Whooooop just finished!
Just finished the Inca trail and we loved it.
The first day was all about getting into the right modus of walking and right mindset especially. ´Positive´ like our guide Victor liked to stress. Especially since the second day was going to be quite intense. And intense it was. I was soooo happy to arrive at the highest point ... Continue Reading
After a very early wake-up, my friend and I met our Salkantay trek group in Cusco. The first breakfast with our family was a bit daunting as everyone talked of their hiking experience in Nepal. Soon after we started walking from Mollepata to the camping place. It was quite easy-going for a first day. Yet, after lunch, we walked up ... Continue Reading
The Salkantay trek was my first trek. At first, the idea came from my friend Marion, who was living in Argentina and wanted to discover Peru. We had to wake-up at 4 am in the morning to join our “family” as Carlos, our guide, named it.
We were eight: the Russian team with Anna and Dacha, the Holland ... Continue Reading

Everything was well organized and reliable. We met our guide, Gerson, and received an informative orientation the night before the trek. The hike was challenging yet rewarding. ... Continue Reading

The food the porters and the chef where able to produce ... Continue Reading

This trek gives ... Continue Reading
A world-class experience
Talk about spectacular! The 4 day/3 night Inca Trail trek was the most amazing thing I have ever done. It started off the first day at the check point and off across the river and onto the trail straight away. We hiked through the beautiful Andes Mountains, past ancient Inca ruins. There was a bit of an uphill climb that ... Continue Reading
Incredible experience and wonderful trek. Unlucky bad weather at the summit couldn´t detract from the experience. The food was consistently very good to excellent and even though I was the only vegetarian in my small (6 person) group, I always had something special made for me. On one occasion, the cooks even prepared a squash for dinner that I had ... Continue Reading
We started the inca trail not knowing what to expect and a little nervous about what was to come. However our guide Victor immediately put us at ease and we soon became well acquainted with our group which was to prove very important over the next few days.
Our team "the pumas" encouraged each other throughout and this ... Continue Reading

Our tour guide, Victor, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Incas and the archaeological sites and this passion meant that we understood how important the trail and sites were. On the other hand Victor was incredibly funny, keeping ... Continue Reading
