Lima Urban Adventures

Limat-shirtWelcome to Lima – the bustling urban capital of Peru. Over 8 million people call Lima home including those of us here in the Lima Urban Adventures office. As a part of the Urban Adventures network, we are excited to share a part of the Lima experience with you through our unique Lima tours. The ‘Lima Discovery’ walking tour is a great way to visit some of Lima’s cultural highlights spanning the centuries, and our ‘Pisco Making’ adventure will give you a hands-on experience in a typical market and teach you how to make the classic Peruvian cocktail, the Pisco Sour.

As with all Intrepid offices, here in Lima we have a strong focus on sustainability and responsible operation. Some of the initiatives we are proud of include: recycling, giving all of our tour leaders and employees reusable water bottles and bags, keeping the lights off in the office when there’s sufficient daylight, opening windows and using fans instead of air conditioning, and re-using as much of our paper as possible. We also assess our carbon impact two times per year, and we’re always on the lookout for new ways we can reduce our ecological footprint.

Our office is diverse with employees from Peru, France, and the United States. It is a fun team and everyone working here truly embodies the ‘Intrepid Spirit’. Over the past few years we have worked hard to create trips, and now Urban Adventures, which take travellers off the beaten track to create a hands-on cultural experience in a responsible and sustainable way. Whether this is visiting a local community or learning how to make a regional dish, our goal is to help make the world feel a little smaller by inspiring our travellers to experience a culture and its people in the most intrepid way possible – through local knowledge and local experience.
