Sacred Inca temple

The Salkantay Trail was great. The hike on the second day up to 4400m was exhausting but equally as exciting. Seeing the Salkantay glassier up close was really nice and definitely worth the effort. The other days were less hard but still offered a lot of great landscapes, hikes and adventures.
I'm looking forward to get up to Machu ... Continue Reading

Die Reise eines Igels

Auf der Suche nach dem besten Platz für einem Igel ging es 4 Tage duch die Anden. Am ersten Tag auf einer Höhen von 3900 m ü. NN hat sich der Igel noch nicht Wohlgefühlt, da ging noch mehr.

Adventurous trek

This was a very fun and adventurous trip. We had a great trip with the guides, they were sweet and useful. We would have loved to hear more about the areas, ruins and mountains that we passed, it was a shame that they hurried too much to explain about see things.
We enjoyed the way they gathered the team ... Continue Reading

Hakuchis

Beautiful trek with great food. Day two very challenging. Carlos did a wonderful job as guide. My 11 year old did well and enjoyed everything. They accommodated the vegetarian diet with no difficulty. We went the first week in April and had rain. The trek was still enjoyable and everything was very green with wild flowers.

Wtf

By far, this was one of the most incredible adventures I have experienced. I wasn't sure what to expect as I embarked upon this journey, but what I did find was a positive yet exhausting experience. I mean, the views were spectacular, but my preparation for this experience was lacking.
I found myself repeating the words "what the f&@#" ... Continue Reading

Jorge rules

I came here because I understand that treks are so much more than a physical journey, and the amazing people I have met here and the team that was built really did feel like family. Despite the fact that I struggled more than the rest of the team to keep up, no one made me feel left out.
There ... Continue Reading
