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?


  • Dear Matt,
    Back home in North Carolina sharing my trip and pictures with my husband and remembering what a great trip it was. Thank you so much for your perfect planning and of course your selection of "Chino", the worlds best guide. He was so helpful, kind and knowledgeable.
    I will keep pass you name on to anyone that needs a great travel agent.

These young guys were smart, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, had outstanding social skills with my sons (their age) and us old folks. Thank you

  • We did the Ultimate Inca Trail Adventure. Amazonas Explorer is a first class adventure company. Their execution of the trip was flawless. Communication, guides, porters, transports, food, hotels, luggage, permits, tickets, knowledge, history, excellent on all counts. I would recommend this company without any hesitation or qualification. If I go back and I just might, this is the Company I will choose again.
