Reviews          

The acclimatisation and trek were excellent. This was my first trek and my first time in South America and first time travelling on my own! A fantastic experience and well organised!
Miss McC, Kincardineshire

Our itinerary was very well organised and standard of accommodation excellent - particularly the lodges on our trek, which were quite outstanding in every way.
Mr & Mrs Q, West Sussex

A fantastic trek and holiday - all organisation went smoothly - Peru is a fabulous country - the trek and lodges were outstanding.
Mr M, Gloucester

This trip had everything: the spectacular scenery of the trek through the mountains and the luxury accommodation and service we received throughout the holiday.
Mrs O'G, Kendal

The holiday was a great experience. The accommodation at 'Mountain Lodges' is exceptional and made a great end to each day.
Mr & Mrs K, Australia

The trip was brilliant, I loved it all. The Sacred Valley was an unexpected delight, the trek was just heaven, especially the Emerald Lake and Salkantay Pass. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity for such a wonderful experience - thank you for making it possible in such comfort!
Ms W, Edinburgh

View All

Our first trek follows an ancient pre-Inca trade route through the Cordillera Vilcabamba, crossing a high mountain pass between two snow-covered Andean peaks - Salkantay and Tucarhuay. As a final flourish to our trek, we gain a view of Machu Picchu from a perspective few tourists ever see. We stay in four super-comfy lodges with the emphasis on authentic design, great service and delicious food and they even have jacuzzis!

In the shadow of mighty Ausangate, our second trek is tougher but immensely rewarding. From snow-covered summits to its signature ‘Rainbow Mountain’ and red sandstone hills, we are treated to a constant visual feast. The lodges we use are built to a high standard with good facilities and they also train and employ local people as trek and lodge staff thereby benefiting the communities through which we are trekking.

With time spent acclimatising in Cuzco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas before we start trekking, and a day touring the magnificent ruins of Machu Picchu, this is an all-encompassing Andean adventure.
