Amarutrek Expeditions started operating in 2014, thanks to the initiative of Alberto and Darío, (who are natives from the Inca Trail).  They started their careers in Tourism as porters (due to the poor working conditions) Alberto and Dario decided to start a tour company.  One of our company’s goals is to better the treatment of porters, in regards,  as to working conditions, health insurance for their families and them, uniforms, safety and always maintaining trek and camp equipment and above all else, fair wages.  This is what sets us apart from other tour companies that operate in Cusco.  We have roots embedded as porters, have a passion to protect our beautiful natural surroundings and know the local communities and its wonderful people.  This sets Amarutrek Expeditions apart from the rest.
