Adventure Machupichu style
First day was awesome! I felt strong, I felt unstoppable! But Pachamama had something to say about that... the second day I was humbled by altitude sickness. At the top of the pass, the highest point of the trail, I began to feel nauseated and definitely no longer strong or unstoppable.
Somehow, with the support and encouragement of my ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu Peru 2014
Inca Trail Reservations did a great job preparing us for this trip. Their packing list was very accurate considering the variable weather conditions and it would allow for light enough packing to trek with your own bag. However, as Inca Trail would recommend, it makes the trip way more enjoyable if you hire a porter to carry your gear for ... Continue Reading

Fue duro pero valio la pena
Si no estás en forma, Salkantay te hará sufrir. El segundo y el cuarto día son los más duros, más de 20 km de subidas y bajadas por terrenos escarpados. Al final del trek tendrás ampollas en los pies, picaduras en varias partes de tu cuerpo y descubrirás músculos que no tenías y que ahora te duelen.
Valió la ... Continue Reading

When we arrived in Peru, we were met at the airport and taken directly to our hotel in Lima. The hotel was ... Continue Reading
Day 1: After a bus ride we started to walk until our first campsites. There we had lunch, before we walked to a very nice lagoon with a wonderful view. The trail was very steep but it was worth it. After some explanations from Carlos, an offering made with stones and a "family-picture" we walked back to the campsite, where ... Continue Reading

Words cannot describe how amazing this trek is. I am an adventure seeker and I must say this was the best hiking / backpacking trip I have ever done. Each day of the trek was full of challenging adventures, beautiful scenery, and I fully enjoyed getting the opportunity to get to know my group from all over the world and ... Continue Reading
Salkantay trek was awesome. I almost died a few times because it was so bloody cold and I had never experienced such altitude. Day one we went a drive for a couple of hours before starting the trek, we reached our campsite after a few hours and then after a short break hiked for an hour up to an awesome ... Continue Reading
Challenging but rewarding
This is a trip I have wanted to go on for years and I am so glad that I waited because I got to share it with the woman I love. The Salkantay trek was extremely challenging, which made the rewards that much greater. We met some great people along the way and I wouldn't change a thing.
It ... Continue Reading

The company was extremely helpful and organized and we knew exactly what we needed for the trek and what to bring for the trip.
Our tour guide, Carlos - ... Continue Reading
