About

Alpaca Expeditions was started by Raul Ccolque, who has lived in the Andes all his life and has worked on the Inca trail and on all the Treks to Macchupicchu both as a Porter and a Tour Guide since he was 18 years old. Alpaca Expeditions is locally owned and based in Cusco, Peru. We aim to provide the best and most genuine tour of the Andes. We cater for all your needs and through our range of different tours, we are sure that we can find a tour that suits whatever you desire.

One of the primary goals of Andean Expeditions is to support local community through providing jobs in the company, particularly for the Porters, and to built some sustainable schools for the Andean kids. Raul has lived in the Andes his entire life. He was born in a small village called Seque Raccay (meaning Chicha village), which rests 3600 metres above sea level. Growing up in a small Kechuan village ignited his passion for his Incan heritage and his love of hiking in the surrounding mountains. Raul went to a Kechua speaking Elementary and High School in his local village. He then went on to continue his studies at Cusco University where he studied Tourism.
