When you contact one of our team, you´ll receive a prompt response with all the information you need to plan your trip. Don't be afraid to ask them anything you want, as we´ll always be there to answer your questions.

Want something more personalized? No problem. Let us know what you want, and we'll do everything we can to make your vacation exactly what you want it to be. Personalized trips are what we do best.

So, without further ado, let's get to know the founder and the rest of the team a little bit better.

Edgar and the team have won various awards and have become one of the leading tour operators in the whole of Peru.
Edgar Catunta. Manager and Founder


Edgar, manager and founder of Salkantay Trekking, was born in Cusco. With a degree in Administrative Sciences and Tourism from the National University of San Antonio Abad del Cusco (UNSAAC), he has always focused on offering unique and exclusive services to each person. In this way, he has achieved success in the main route led by Salkantay Trekking: Inca Trail - Salkantay - Machu Picchu, with its private camps: Sky Camp in Soraypampa, Andean Huts in Chaullay, Jungle Domes in Lucmabamba and the recent and exclusive Mountain Sky View in Collpapampa.

He founded Salkantay Trekking in 2012. Under his leadership, the company has grown to become the best Adventure Tourism travel agency, receiving recognition as Best Tour Operator in the Cusco Region in 2016.

Edgar has traveled to many countries, including Spain, the United States, Nepal, Chile, Bolivia, and Brazil, which has helped him to study services in other parts of the world and use the best aspects as a combination for Salkantay Trekking, resulting in a very high quality and personalized product.

"After many research works and courses related to the tourism sector and business administration, the knowledge acquired pushed me to explore and manifest my experiences, giving birth to this beautiful project called: SALKANTAY TREKKKING."

What makes these trips different?

We believe that a vacation should be more than a hotel room, a flight and a rental car. It should be more than the sum of its parts. We also believe a challenge can help you grow and a trip can stir the soul. We create journeys worth taking - for the traveler, for the host and for the world.
