2014 Wanderlust Guide of the Year Awards

2014 Wanderlust Guide of the Year Awards

We were delighted to hear that Efrain Valles has made the shortlist for the 2014 Wanderlust Guide of the Year Awards. Efrain works for our partners in Peru - and so if you have travelled with us in Peru, then you may have met him. If you had Efrain as your leader then Wanderlust would like to hear from you! Send your lovely comments to topguide@wanderlust.co.uk. The deadline is the 23rd May.

"You cannot help but love ‘Effie’. Since graduating from Cusco’s Tupac Amaru University, he has spent the last 12 years leading treks across Peru, projecting his infectious energy and enthusiasm onto every group he takes on, as well as sharing his boundless knowledge of the country’s history, culture and nature. Amid guiding, looking after his family and charity marathon training – he did London 2012 dressed as a chaski (Incan messenger) – Effie also volunteers with the charity Chicuchas Wasi, helping girls in extreme poverty. You described him as a 'great ambassador for Peru who wants nothing for himself' and someone who communicates through 'humour, smiles and hugs'."

Wilderness Lecture with Helen Sharman

The Wilderness Lectures are a much-loved Bristol tradition spanning some 34 years. After a year out in 2020 they made a welcome return this month with one of the best lectures ever delivered by Helen Sharman, Britain's first astronaut. Helen enthralled a sell-out audience with stories, anecdotes and fascinating details of the time she spent training and aboard the Russian space station back in 1991. Helen is pictured here with our MD, Steve Berry, one of the three founders of Wilderness Lectures.

The next lecture takes place on December 9th and will be given by world famous climber, Peter Habeler. Some tickets should be available on the door. For further information visit Wilderness Lectures
