We’re a member of the Adventure Travel Trade Association!
Aracari is proud to announce we’re a member of the Adventure Travel Trade Association! Operating adventure trips in Peru since we started back in 1996, we felt it was high time that we supported the efforts of this global membership organization, which has social and environmental ethics at the heart of their efforts. The ATTA is an association of 800 members, ranging from tour operators, travel agents, guides, and media representatives, all of whom are dedicated to promoting responsible adventure travel around the world.
As one of the only upscale travel agencies in Peru to operate our own treks, we are able to provide a very high standard of trekking experiences in the Andean region, with the assurance that every detail is catered for. Offering short camping treks, treks that take you close to local communities, multi-day high altitude treks, and anywhere in between, our guests get to know the region, its landscapes, its history, and its people through up-close-and-personal immersion. We have been recognized for our expertise in adventure travel before, most recently, in May 2013, Travel + Leisure featured our trek to Apu Huayllanay on their Ultimate Guide to Trekking, Walking, & Hiking. We even offer a number of treks in lesser known areas of the country, such as the Cordillera Blanca, where we were fortunate to trek to Laguna 69 in September 2012 with the help of our friends at Llanganuco Lodge.
As well as trekking, the varied and dramatic landscapes of the Andes and the rainforest afford all kinds of opportunities for sustainable adventure travel. In the Sacred Valley, activities such as kayaking on Waypo lake and mountain biking from the ancient agricultural testing site of Moray allow you to escape life for a moment. One of our new favorites is horseback riding in the Colca Canyon, which we will feature on our blog in the near future. Or spend a few nights at one of the many excellent jungle lodges in Manu or Tambopata and support the efforts of indigenous jungle communities and nature projects such as those at the Tambopata Research Center.
The opportunities for adventure are limitless, whether you are looking for incredible vistas, the thrill of the wind in your hair as you gallop through the rolling hills, or casting a line in a remote lagoon, Aracari strives to deliver experiences that live up to the expectations of true adventurers and at the same time stay committed to the effort that continues to unite ATTA members throughout the world.
