G Adventures relaunches Peru tours

G Adventures has relaunched tour operations in Peru following the reopening of Machu Picchu on Feb. 15.

Starting March 1, G Adventures says tours are restarting in order to support the local communities and businesses in Peru that heavily rely on tourism for income.

The adventure tour operator says minor adjustments will be made to itineraries in areas such as Puno while the company monitors the situation. Most itineraries will run as normal.

Machu Picchu had been closed due to social and political unrest in Peru.

“The last few months have been very challenging in Peru, with local communities and businesses who were pushing to get started following the pandemic being hit with another tourism dip,” said Sarah Miginiac, G Adventures’ general manager for Latin America. “Our team on the ground has been monitoring the situation closely, including the reopening of Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail, to ensure we could relaunch as quickly as possible once safe to do so.”

G Adventures currently offers 17 itineraries in Peru.
