Each Acanela tour is designed around an artisan. These artisans have incredible talents and abilities in diverse areas such as culinary arts, adventure guiding, or art & design - but lack the resources to monetize their skills. Our mission is to discover these men and women, help them develop as individuals, and empower them to build their own sustainable business enterprises. Each Acanela expedition incorporates instructional classes or expert services from these local artists. By traveling with Acanela, you give back to those who need it most.

Many tourists flock to Peru’s most popular wonder, Machu Picchu. This is for good reason, as Machu Picchu is one of the most inspiring and beautiful sites in the world as well as one of the 7 Wonders of the World. However, much of the Northern regions of Peru go unexplored. If travelers only knew the many amazing sites left unseen, I’m sure they would want to add a week or two on to their Peru Expedition.
