We take care of it all from door to door.
Alpaca Expeditions is a leader in all tours in Peru and treks to Machu Picchu, including a licensed Inca Trail tour operator. We are 100% Peruvian, all growing up in villages around the city, growing up with tales of the greatness of the Incas. While we focus on the care and quality of our tours, our commitment to our community is unparalleled. We are here to make this world a better place, and supporting our community is our top priority. We are also dedicated to the planet and leave no footprint on our tours and provide extra support to help clean the trails on every trek. We are excited to show you our homeland and hope you fall in love with Peru.

Equal Employer For All Men and WOMEN
"The Journey is the Destination"
Alpaca Expeditions believes strongly in being an equal employer for all people. Women have not had the opportunity to have key roles in tourism companies and we are working hard to change this. For the last three years we have had female guides working all our tours and treks and in 2018 we began hiring female porters. Initially, we hired 15 women as porters and worked with them on how to create an environment that will allow them to work successfully. We have focused on making sure they have help at home when they are working, receive fair salaries and are treated with respect at all times. We are listening to them and hope to expand our group of women who are working on the mountain for us. These women amaze us every day with their strength, courage and disposition as they are making mountains move with a smile on their face every day. Help us salute our team...both men and women, the hardest working team on the mountains.
"Employing a Women porter is helping in the education of their children"

Here at Alpaca Expeditions, We're Proud of Where We Came From and Where We're Headed
Alpaca Expeditions prides ourselves on having the best guides: both smart and fun and all University grads in Tourism. Our porters work endlessly to take care of your every need. Our office staff answers all questions with detail and clarity. We invest in the best equipment from Eureka tents to Therm-a-Rest air matts. We make safety our #1 priority always bringing full oxygen tanks, first aid kits and our guides always travel with satellite phones. We are here to help in every way possible.
Alpaca Expeditions is dedicated to No Footprint Left Behind...by our groups and others. We create campaigns to clean trails from all trekkers and make sure we leave the trail looking better than when we arrived. We work with local villages in tree planting traditions, planting more than 10,000 trees to date. We work with local farmers and vendors to make sure we have the best food to provide on all our tours.
Alpaca Expeditions was created with a goal of giving back, which is a true sense of pride for us. We have donated computers, books, boots, sneakers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sports equipment, even a teachers salary for a year to ensure the children had access to math and science. Twice a year we invite our porters and their families to Machu Picchu for their first visit ever. There is always more to do and we promise to continue this work.
Alpaca Expeditions is so excited to have won the Best Business in Peru in 2017. Previously we have won the Q'Ente Award for Best Travel Agency in Cusco twice and have received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence every year since our inception in 2012.Alpaca Expeditions founder Raul Ccolque and Manager Ronaldo Ccoqlue accepted the award on behalf of the company. It was a great night for us and we hope with hard work we will be celebrating many more.
