JOEL CARDENAS, FOUNDER

For Joel, Southern Peru Explorers brings together three of the things he values most: exposing others to the astounding natural beauty of Peru, honoring the rich Incan culture of the region, and bringing together people from all over the world for mutual learning and fun.

Joel, who is fluent in Spanish, Quechua, and English, is a graduate of the Universidad San Antonio ABAD, in Cusco, with a degree in tourism. Immediately after graduation, he founded his company with the intention of providing visitors with a distinctly different travel experience, drawing upon his own travels throughout Europe and South America.

Born in the shadow of Machu Picchu, his appreciation of the land dates back to childhood, when he would visit his grandparents home in the mountains. “I loved waking up in the morning to see the snow-capped mountains, the lakes and amazing views,” he recalls. “When participants on our treks are surrounded by beauty, it makes them forget about the stress of everyday life and enjoy each moment.”

As a photographer, who studied at Lima Imagen, he is able to showcase his unique esthetic sense in the company’s videos and vibrant visual images. While nothing can completely capture the arresting beauty participants will see on his company’s tours, he certainly comes close.
