Peru Inika Adventures (PIA) has announced that its first Russian adventure for tourists in the Amazon Basin is scheduled to open in late 2018.
The company announced on Thursday that it would launch a new Russian adventure in the country’s south, starting from May, with the first five trips planned to be on foot.
“We are very excited to announce that we will be opening a Russian adventure at the same time as our new Peru Inkbak adventure in Peru,” the company said in a statement.
“It will be a first in our history and will be our first ever adventure in Latin America.”
The PIA website did not give an exact location for the trip, but it will be in the same area of the Amazon basin as the Amazon jungle.
It will be the first time that a Russian travel agency has ventured into Peru.
The first of the five trips will take place in June.
The remaining five trips in the first month will be on horseback.
The Pia adventure will be led by Russian travel agent and author Pavel Kiselev, who previously led the Moscow trip of Russia’s former President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian trip will be based in Peru’s northern Amazon basin, and the PIA’s Russian trips are all aimed at offering foreign visitors a unique experience of the region.
“Our first Russian trip to Peru will bring us to a place that is still considered a world heritage site, and we will have a chance to learn about the Amazon and its unique history,” said Kisevel in a press release.PIA was founded in 2008 by Kiseval, who is also a Russian national, and his brother Nikolai.
He has been traveling around Peru since 2015 and has visited Peru twice before.
