Alpaca Expeditions tour group

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

Employing a Women porter treks

"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.
