Amazonas Explorer

At Amazonas Explorer we use adventure to help you experience the beauty and wildness of Peru firsthand and on an intimate level. We strongly believe that regular immersion in nature is essential to the health of the human soul and that the world would be a better place if more people spent more time in nature. Indeed the Incas themselves built many of their sites in spectacular wild locations to be closer to nature. By helping people experience these places for themselves, we hope to share some of the magic that we ourselves enjoy, and 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 Paul,
    We had a wonderful time mountain biking with Juan Carlos on Saturday. It was honestly the best mountain biking excursion I have ever been on. I would love doing that every day for the rest of my life!  I would love doing that every day for the rest of my life!

  • Excellent itinerary. Just right. Very good organisation, all very smooth, impressed by your dedicated staff. Paolino´s cooking kept us happy and warm during the trekking, very impressive. We enjoyed the rafting trio ( Santiago, Neil and Victor)- great guys, hugely entertaining. Efrain was a truly outstanding guide. Absolutely passionate about the Incas, very knowledge and generally a wonderful person. The trek was harder than we though but very happy to have have been pushed. Every member of your team was fantastic, we can´think of how you could improve it. We had a fantastic time

  • We both successfully managed the Inca trek, culminating with a return visit to Machu Picchu on the Day 5. The whole experience certainly lived up to our expectations. We had both done some training beforehand and we were glad we did because the trek is in parts quite strenuous, especially Day 3.  Everything was very well-organised. We were in the hands of Amazonas Explorer. Our guide (Edward) was very experienced. He knew the area very well and had led groups on more advanced treks in his time. He knew about the Incas, the trail, the surrounding mountains and forests, flora & fauna, history, economy and even a bit of politics. The crew was also amazing, being courteous and friendly, efficient & helpful, and made a major contribution to our overall enjoyment. We shall never forget the rush of the porters’ train as they passed us by on the trail as they pushed on to the next rendez-vous. The camps were good and well-positioned. The days were well-designed and thought-out. As you know, it is possible to complete the trek in a shorter duration but 5 days was good for us, particularly at the end. Edward gave us a good tour of MP. It was incredibly hot that day and the place was thronging with visitors. We enjoyed our visit and the level of information was right for us.
