Condor Travel operates throughout Peru. This wonderful country has high levels of plant and animal diversity on its Pacific coast, the Andes Mountains and the Amazon rainforest.
Peru has 77 protected wildlands and 28 types of climates, which give rise to great biological richness. It’s also home to natural and cultural world heritage sites, including one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.
There are 77 recognized ethnic groups in Peru as well as 68 languages belonging to 16 ethno-linguistic families. After Spanish, our second language is Quechua.
Tourism is one of Peru’s main activities. Activities include tours to archaeological sites; ecotourism, especially in the Peruvian Amazon; cultural tourism in colonial cities; adventure tourism; beach tourism; and the ever-growing gastronomic tourism.

We aim to be a leading company in tourist service innovation and quality, recognized for our commitment to responsible development. We promote sustainable tourism at the destinations where we operate and look after the welfare of our employees, clients, partners, suppliers, and the communities we visit.
In 2007, we created the Condor Wings NGO to carry out sustainability projects. Condor Travel supports the families of porters on the Inca Trail living in the Mullak’as-Misminay community. In 2007, with support from the Regional Health Bureau (Dirección Regional de Salud, DIRESA), the Healthy Community project was developed to improve the quality of life of these families, which sparked the community’s interest in tourism. In 2008, we started an “inclusive business” project in Misminay, where we made significant donations in numerous training events and housing improvements, helping to make Misminay one of the main rural community tourism destinations in Peru today. In 2014, thanks to support from Condor Travel and the municipalities of Urubamba and Maras in Cusco, a project was started to build a water catchment gallery so local families have access to potable water.
Condor Travel seeks to achieve environmentally-sustainable tourism. We measure and mitigate our carbon footprint and we obtained a carbon neutral seal from the Green Initiative. Since 2013, we have offered our customers the opportunity to offset their carbon footprint while traveling by purchasing carbon credits equivalent to one ton of CO2, helping to preserve 10 square miles (25m²) of forest in Tambopata.
