Our founders are a couple of Peruvians passionate for adventure and culture, who have been devoted to explore each destination deep in and taking the most out of every adventure. Today these are the main source of inspiration for designing our journeys.
Piero Vellutino, of the family that pioneered white-water rafting in Peru, has dedicated himself to the world of adventure sports and travel for over 20 years. After working as a whitewater and trekking guide all over the world, Piero decided to unite his diverse talents and experiences and form Terra Explorer Peru, to offer the world amazing, unique, authentic trips in his home country.
My story begins when I got to Cusco at age of 19, with my soul as the one of a young journalist. So, I get know magical places, ancient communities, scenes full of history that impressed and inspired me for the rest of my life. Piero is my partner, best friend and father of my 3 children. We started this great project together, Terra Explorer Peru, where we decide to put the best of our experiences and visions, to operate different trips that are fun, adventurous and in turn meet our strong environmental and social commitment.
I feel proud, after so many years and experience, to keep showing my country, with a unique style and above all, with the same encouragement since the very first day. A magical Peru, my Peru to the world!
