La Paz on Foot’s approach to travel, ecotourism and experiential education was inspired by the complex natural and cultural history of the cultures and ecosystems that characterize the Central Andes region. From the dry Pacific coast to the highland valleys and peaks such as Pico Austria and Tuni Condoriri, north toward Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, south toward the Uyuni Salt Flats and Patagonia and east into the vast wetlands and tropical rainforests of the Amazon and Rio de la Plata watersheds, to this day the human and ecological communities here are tightly connected.
We have applied these ancient connections to our company’s design and every day we work with clients, communities, guides, restaurants, hotels, drivers and other links in the chains of an emergent network of responsible adventure travel operators in the region. Our efforts to share the diverse ecoregions of the Central Andes with our clients in a sustainable way contributes to the resilience of this part of the world, one that is rich in natural and cultural patrimony and, in many ways, vulnerable to global challenges such as climate change and urbanization.
