Conservation through Tourism
We believe that tourism can be a powerful, positive force towards conservation of ecology and culture by placing economic value on these critical resources. You can participate in these activities by exploring our community-based experiences in Choquechaca or trekking remote regions of The Great Inca Trail, a living road that connected the two capitals of the Inca Empire.

Why you Absolutely Need to Hike The Great Inca Trail
The 25,000-mile road network known as the Qhapaq Ñan was the glue that held the Inca empire together. For a road to survive, it has to be walked. Which is why, for the first time ever, we’re offering luxury treks along select stretches of the road. You’ll traverse pristine Andean scenery, centuries-old traditional villages, and some of the finest ruins in all of Peru – and you’ll do it all with a train of llamas.
Becoming Part of Peru's Andean Community
A day’s hike from the Sacred Valley hamlet of Ollantaytambo, through lush agricultural valleys that quickly turn to steep shrub-covered slopes, sits the Choquechaca plane. This isolated clearing, surrounded by peaks scraping the sky at 20,000 feet, is the humble home of the Sincha family, several generations of indigenous locals who have survived in this rural part of Peru by living off the land just as their Incan ancestors did hundreds of years before.
