You may have noticed that Green Tracks offers several different ecotourism package options for travel to Peru. Why Peru? In short, Peru is one of the most astonishing countries on earth. It features such diverse geographic extremes that you will feel like you can't possibly be in the same country as you explore new sites. A total of 103 ecological zones have been categorized on our planet. Did you know that Peru hosts 83 of them?
Peru is the third largest country in South America. It can be broken up geographically into three regions, which are the Andes Mountains, the Amazonian lowlands, and the coast. Peru is home to approximately 25 million people, and 43 percent of this population are indigenous. The majority of Peruvians live in the highlands and only six percent inhabit the Amazonian lowlands, even though that region covers more than 50 percent of the country. Quechua is the main language spoken.
Approximately 50 national parks, sanctuaries, and reserve systems protect about five percent of Peru. More than half of Peru is Amazonian jungle. The southern Peruvian Amazon is where you will find the Manu National Park, Manu Biosphere Reserve, and Tambopata-Candamo Reserve. The city of Iquitos provides a gateway of access to the northern region of Peruvian rainforest where you'll find the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
Green Tracks offers Peru ecotours to the Manu region and the Tambopata-Candamo Reserve. You can also go with us on an exciting expedition up the famous Inca Trail all the way to the city of Machu Picchu. You won't want to miss a stay at the Inca capital of Cusco, where you'll see original stonework done by the Incas and the beautiful colonial architecture from the Spaniards. We also offer trips to northern Peru, where you can visit archaeologically rich cities such as Chiclayo, Chachapoyas and Trujillo.
