Description

What is True Wellness? For us, True Wellness is not only a state of physical, mental and social health, but it involves a commitment to the conservation of both native communities and the environment. A True Wellness trip is a journey with purpose, where you will not only find wellness and health for yourself, but also for everyone else. It is a combination of regenerative tourism and wellness tourism. We have carefully curated a collection of experiences focused on exploring the ancient Andean wisdom and worldview, while finding your inner balance and creating positive impact at the destinations. We want travelers to discover community tourism initiatives in impressive natural environments, recharge energies through yoga, meditation and ancestral Andean ceremonies and taste some of the nurishing Peruvian “superfoods” that Mother Earth provides us.
