This was the trip of a lifetime ! We had a great experience and felt adequately prepared for our hike by our guide. Each day he would brief us with how many hours we would hike and the difficulty we could expect.
Each day when we arrived at our campsite, it immediately felt like home thanks to the assistance ... Continue Reading
Salkantay, pronounced Sol con tie !
I had a great time on the Salkantay Trek. Although I have to say, the second day really is tough. Of course, you can rent a horse if you want. Some of their info is a bit outdated, though. For instance, I brought water purification drops which turned out to be unnecessary since there are a lot of little shacks ... Continue Reading
Salkantay ain’t no joke
I had an amazing time on the Salkantay trail. All the training and exercising and endurance I prepared with did not factor in the altitude in the equation. Our guide Carlos was great, slowing down to rest when I was winded, making me celery and lemon tea when I got a fever. Horse option for the injured and weak.

Minha experiencia no Caminho Inca
O caminho foi uma experiência unica! Com 61 anos venci obstáculos, fiz amigos e fui bem sucedida! Venci os medos e me sinto vitoriosa! A confiança e o apoio da equipe na trilha foi importante, com palavras de apoio: vamos lá, estamos perto, coragem, falta pouco!
Chegada no acampamento, o acordar de manhā, com um chá quente foi muito ... Continue Reading
Bom, o que dizer da minha experiência na Trilha Inca? a paisagem é linda! Machu Picchu é tão bela que dói. eu poderia falar também que fiquei três dias sem banho sem reclamar, que o segundo dia é pesado, que os porteadores são uns queridos e trabalham muito bem, que a comida é sensacional, que o chá para despertar é ...

The Inca Trail trek and Machu Picchu was a really great experience. We did not really know what to expect, since we are not used to trek. But there were no problems at all, day 1 was a good start.
Day 2 was quite hard, but the view from the top was worth it. We had good time to ... Continue Reading
Inca Trail 4 days / 3 nights
Going to the Inca Trail at the end of my 3 week backpack vacation I was afraid that the long trek would be too hard but it has been the best experience of my time in Peru and Bolivia.
It gave me my energy back thanks to the amazing nature, my co-walkers and not the least the friendly, good ... Continue Reading
The amazing Inka Trail trek was very very good ! The guide was really overbearing and took good care of me while I was sick. I didn't feel unsafe at any point. The food was really good and the cook made and amazing cake for Klaus, in that little kitchen. How he did it is a mystery to me.

The only negative thing ... Continue Reading
