For 27 years GreenTracks has been known for being Amazon travel experts. Beside our interest in the natural world we have an interest in ancient cultures and history so we also offer Machu Picchu and Cuzco as a travel destinations.  Some people have started raising the issue of too many people at Machu Picchu, but it is still worth putting up with all those people, to have a once in a lifetime experience.

Peru is rich in ancient civilizations, history, archaeology and incredible geography. Northern Peru was home to several different pre-Inca civilizations and abounds with archaeology sites, still being excavated.

Only recently has Peru taken to opening up these areas to tourism.  Over the next few days and weeks we plan to expose you to a whole new old-world of travel possibilities. We have 22 inter-linked pages of historical, archaeological and travel/tour information.   So, get ready to expand your bucket list...

We’ll start with the basics and get more specific as we go.
