Traveling is always enriching, it involves our five senses, and it’s the perfect source of nourishment for the soul. For us, adventure tourism is going to remote places, exploring its nature, and authentically sharing with its people, culture, and traditions.

To know more about what adventure tourism is and how we travel in Terra Explorer, you must be willing to unpack your explorer’s heart and leave the tourist one behind.

What is adventure tourism?

For us, it’s all about discovering the inaccessible, touching the remote, and becoming a part of it. Adventure tourism requires physical outdoor activities to get to places we would not otherwise have the opportunity to access. It will always respond to different levels of difficulty, thus adjusting to the physical level of each traveler.

Therefore, adventure tourism is not exclusive for adrenaline lovers, but it is also perfect for those who enjoy exploring and discovering remote places through personalized travel experiences.

Here are some of our favorite activities:


In Terra Explorer, we offer adventure tourism in Cusco region through incredible walks to the most beautiful destinations of the ancient Inca empire.

We explore the Andes with hikes that last from one day to twelve, depending on the chosen trail. Explore the surroundings of the snowy Ausangate and Salkantay mountains, the eminent Inca Trail, the Choquequirao canyon, or the Huchuyqosqo archaeological complex, routes specially designed to escape the crowds. We offer you authentic and personalized hikes where luxury and comfort are an essential part of the experience.


We also invite you to explore Andean lakes through boats known as sea kayaks. In Terra Explorer, we offer you the experience of kayaking and bird watching, which consists of a visit to Huaypo, a beautiful lagoon perched on the heights of the Andes. From the water, you will be able to observe a great variety of wild and migratory birds and the breathtaking nature that surrounds this special place, like local farm fields and snowy mountains.

Following the excursion around the lagoon, on the shores of Huaypo, you can enjoy a delicious outdoor picnic in style, savoring the local flavors of Peruvian cuisine.

Mountain Biking

Ride through picturesque villages and farmlands in mountain bikes while enjoying the beautiful views of highland lagoons and snow-peaked mountains. You will breathe, feel, and take in the purest air of one of the best destinations in our beloved Peru, always accompanied by local experts. We invite you to try our custom mountain biking tours and choose the one that best suits your needs.
