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.

Best of South America - Over 55's adventure

On this complete panorama of South America we combine the cultural highlights with time in the Amazon jungle and a well-devised trek in the Andes. If you have not trekked before don't worry, our "five" star trekking service will ensure a safe and satisfying experience. We travel from Buenos Aires, the vibrant Paris of South America, and the magnificent Iguazu Falls to Lima. We continue onto Cusco, with its endearing Inca and Spanish heritage and La Paz with its colourful markets and live music clubs. By contrast, the more active stages of the trip will provide further enduring memories. In the Amazon jungle, we undertake gentle boat trips and walks in search of the prolific birdlife, while in the Andes we trek for four days along a beautiful, recently restored Inca Trail. In the company of our experienced guides we follow an ancient granite trail through orchid-filled cloud forest before finally ascending the last section of the legendary Inca Trail into Machu Picchu.
