HEALTH AND SAFETY

Information on the latest COVID-19 news and booking policies

 

Dear Traveler:

As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and the unique challenges it presented, we realize that it helped us to reconsider the types of adventure travel experiences we want to offer to the world.

Travelers are more conscious and selective about where they choose to go these days. That’s why it’s important for us to get closer than ever to our clients and show them
places and cultures that will ignite their imagination and reinvigorate their soul. This isn’t just hyperbole, this is who we are. We want to inspire transcendental change through adventure travel. Now, more than ever.
As 2023 approaches, we continue to optimistically look to the future of travel and offer support to our clients and adapt with the current situation based on local risk assessment, just as we’ve always done.
Health, safety, and trust are paramount to us. We are ready to welcome you to Peru!

With our best wishes,

Enrique Umbert

CEO & Co-Founder
