Media & Press Releases

We love working with journalists around the world to share compelling stories of Peru, its communities, and the adventures to be had on treks and tours.

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 own community is unparalleled. We are here to make this world a better place and supporting our own 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.
