NO ONE HAS EVER BECOME POOR BY GIVING.

WHY OUR TRIPS OUR SUSTAINABLE
Give back to the community
Let's relax, have fun, treat ourselves!
And let's also make a positive change around us, and give back to the people who welcome us into their magnificent land.
3% of the total cost of your tour is a direct donation to a local NGO.
For this upcoming trip, Amantaní will receive the donation, an orphanage in Cusco that houses youth from 0-18 years old (see info below).
In every trip, we include hikes that will bring you in close contact with nature. Whenever possible, we choose activities with low carbon footprints, restaurants that use organic products, and hotels 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.
Support the local economy
We always choose local partners that hire local residents under fair conditions and that distribute profits amongst the greatest number of local people.
For example, the Llama Pack Project, whose guides will be taking us on a hike along with llamas, works in partnership with 60 rural families in the Urubamba Mountain Range.
We also prioritize restaurants that donate part of their profits to local NGOs.
WE ALSO PROMISE YOU:
A trip of a lifetime
The best hidden spots
Authentic cultural experiences
An amazing food experience
Meeting local people
The best quality-to-price ratio
A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER
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 4 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've been here for quite a while and know the place quite well, I could organize organize some tours to help travellers discover the wonders of this place, and have a percentage of that money go towards helping the people around me. Bingo!
