Peru Family Experience - Cultural Immersion and Epic Adventure

Gravitate has been listening to what you want, a first-hand experience of local cultures and active adventure for the children. In August 2019, you’ll have your chance to join other families on a group trip to Peru, a unique experience your kids will always remember, no matter how old they get.

The Peru Family Experience is made for families with children 6+ years old. It’s a 9-day culture dive with active adventuring run by G-Adventures, a leader in authentic trips built for adventurers for all ages — trips that get you behind the scenes of other cultures and their lifestyles.

Your itinerary comes with included meals, private transport, guided adventures and many more activities, including hiking, biking, rafting and kayaking. In the chunks of free time you’ll get in each town, you can explore museums, local shopping or simply walk around and observe a different way of living.

Coveted Explorations

Remember when you were a kid flipping through the pages of a National Geographic magazine, amazed at what seemed like other worlds, imagining yourself supplanted right into each picture? In Peru, you and the kids won’t be in a National Geographic spread, but you will be the main characters of your own family adventure story.

Amazon Rainforest

Find yourselves on an unforgettable journey through the most biodiverse location on earth, the Amazon Rainforest. Seen by most only in scenes of a Hollywood movie, you’ll experience the Amazon River and Jungle in full uncut reality by foot and while drifting the slow current. Guided tours by expert naturalists ensure you’ll have close encounters with colorful birds, monkeys, amphibians and quite possibly, pink dolphins. You’ll even meet tribesmen and learn how they’ve survived for many generations sharing the jungle with these incredible animals using Amazonian medicinal plant life.

Machu Picchu

The Incas may have lacked a written language, but they didn’t lack astonishing architectural skills. What’s left today are the ruins of the powerful Inca empire, but even those leave an impression of mystery and awe on every visitor. You and the kids will embark on a trek into history where you’ll be level with the clouds, boots making imprints on the dewey grass that blankets the Andes.

Authentic Cultural Immersion in Cusco

The charming city of Cusco is proof that tourism need not blemish the heart and soul of historic empires. As the host of Machu Picchu, Cusco will be a main hub on your trip, serving as your portal into a new culture that presents a very unique energy and a cuisine to match. Between scheduled adventures, you may have a life-changing experience conversing, exploring, shopping and dining with the locals, getting an authentic glimpse of daily Peruvian life.

Giving Back, a Vacation With Purpose

On the 7th day of the trip, you and the kids will drop in at the G Adventures-supported Cusco Youth Drop-in Centre. Children of poor families are often forced to drop out of school, so it’s the mission of this centre to provide them guidance and support. Your visit will be a chance for your family to support local children by helping them with homework, serving them hot meals and participating in creative workshops such as leather-working and jewellery-making.

Though we’ve covered the main highpoints of the trip, it’s a sure thing you’ll improvise your own gems along the way that will forever become your family’s unique take on the Peru family experience.

G-Adventure’s ‘Peru Family Experience’ sells out every year, so if your family would enjoy this kind of Peruvian adventure and culture dive with the opportunity to give back, Gravitate Travel has reserved an entire group departure far in advance, for August of 2019.
