About us

This material was collected for a travel guide, launched on CD in 2005. This has not had the exposure which we think it deserves, and we have decided to put it on the web. Naturally, of you wish to donate, we would be most grateful. We hope you enjoy this site, which is without doubt the deepest and most comprehensive travel guide available. If you want to travel in Peru, please make contact. This work was carried out in conjunction with the government of Peru, through its agency PROPERU.

The guides are written by people with a real enthusiasm for the country that they are studying. Our methodology is to recruit and train a team of nationals of the country in question, seeking out people who have real enthusiasm for life outdoors. Virtually all of the guides which we have produced deliver spin-off benefits, undergo upgrades and the like, so the connection which we make with this team tends to be lasting. The Trek!Peru team are shown below.
