I recommend the Salkantay trek, as an experience that everyone should experience in their lifetime - incredible landscape.
It was my first time to Peru and I don't speak Spanish - as a result I was often confused about logistics and unclear about what was an "add-on" to the experience and what was included. Hindsight 20/20 I wish I ... Continue Reading
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger
Expect half your party to get sick or hurt. Don't overestimate your capabilities and be prepared for the altitude the best you can.
I used to live at higher altitude so I thought I didn't need to pack meds. I got so sick I couldn't even see straight. Thankfully my group mates took care of me. Really great people ... Continue Reading
Salkantay trek has amazing scenery!. The food cooked by chefs was delicious. Make sure to have lots of coco leaves and tea to keep altitude sickness at bay! .
Second day was the hardest but the most rewarding. The trick is to go slow and at your own pace.
The walk up to the glacier lake was tough ... Continue Reading

We saw a glacier lake in which I took a swim. We saw the peak of Salkantay mountain and witnessed a huge avalanche in the distance. We saw the jungle and enjoyed the flora and fauna. The ... Continue Reading
It won’t be that easy they said
Salkantay trek was an incredible journey to share with my family and friends. Together we survived rain, cold, bugs, and ouchy muscles with a very fun group that quickly became close friends.
Watch out for altitude sickness and make sure to drink lots of water. The guide was vigilant to make sure everyone was comfortable and voiced their ... Continue Reading
Tough but fun
5 days of exhaustion but good times. Day one was chilled, camped in a beautiful valley and hiked up to a super beautiful lagoon.
The walk up is an hour of steep slog. Day two was crazy hard, nothing could have prepared me for the intense 12 hours of steep ups send steep downs. Views amazing along the way ... Continue Reading
This was my first experience trekking and camping. I really enjoyed this trip and had so much fun getting to know other group members.
I don't think the hiking was as arduous or difficult as I expected. However, the second day was very long and many people in the group experienced altitude sickness and foot and joint pains, myself ... Continue Reading

This adventure was well worthy the money, the time and the sweat. In just four days our group of 17 went from strangers to friends in no time, bonding over the long days and early mornings while trekking miles and miles over mountains and under tunnels.
With the help of our spectacular guides, I will take the memories of ... Continue Reading
Move your lazy legs!!!
Every tour company is walking the same trail - it's the guides that really make the difference from one company to the next.
Paul, Jorge and Lisette were not only knowledgeable about the trail and its history, but also hilarious and thoroughly amusing the entire time. Even when we were beyond tired and cranky, they were able to lighten ... Continue Reading

While at first I wanted to take the train to Machu Picchu, my boyfriend convinced me that the only way to get there should be to do the hike - best decision ever.
From the amazing and magical trail, to the companionship of new and old friends (3 of us from MD and 2 from PA), and the ... Continue Reading

Every day presented new challenges but amazing views and great memories. This trip was only possible with the encouragement of great friends and the best guides. No matter how tired I was arriving to camp each day, I never ... Continue Reading

Ezekiel, the head chef, made amazing food everyday in a very primitive, make shift kitchen. Tea time was a great time for us to share our stories amongst ... Continue Reading
