RUTAHSA ADVENTURES is pleased to announce its partnership with EXPLORANDES, Peru's oldest and most respected provider of eco-adventure and cultural travel experiences. EXPLORANDES has over 25 years of experience guiding visitors on the Inka Trail and to the famous archeological sites of Peru, trekking in the high Andes, rafting the spectacular whitewater gorges of the Apurimac and Tambopata rivers, exploring the incredibly varied biota of the Amazonian rainforest, and many other wonderful adventures.

Since 1998 we of Rutahsa have had the opportunity to use Explorandes services, and to meet and work with their president and other personnel. We have found all of Explorandes people to be highly qualified, experienced, and efficient. And equally important, we have found them to be of a philosophy we admire: strongly motivated to promote environmentally and culturally sensitive tourism.

We are happy to promote Explorandes travel offerings to the independent traveler. Explorandes has developed a wide range of adventure, soft adventure, cultural, and ecotourism itineraries. Many of these trips are set up on a schedule with fixed departures several times a year. This enables independent travelers to sign on to the trip that appeals to them the most, coincides with their travel schedule, and fits their pocketbook! We recommend you visit Explorandes informative website, and check out the more than sixty different exciting Explorandes itineraries, using the link below.

For Peru travelers who wish to participate in any of Explorandes fixed departure trips, Rutahsa Adventures can book the trip (or trips) of your choice at a discount price, typically 10% off. All you have to do is visit Explorandes website, select the trip that is perfect for you, then use your "back" key to return to this page and e-mail us your request.

"It was a FANTASTIC trip. I can not say enough about Explorandes. Their organization and quality of service were terrific. I will use them again. Thanks for helping me set up the trip. You are right-- Peru is an amazing country and 12 days was not nearly enough." --Leslie Bass, June 2005
