G Adventures has cancelled tours to Peru until next month amid growing unrest in the country.

The move comes as the UK Foreign Office announced tourist entry to Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail has been suspended and warned travel in some parts of the country may not be possible.

G Adventures said: “Due to political unrest, parts of Peru are seeing protests, road blockages and closures which are making it impossible to run many trips as planned, and the state of emergency has been extended across the country.

“As a result, and in the interests of traveller safety, we will be cancelling all trips starting in Peru up to, and including, 5 February, 2023. 

“We are currently in the process of advising travellers on affected departures of the situation in Peru. We understand how disappointing this news will be, so we will be working with them to book their next adventure, and are offering either a full refund or future travel credit for fully paid passengers. 

“All travellers currently on the ground in Peru are safe, and we are working to re-route itineraries as needed to avoid areas of protest until we can get them safely home.

“We are in communication with all travellers currently in Peru to ensure their onward travels are as smooth as possible.” 

The FCDO has updated its advice to say: “Machu Picchu tourist site has been closed temporarily. The Inca Trail has also been suspended.”

It also warns protests are unpredictable and can escalate quickly and include violence.

The FCDO advice adds: “Travellers arriving in Peru should be aware that travel to some parts of the country may not be possible.

“Protests may cause travel disruption, including with road blockades, suspension of train services (including trains to/from Machu Picchu) and airport closures in different parts of the country.”
