Responsible Tourism


Sustainable tourism is based on offering the traveller an authentic cultural experience that supports and respects the local community. We care about the local people, who are the true ambassadors of our Region. And we believe that sustainable tourism should not be an alternative option to conventional tourism. On the contrary, we must travel responsibly and consciously.

 

Our programmes and projects below are the manifestation of our commitment to sustainable tourism. To read more, download our Responsible Tourism Policy.

 

Re-foresting and reduction of single-use plastics.

In 2018, we started a reforestation programme of native trees in the private conservation area of Milpuj - La Heredad and the Municipal conservation area of Huamanpata, in 2015.

 

In October 2019 we reached an agreement with Café Fusiones with the aim of having a water recharge point for locals, national and international visitors.

 

 

Our goal is to avoid the use of single-use plastic water bottles and with the money raised to educate the local population and two schools near the archaeological complex of Kuelap about deforestation and indiscriminate burning of forests.

With our project we have contributed to making our Amazon Region less plastic. In three months (October, November and December) it is 2 kilos and 156 grams of plastic from single-use bottles.

 

Womens empowerment and equality

We train enterprising women to improve the services they provide, accommodation, restaurant and crafts.

 

Support for small craftsmen

In our trips we approach the artisans to contribute directly to the local economy. 

 

Cultural immersion in the rural areas of Huancas and Leymebamba

 

Protection of children

We are against child abuse, sexual and labour exploitation.

 

Environment and animal protection.

We work to preserve the ecosystem, which is why we support the coffee growers of Rodríguez de Mendoza with training in responsible community tourism and include them in our experiential experiences.

We are against the mistreatment and trafficking of animals and plants.
