The 2019 Education with a Destination Peru Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to extend further into the landscape and the natural habitat of the alpaca and the people that have nurtured these incredible creatures and fiber for countless years. The unforgettable experience begins October 21, 2019. Check out the full itinerary here.
Experience Accoyo and the Vicuña Chaccu
Join us as we visit three of the most famous alpaca herds in the world, including the farm that won the most championships at the International Alpaca Fiesta in 2018. For the first time in years, see Accoyo, the premier ranch of world-famous Peruvian alpaca breeder Don Julio Barreda, whose question, “What can you do for my people?”, inspired Quechua Benefit’s founding. Experience the Peru Tour exclusive of the Picotani Vicuña Chaccu.
“Peru is a most fascinating country; its people, alpacas, vicuñas, scenery, culture… Plenty of things made the trip unforgettable. Thanks to Quechua Benefit´s incredible Andean network, most of the time we were far away from general tourist amenities. We experienced things ordinary visitors never would come near. Doing all of this together with a wonderful group of international alpaca breeders meant that we learned a lot and also had such fun! I’ll definitely be back!”— Ann Marie Gerber-Santesson, Österlen Alpacka, Sweden
Amanda VandenBosch, an internationally famous alpaca judge, and Mike Safley, Quechua Benefit founder, will be leading the trip.
You can extend your stay with an optional trip to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
