UNORCAC, together with the indigenous communities, founded the community tour operator RUNA TUPARI, a phrase that in the native language, Quichua, means, "meeting the Indians."
In order to develop authentic and sustainable rural community tourism, we believe it is necessary to interact directly with the indigenous communities. We want the tourist to experience a unique lifestyle as well as an expanded world vision. This encounter will allow the visitor to experience direct contact with nature, share daily life with local people and have the opportunity to learn from them. In other words, a more human style of tourism, where authenticity and nature are the foundations.
We offer different kinds of excursions, that involve treks, community visits, horse-riding, (downhill) biking, Andean climbing and hikes in Intag's Cloud Forest, among many others, all of them guided by native guides.
Runa Tupari Native Travel hopes to contribute to the construction of a more fair and egalitarian intercultural society, reducing poverty levels, empowering people for self-management, expanding the democratic participation of the communities and strengthening their ancestral wisdom and social organization.
