Travel designers since 1977

For over four decades we have been exploring Peru, gaining a deeper knowledge and creating personalized experiences for our travelers. An increased interest from our clients made it possible to start our own operations in Argentina and Chile in 2013. We consider ourselves to be an old start-up company as we are constantly changing, pivoting, rethinking and tinkering. Many of our journeys include an element of sustainable tourism, aiming to make a positive impact on society, the environment and the economy. Setours today is still a Peruvian-Austrian family-run travel designer and from 2017 have grown into a talented cosmopolitan team across 2 continents, driven by passion, attention to detail and a love for our destinations.

Designing our next adventure to Tolar Grande in the Argentine ‘Puna’ . . Tolar Grande is a small mining village (at 3500 masl) amid the red and ocher hills of northwestern Argentina. With its ocher-colored canyons, salt crusts, hot springs and turquoise lagoons, Tolar Grande is a treasure hidden in the middle of the Argentine northwest. To get there, conveniently plan an entire day of travel from Salta. It can only be reached in a four-wheel drive vehicle because the roads are in poor condition. . . Tolar Grande was once founded by Spanish conquerors when the surrounding mines were still in full operation. Today it hardly reach more than hundred inhabitants. There is only one accommodation, the 6-room Hoteria Casa Andina, managed by the local community. But if you like off-the-beaten-path and extraordinary landscapes, Tolar Grande is the right choice. You can go there on your own, but you should take some precautions: GPS, a good map and auto mechanics knowledge if you have a breakdown you won’t be able to find some aid within several kilometers. Avoid the rainy season (JAN-MAR) take pictures of the famous lagoon Ojo del Mar, the symbol of Tolar Grande, when the weather is fine. . . @hadrienhanse (except the last one that come from our archives) . . . . #tolargrande #puna #hiddentreasures #ojosdelmar #viajandoarg #travelfromhome #naturephotography #ouotdoorphotographer #punaargentina #photographylovers #travelphotographer #argentinaphotosafari #punaargentina #setourstips #norteargentino @ruterosargentinos @argentinaoffroad @argentina.salvaje @igers_argentina @visitargentina @photodrone.arg @argentina.travel @arg.photos

El hombre y el mar en armonia . Esta foto de Huanchaco Trujillo, refleja la armonia que puede existir entre el hombre y el mar. Los pescadores de esta pequeña localidad al norte del Perú todavía conservan el uso del caballito de totora (junco) en sus jornadas de pesca artesanal. Como las piezas del @museolarco muestran es una tradición que ya practicaban los Chimú (800 – 1300 DC) y antes los Mochica (1-800 DC). Protejamos nuestros mares y antiguas tradiciones, reduciendo el uso de plástico y un ceviche fresco en el BigBen disfrutando de la vista del mar) . . The man and the sea (a balanced relationship) . . This photo of Huachaco Trujillo reflects the harmony that can exist between man and the sea. The fishermen of this small town in northern Peru still use the ‘caballito de totora’ (reed boat) for artisanal fishing. As the pieces of the @museolarco show it is a tradition that the Chimú (800 - 1300 AD) and before the Mochica (1-800 AD) already practiced. We can protect our sea and ancient traditions by reducing the use of plastic and.... enjoy a nice fresh "ceviche" (made with raw fish at BigBen overlooking the sea) . . . #caballitosdetotora #huanchacotrujillo #museolarco @museolarco #oceanoslimpios #BreakFreeFromPlastic #plastics #plasticpollution #ocean #marinelife #seabird @oceana_peru #chimu #mochica #marperuano #conservemos #oceanopacifico #culturasustentable #regenarativetourism #juntospornaturaleza #conservamospornaturaleza #setourstips #soyecologico #AcuerdoDeEscazú #protectoceans #protectoceanlife #protectoceanbiodiversity #huanchacobeach #huanchacotrujillo #setourstips

The Mother of the Sea . . Este documental de Alfredo Pourailly fue seleccionado como finalista en la "Competencia Nacional del Festival de Cine de Medio ambiente y Vida Salvaje" @SantiagoWildFest. . . No se nos hubiera ocurrido pensar en los paralelos de Groenlandia y Cabo de Hornos (en Chile). El documental se inicia con el relato de un mito groenlandés que se vuelve tremendamente real ante las amenazas medioambientales que se viven al otro extremo del planeta. Es imposible que los testimonios de sus habitantes acompañados de las imágenes de sus mares y ecosistemas en peligro no lleguen a la conciencia del espectador. No se pierdan la versión completa. Disponible en la cuenta Youtube del organizador (@laderasur) . . https://bit.ly/2X30TfP . . This documentary by Alfredo Pourailly was selected as finalist in the first edition of the "Environment and Wildlife Film Festival" @SantiagoWildFest. . . Before the film we couldn't have imagined that Greenland and Cape Horn (in Chile) could have something in common. The documentary begins with the story of a myth in Greenland that becomes a metaphor if we see the environmental threats that are experienced at the other end of the planet. . . The testimonies of their inhabitants accompanied by the images of their seas and ecosystems in danger reach the spectator's awareness. . .  Watch the full version on the organizer's Youtube account (@laderasur) . . . . . #santiagowildfest #chilesustentable #cambioclimatico #oceanachile #yoamoviajarporchile #florayfaunachilena #culturasustentable #regenarativetourism #juntospornaturaleza #conservamospornaturaleza #setourstips #soyecologico #themotherofthesea #cinedelbueno #cinechileno #chiledenorteasur #chileadicto #inspiradosporlanaturaleza #wildlifechile  #laderasur @laderasur @inspiradosporlanaturaleza @jacksonwildorg @chilenaturecl @mostremoschile @paiscircular @ondamedia.cl @ecoturismogenuino @santiagowildfest @oceana_cl

"Trees are like poems the earth writes upon the sky" . . The thick trunks and branches concentrated in the crown make the appearance of ‘Aracauria Tree’ a distinctive one. Without a doubt, is the most outstanding species of flora in the Araucania Region in Chile. The Nahuelbuta National Park, not far from the cities of Angol and Canete (both conveniently connected by road from Temuco and Concepcion) is home to extensive forests of Araucarias reaching up to 50 meters high. This ancient tree (some aging up 1200 years) is considered sacred by the Mapuche people and is endemic to Chile and Argentina. This species is still classified as vulnerable as its place of origin is threatened by frequent fires, volcanic eruptions and deforestation. . . @larayav . . . . #parquenacionalnahuelbuta #angol #chileanlandscapes #natureislife #weloveourplanet🌍 #chilephotography #chileanandeanmountains #getoutsideandexplore #picfair #chileanandes #instanature #instagramworthyshots #mostremoschile #transformationaltravel #setourstips #araucaria #araucariachile #araucariatree #araucariasmilenarias #ancienttrees
