Treasures of Peru

Overview

Enjoy this 12-day journey to Peru, a land of contrasts and rich in culture, legend and folklore. The trip starts in Lima, the capital of Peru, where you can experience the colonial ‘City of Kings’ on foot. Fly to Cusco and wander through its narrow cobble-stoned streets and markets. Discover the treasures of the Sacred Valley, walk around the Incan salt evaporation ponds, hike near Pisaq and marvel at the views of the Andes Mountains. Be astonished by your first view of Machu Picchu, before exploring the incredible Machu Picchu ruins. End your discovery of Peru with a visit to Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world where you will step foot on the floating reed islands of Uros and the beautiful island of Taquile.

SPEAK TO A SPECIALIST

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.

4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel.

Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
