In 2007, Inca Trail Expeditions founder Elmer Caballero led his first group of Trekking in the Sacred Valley circuit, taking more than 20 people to one of the most unforgettable treks in Cusco, we refer to the mythical Inca trail to Machu Picchu.
It was a walk full of adventures, where you can enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Andes, and the jungles of the cloud forests. It was there that he decided to found the travel agency dedicated to the organization of expeditions in small groups, with the highest quality services. For this he formed a working group trained in the organization of the different high mountain tours, giving his greatest passion for hiking little traveled trails. From the beginning, the main reason was the comfort and the authentic experiences, told by the local inhabitants.
All our guides started a great network of friends with those who came on vacation to Cusco, where they took our services to visit Machu Picchu. Inca trail Expeditions was founded after having formed the Andean Great Treks group.
Today, after 15 years in the tourism market, we continue to maintain the essence of our company, which is reflected in the level of satisfaction expressed by our customers, we have also grown as a company, founding new brands, and generating more jobs for our compatriots currently work for us cooks, muleteers, drivers, guides, and owners of local hotels, who feel very happy to work for the Andean Great Treks group.
On that trip, it soon became evident that community buy-in and shared value is vital for the long-term protection of the natural world. The trip planted a seed that positive impact travel treads an incredibly complex and fine line but one that is essential for communities, nature, and our planet’s health.
One of our greatest concerns is caring for the environment, for which we have developed reforestation activities, and training in care and protection of the planet, reducing the use of plastics, optimal use of renewable energy, and protection of parks and nature reserves where we carry out our tourism activities.
