NO ONE HAS EVER BECOME POOR BY  GIVING.

WHY OUR TRIPS ARE REGENERATIVE

Heart & Hands

Give back to the community

Let's relax, have fun, treat ourselves! 
And let's also make a positive change around us by giving back to the people who welcome us into their magnificent land.

1% of the total cost of your tour is a direct donation to the Amantaní orphanage in Cusco.

 1% will also go towards towards the project Indigenous Teachings of Peru, our affiliate program that seeks to bring attention to the indigenous wisdom in Peru while offering the individuals fair pay.

Environmental protection

In every trip, we include hikes that will bring you in close contact with nature. We always prioritize activities with low carbon footprints, restaurants that use local organic products, and accommodation with green policies.
We also avoid all disposable items by providing tanks of potable water to refill your water bottle, and re-usable containers to take out food.
As well, 1% of the total cost of your tour is a donation to the Animal Sanctuary near Pisac.

Support the local economy

Your entire itinerary is carefully thought out so that your money is not going towards big enterprises, but rather towards small local entrepreneurs, and indigenous communities.
At its peak in 2019, the tourism industry in Peru reached 5 billion USD. Unfortunately, that money barely reaches the indigenous populations. According to Oxfam, the extreme poverty rate of populations with a primary language other than Spanish is three times greater than the national average.

A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER

Karina Fortier

Hi! I'm Karina. I am Canadian, I love Canada, and never thought I would leave my country to go live abroad. But here I am! I've been in Peru for 6 years now, and loving it a little more as each day goes by.

It's a different world here, that's for sure, and it took me some time to adjust. 

But oh my, is it ever beautiful! And the people are so kind, welcoming, generous, good-humoured... nothing fazes them, even as they live in what most Westerners would consider abject poverty.

As I took in the tainted beauty of this situation, I thought, if only my dear fellow Canadians (and others of course) could spare a few dollars for them, ... and then it occurred to me: it doesn't even have to be charity!

Since I now know this country and its people quite well,  I could organize organize  tours to help travellers discover the wonders of this place, ensuring that we support the local economy along the way.  Bingo!
