Amazonas Explorer

We believe the landscape of Peru is as much a wonder of the world as Machu Picchu. We create adventures that allow you to experience its beauty and uniqueness firsthand and to benefit from time spent in nature. We hope to inspire more people to love and protect our wild places.

How we travel

Travel safely

Safety is our number one priority. You cannot have a good experience if you do not feel safe. Travel carries risk, the important thing is to be aware of that risk and to manage it.

Travel responsibly

Some people think travelling responsibly is a choice, we believe it is an obligation. If we destroy the places we travel, there will be nowhere left to travel.

Travel adventurously

Challenge yourself, go beyond the crowds, try something new. Yes, it will require effort,  but the rewards are huge, for this is when the magic happens.

Experience Peru with all your senses

Taste Peru

To eat in Peru is to journey from jungle to high mountain, from coast to desert. It is to know the people of Peru, to travel through a history of conquest and immigration and the influences they brought to the table.

Hear Peru

Open your ears and take in the sound of Peru. From the tones of Quechua language to the silence of open space,  from the lilt of the flute to squawks of Parakeets. Peru is a unique soundscape.

See Peru

Peru is visually stunning. The scale and variety of its landscapes is hard to match. The best views require you to leave the road behind. And they require you to take the time to stop and open your eyes.

Feel Peru

You cannot feel Peru from an air conditioned car. Step outside and feel the heat of the sun give way to the cold night air. Walk and feel the earth beneath your feet. Paddle and feel the force of flowing water. Bike and feel the contours of the Andes in your legs.

Is this the kind of adventure you want to have?

  • Hi Mark,
    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for arranging the Choquequirao trek for me. I had an absolutely amazing time. Juan Carlos and Eduardo were superb guides and kept us safe and humoured throughout. The group were also great to trek with and I feel like I have made some new friends.
    Best wishes to all at Amazonas and thanks again.
    Kind regards,

  • Dear all,   Just wanted to say a massive thank you (from both Dad & I) for organising such a wonderful trip to Peru.

Everything ran so smoothly and we both totally fell in love with Peru!   Very much looking forward to sending lots of people your way!   Thank you so much again and speak soon,   Milly

  • Dear Amazonas Explorer, How do we begin to thank you for the truly amazing experience you planned for us? With three weeks in Peru and only the barest outline of where we wanted to go and what we like to do, you filled in the blanks and gave us the trip of a lifetime! Each day was a new adventure full of wonderful sights, people and experiences. The places we stayed were wonderful and the food in Peru was fabulous, but it was your people who put the trip over the top. The execution of the plan was flawless – everyone was prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. They took great care of us and eliminated all the usual stress of travel. You planned for us the perfect balance of “guided” time and independence; the hiking and biking days were perfectly suited to our age, ability and the altitude. We’re telling everyone we know to visit Peru and plan their trip with Amazonas! Robin and OJ Burns

  • Hi Paul, I just wanted to pass along some feedback from the client. They had a really great time in Cusco. They absolutely loved the Machu Picchu trek and one of their favorite activities was interactive with the children at the service site.
