Peruvian Sunrise promotes responsible travel to Peru, tourism that respects our wonderful ecosystem, with minimal impact on the environment and local culture, as well as generating employment and income for the local communities.
For some time now people and companies have increasingly begun to give more importance to the issue of environmental care and sustainability, as it is known that our planet is already suffering and we can see it through climate change, such as water shortage, droughts, floods, the deterioration of our forests, the melting of the poles and even the extinction of wildlife.
In fact, this has also carried over into the field of travel and more and more tourism companies in the world are embracing sustainable travel experiences.
Sustainable travel is based on developing its activities, trying to minimize the impact on the environment, in other words, responsible travel.
Likewise, travelers are becoming more travel responsible and are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, help the local economy, respect animals and even take actions of change such as avoiding the use of plastic.
For this reason, we are currently in the process of obtaining the Travelife Certification.
This will help us to make the company more sustainable, improve the quality of our services, have more satisfied customers, improve the quality of life of local communities and the environmental quality of our destinations.
Peruvian Sunrise is a modern receptive travel agency and tour operator that specializes in sales, booking and operations of tourist travel that provides high quality services, and our commitment to Sustainability is:
- Create innovative and sustainable experiences that have a positive impact on destinations and customers.

Urpis de Antaquillka
Leave conventional tours aside and get to know the cultural richness of the Cuper Bajo community in depth.
Cuper Bajo is an Andean community located 1 hour from Cuzco. In 2019, a mother from this community, Roxana Paucar, realized all the cultural richness they had to show the world, as well as their knowledge and skills for textile inherited from Inca times, and that they could help bring bread to their home and give education to their children.
She began to teach her neighbors and the other women in her community, empowering and organizing them to create an association called Urpis de Antaquillka.
Although the pandemic affected them greatly, the strength and affection that exists in this town has allowed them to give their all to continue giving a warm welcome to visitors and creating their excellent quality textile products. In addition, they make walks with llamas along the beautiful Piuray lagoon, from where they have amazing panoramic views; tours of the archaeological ruins, perform an Andean marriage with a local priest and typical costumes, as well as the option to enjoy a delicious meal made with ingredients from the area. Truly a rewarding experience for the soul.
And would you like to meet in person the women of this community who, with much affection, will open the doors of this small but cozy little town in the Andes?
If so, the community offers these activities to visitors:

You buy We plant
Help us plant a better future
The social responsibility program called “You buy, we plant” of Pachamama Raymi aims to help preserve the environment, but also to have a socio-economic impact by creating opportunities for people in poor areas of Peru. This program consists of planting trees thanks to donations from companies, which can be of fruits and vegetables or grass. In our case, Peruvian Sunrise has planted 800 trees through donations.
If you would like to know more about this project and help us to harvest a better future, we invite you to read this article.
Before the pandemic, our Peruvian Sunrise team used to go to schools in low-income areas to provide basic supplies and gifts to children. We really hope soon to be able to return to these activities that allow us to bring a little joy and hope to the little ones.
Below, we share with you a short video of an activity we did a few years ago.
