Wherever our trips take us, we aim to carry with us our responsible attitudes. This encompasses a way of traveling which is respectful and beneficial to locals, their cultures and environments. We prefer to use public transportation when available, to stay overnight and share meals in the homes of local families, to travel in small groups, and to educate others about sustainable tourism. Following these steps as a small company, we are hopeful we will make big differences in the lives of local people we meet along the way. Our main goal is to offer an exciting and unique adventure while enriching the lives of the people we meet
Our main goal, is to enrich people’s life making them live an interactive and unique trip, forgetting about the prejudices, building an understanding and a new world being more careful, and at the same time spending a life time experience.

Tierras Vivas works to support the Peruvian Andean communities of Pilcobamba and Rallan, near Cusco. Our travelers have the opportunity to get to know the local people, and to understand their rich cultural history. Your participation on a Tierras Vivas trip will contribute to supporting the local economies of these communities and help to develop a cross-cultural understanding.
In some of the places we visit we are our own operators, but on many of our trips, Tierras Vivas works with highly reputable local operators. These local partners are passionate and enthusiastic about the places they operate in, and offer the same high standards as we aim to provide. By working closely with these local companies, we are best able to return money back into the local economies where we travel with our groups.
This may sound unusual coming from a travel company, but it is important that you understand our style of travel.
Tierras Vivas operates in a way that fully appreciates and respects cultures and lifestyles very different from your own. While striving to provide you the very best holiday possible, we do not shield you from the cultural differences, inefficiencies and frustrations that are a part life in the places we visit. Indeed, our emphasis is on getting out there and experiencing the real world. Please bear this in mind when choosing between our travel styles and trip options.
