Amazonas Explorer - A different approach

Based in Cusco, near Machu Picchu, Amazonas Explorer offers the best Inca Trail and alternative Trekking routes, Rafting, Canoeing, Mountain Biking, Horse Riding, Cultural and Family Tours, Expeditions, Holidays, Vacations and Adventures in Peru and throughout Central and South America.

Amazonas Explorer's "Philosophy" is to combine a genuinely alternative adventure experience, with the best historical and cultural attractions in a "style" that is wonderfully unique.

An Amazonas Explorer “Alternative Adventure” does not mean having to "rough it". We believe in the finer things in life and as our guests, we want your time with us to be as luxurious, relaxing and enjoyable as possible - after all, it is your holiday.

We have spent many years  trying to develop different itineraries from the run of the mill trips that are generally available, for example our Inca trail is 5 days instead of the standard  4, giving a far better experience, Choquequirao is not an in out slap dash trip but 10 days of trekking actually ending at Machu Picchu, see this article featured in the New York Times for more  info or click here .

We pride ourselves on the attention to detail and the quality of our staff and equipment, for example our mountain biking adventures are all on full suspension Kona mountain bikes worth $2,000 USD and we have a fleet of over 50.

All in all if you want a different, high quality adventure then you have come to the right place.
