Valentin's loves his country and it was a pleasure to have him as a guide. He is so passionate and funny. His whole staff was excellent and I loved all of the places he brought us throughout the Sacred Valley! I would use him again and again while exploring the beautiful country of Peru.

I am just back from a journey in Ecuador and very grateful to David, Yaacov, Susannah and Cristina to have made of this trip an unforgettable experience. I am still dreaming of the forest and feeling the energy of the beautiful people who hosted us with such an open heart. A life changing experience and an inspiration to make change a reality.

An amazing company led by the best people. If you are traveling to Cusco/Machupicchu/The Sacred Valley, you will not find a team of people more knowledgeable and friendly. Valentin, Nilton, and Herlin made our trip the most special! We will miss you guys!

Stride Review

Born in 1996 out of a partnership between the indigenous Achuar people of the Ecuadorian rainforest and an American couple – Bill and Lynne Twist – Pachamama Journeys takes travelers into the rainforest to meet and engage with the Achuar and learn and spread the word about their struggle for survival.   

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

This is the real deal – if you’re looking for an adventurous, eco-sensitive trip that goes beyond the norm, Pachamama Journeys fills the bill. 

Who Travels With Them?

Travelers looking for a truly transformative, culturally enlightening personal experience.

Where Do They Operate?

The Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, which is at the locus of the tensions between indigenous peoples and industrial development. 

How Does It Work?

The indigenous Achuar tribe, threatened by oil development in the Ecuadorian Amazon, has invited Pachamama Journeys travelers to visit and spend time in their villages to gain a better understanding of their way of life and, they hope, boost their hopes of survival. 

Why Travel With Them? 

If you want to immerse yourself in the culture of the rainforest and perhaps learn to see the world in a different light, there’s no better way to do it. The journeys also help fund ecotourism projects that help preserve indigenous communities and offer alternatives to selling off their land to oil companies.
