  • Our licensed offices in the U.S. and Cusco are available 24/7 to offer superior, personal customer service. There is no delay in booking or addressing concerns.(Earthbound Adventures is a Delaware corporation)

Vast, first-hand trekking experience

Unlike other tour operators, Earthbound Adventures founder Tony Cohen hiked the South American continent for four years straight, then spent the next three years touring Canada, Alaska, and Southeast Asia. He has been in your boots and knows what trekkers want and need.

Porters treated as experienced professionals

  • Our porters wages are above industry standards.
  • We are the only company that provides special carrying frames and state-of-the-art equipment for the porters comfort and safety.
  • We guarantee the number of porters is sufficient for the group size.

First to offer Inca Trail alternatives
Earthbound Adventures was the first to offer alternatives to the Inca Trail, which gives hikers a choice of less-traveled paths for a more intimate, genuine taste of the amazing Peruvian landscape and culture.

Dedicated to eco-tourism
To offset the carbon footprint of international air travel, Earthbound Adventures plants 30 trees for each trekker. We’re the only company that does this. We strictly limit the number of trips and the size of the groups to lessen the impact on the fragile ecosystems.
