What Alpaca Expeditions do
When Machu Picchu became a World Wonder and the Inca Trail got more known. The amount of visitors increased largely. This created a new opportunity for new tour operators and also staff to get more applicable job opportunities.
The bad thing is that this new amount of visitors and local workers created a new amount of solid waste, crowds at every park, etc.
Alpaca Expeditions as a local operator acknowledge this and got to a solution.
All of our staff from guides to porters and trekking chefs know how to take care of our touristic attractions. All of them know how to reduce the impact of crowds and also to control the solid waste created at every tour. This is because we permanently teach them about the best way to reduce the impact tourism has on our land and the best way to transmit this to our clients.
If we teach our staff and our clients on how to respect and learn about our culture. Everything will work perfectly and this knowledge will keep growing towards more people.
We proudly call ourselves the Green Machine. The #1 tour operator leading the sustainable tourism activities in Cusco and along all of our treks. Our philosophy of ‘’no footprint behind’’ is shared to our clients and practice by our whole team. Alpaca Expeditions has as a top priority the protection of our environment and also to educate our people to keep on this practice on a daily basis. The only way to provide an A class service is by respecting the land we are stepping on and also by following all the regulations provided by our authorities and more.
Everytime you travel with Alpaca Expeditions you become part of the Green Machine family. You become part of our social projects, our reforestation activities, our lectures to our staff to provide the best experience possible while at the same time transmitting our love and respect for our Pachamama.
We work with small groups so we can improve our approach towards this topic and also to guarantee the best experience. Small groups are a more gentle way to access every archaeological park and also to provide a dedicated service. We guarantee the best, safest and more thoughtful experience to all of our clients and the best working experience for our staff.
We can assure that every trek or tour will be done with the same dedication and following all of our rules to preserve the sites visited. We control the number of clients to avoid crowds. This also allows us to be able to communicate all of this in a more effective way and to keep this knowledge to be transmitted to future generations.
