies or on our trucks as we travel.

In the office and as a company: We are committed to trying to reduce, re-use and recycle as much as is possible: we reduce what we print by using email and online media for the majority of our communication; any necessary print is always 2-sided and all paper products (in addition to plastics, glass, cardboard, oils and metal) are recycled. We minimise our energy consumption in whatever way we can (e.g. using energy efficient light bulbs and minimising water usage with reduced water cisterns in the bathroom for example).

Community

We are committed to promoting human rights within our sphere of influence – this means trying to ensure that everybody involved with us are treated with fairness and respect, including our office staff, crew, local guides and suppliers, as well as all the other stakeholders.

We are also involved with a variety of community projects in key destinations as we visit. Our involvement with these projects is a long-term commitment, allowing us and our passengers to participate directly in delivering real practical benefits to the communities we travel through on the ground. The projects are not tourist initiatives, but a way of employing tourism to generate funding and support and facilitate community interaction.
We believe that local culture and communities must be an integral part of our trips. We recognise that we are guests of the local communities we travel through and strive to make these communities into our partners.

Wherever we are in the world, we prefer to use smaller locally-owned businesses, ensuring that local communities gain a direct economic benefit from our business; for example, we use small locally owned hotels, campsites and activity providers wherever possible.

We use local guides and operators throughout the trip; for example, at Sacred Valley we use a responsible local operator that provides training and employment to many local people as guides, providing them with stable employment in the tourism industry.
Tarpuy Yachay (“Growing Knowledge” in local Quechua language) is the name of our flagship community-based tourism project in South America. This is a trekking programme that seeks to genuinely benefit the host communities our groups pass through via education, income generation, and environmental initiatives, whilst protecting the communities from exploitation and giving them ownership over how their environment is used.
The relatively recent arrival of adventure tourism (specifically trekking) has brought much needed economic development to the communities in the region, however unfortunately these benefits are not always evenly distributed. The Tarpuy Yachay project aims to readdress the balance of this situation by facilitating a trekking programme whereby the benefits of tourism are more equitably and directly disseminated.
70% of people travelling with us in Peru now choose to participate in the Wild Andes Inca Trek rather than the hugely popular classic 'Inca Trail' - which means that company and passenger donations now amount to approximately US$10,000 every year.
Achievements so far
To date, our groups donations have helped contribute to the following:
• Improving local schools: refurbishment projects including replacing windows, painting walls and re-wiring
• Providing school equipment, for example desks, chairs, books and other materials
• Recruitment and on-going employment of a full-time teacher for each community
• Creating designated camping areas with toilet facilities in order to prevent contamination and degradation of open spaces and provide an income for the communities
• Micro-projects to increase the type of crops available to local people in order to improve their diet and nutrition
• Re-introducing herds or 'hatos' of alpacas after an absence of 200yrs
• Reparation of bridges along the pathways
Also, together with the ECOAN (a local conservation non-profit organisation) the Tarpuy Yachay project has donated 5000 polylepsis (Queuna) trees to areas in danger of extinction in the Lares Valley.
