He also had the best recommendations for us for small things like when to take the bus up to Machu Picchu, go to the hot springs, etc.
Our other ... Continue Reading

A trek on the wild side

OMG. This is not a trek for the weak hearted ! It is quite beautiful and I enjoyed myself thoroughly, but I was not prepared for how much physical and mental strength I needed to commit to completing this trek. Of course, this was my first trek of any kind, and at high altitude I think that added another variable, ... Continue Reading

Plot Twist – Waldo finds himself

I'd like to give a shout out to Google for recommending Inca Trail Reservations. Upon booking this trip, I had no idea what to expect. To sum it up, this is five-star camping at its finest. Ramiro exceeded expectations with his energetic and Sherpa-like personality.
Huge thanks to Raul for the incredible food. Seriously, the food was one of ... Continue Reading

Puma pride

So, my story goes like this... One cold day in Edmonton, Alberta, my (very adventurous) best friend (very easily) convinced me to join her on an epic 4 day, 3 night trek to Machu Picchu.

The trek itself an ... Continue Reading

Trek to Machu Pichu

Welcome adventures,
Over four days, our group, the Pumas, had a great experience hiking through the mountains experiencing many different things. We experienced our journey through the Sacred Valley in desert like conditions which gave way to more jungle type terrain. We climbed up a pass challenging our minds and bodies and then descended down and we arrived at ... Continue Reading
