Alpaca Expeditions: Social Consciousness

Alpaca Expeditions is a Peru-based tour company founded by Raul, an ex-porter. Peru is a great tourist destination highlighting the great Machu Picchu (The Old Mountain) and Inca trail in the Andes. To show off these landmarks to tourists in a socially-conscious way, Alpaca Expeditions opened its doors to the visitors to give them a tour of the Andes and to make their vacation unforgettable.

How is Alpaca Expeditions "Socially Conscious?"

At our company, we hire local tour guides and porters - 400 local men and women - who have grown up in the hills of Cusco with the tales of Inca civilization and who are well versed in the terrain. Many people from all over the world arrive in Peru annually to learn more about Inca Ruins. If you want to get the most out of your trip, you should trek with us. At Alpaca Expeditions, we will provide you with the right equipment for the journey. Additionally, we offer porters to assist you with your luggage, and boast tour guides who have diverse knowledge of Peruvian history. Our company has created strong bonds with the community, so when you hire us, we will help you to interact with the locals who live in the mountainous terrain.

The founder of the company created Alpaca Expeditions to try to give something back to the community. Alpaca Expeditions employs many locals. At our company, we take care of our employees, providing them with the right gear and personal protective equipment that they need for their duties. At no time will you ever find one of our porters with worn-out boots. We also make sure that porters carry reasonable weight and give them personal time.

When it comes to the surrounding community, we engage in school and hospital-building programs. We assist children in need by giving them scholarships. Every three months, we provide schools with hygiene supplies and books, as well as computers. When it comes to the environment, we are very cautious. First, we make sure we follow environmental laws set by the state. We eliminate any signs of our passing left after a trek. We also plan tree-planting exercise.

At Alpaca Expeditions, we have an unparalleled commitment to our community. If you are interested in booking one of our tours, or have any questions regarding special accommodations, then feel free to contact us at Alpaca Expeditions. Alpaca Expeditions is a Peruvian travel operator with a main office in located in Cusco, Peru, and we are the top-rated tour operators of the Inca Trail.
