G Adventures and Travel Weekly are searching for responsible travel agents in a competition supporting sustainable tourism.
The winner will be appointed Responsible Travel Ambassador and sent on assignment to Peru to experience G Adventures’ Inca Discovery – Lares tour. The eight-day trip from Lima to Cusco takes in the road less travelled to Machu Picchu, known as the Lares Trek. The three-day hike is an alternative to the classic Inca Trail.
On the trip, travellers can experience projects established by Planeterra, a foundation set up by G Adventures to support sustainable travel and livelihoods in local communities.
Sites visited include two new projects: a community-owned campsite where travellers stay, and the Planeterra-supported Parwa community restaurant in Huchuy Qosqo, an indigenous village in the Sacred Valley.
