Andes Adventure

I had an amazing trip! A once in a lifetime experience, and memories I will cherish forever ... the entire experience from booking to trekking was exceptional, I couldn't expect higher standards.

Peru Traverse

Peru's diverse landscapes and colourful history are worthy of intimate exploration. This itinerary combines the historical and natural attractions with a trek along the classic Inca Trail. From Lima's world famous museums, we cruise the Ballestas Islands viewing the bountiful seal and bird colonies, before continuing to the fascinating Nazca Lines. From Arequipa, the beautiful 'white city' where the 16th century Santa Catalina Convent is located, our journey continues to the Colca Canyon, the deepest in the world, and a great location for spotting Andean Condors. On Lake Titicaca we spend a night on an island homestay before continuing across the high Altiplano to explore Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Our classic trek along the Inca Trail winds its way to the Sun Gate providing us with a superb view of the Machu Picchu ruins - a fitting finale to this all encompassing adventure.
