HIGHLY QUALIFIED, COMMITTED STAFF

You only want to entrust your health and safety to the most qualified professionals when you are on a rigorous trek.  But also, for what may be a once-in-a-lifetime tour, you want the highest quality experience, enhanced by knowledgeable guides.

Our certified tour guides, with an average of 10 years of experience, are educated in a wide range of areas, from Incan culture and history to local flora and fauna.  They speak English, Spanish and Quechua, the language of the indigenous people you may meet along the way. They are also trained in first aid by medical personnel and have certification as Primeros Auxilios.

How we treat our employees is a reflection of our respect for them and the important work they do. While the government  allows porters to carry a maximum of 20 kilos, our maximum is much less.  We make sure they have  good sleeping accommodations and are well fed, even if it means paying them a little more.

 

BEST EQUIPMENT

Our programs run through government-protected areas, national sanctuaries, reserves, world heritage sites, and local communities. We operate in areas that are generally hard to reach and that have harder living conditions than most of us are accustomed to. We also face a wide range of climates and weather conditions here in the Andes and the Peruvian Amazon. For this, we select our equipment very carefully, accounting for all geographical and weather conditions, to provide you as much comfort as possible.

 For each expedition, we select the most suitable tent to meet the current weather conditions. We also thoughtfully plan out other details such as where to camp, what direction to face our tents and water supplies, all of which impact your experience. Because our founder Joel is a photographer, we can guarantee you will always be sleeping in the prettiest campsites on the trail!

We are proud to use the best camping equipment in the area, which we renew and repair each season to ensure top performance on the trails. Whether  you’re hiking for two days or eight days, you need to start your trek well-rested and full of energy every morning. Not getting a proper night’s sleep can not only dimish the quality of your experience, but can also become a serious health issue.

That is why, unlike many other tour companies, we have invested in the best equipment from the most well-established names in the camping business

HEALTHY, LOCALLY SOURCED FOOD

While the unparalled scenery will feed your soul, we understand that it is equally as important for your bodies to be well- fed. Our cooks, trained by master chefs in the food capital of Lima, strive to make each day’s dining experience a memorable one

Drawing on the best of both Peruvian and international cuisine, they use local, organic ingredients from the Sacred Valley. Some foods may be familiar like quinoa, and (a mind-boggling variety of)potatoes, while others, like alpaca or kiwicha, may be a welcome introduction to your palate.

We will be happy to accommodate any special dietary requests—including vegetarian, gluten-free,  or lactose Intolerant . Just let us know in advance.
