About Us

Bespoke Trip Planning & Tour Operator Services

We continue to develop expeditions and customised trips, for travellers, that often go beyond the traditional routes and will take you deeper into the incredible environments that exist in this country.

Spending much of our time in the Andes we continue to explore the Cordilleras Vilcanota, Vilcabamba, Blanca & Huayhuash around the Cusco Region and north in Huaraz, Ancash. These are immense mountain ranges, with incredible routes, natural environments & community cultures that you’re unlikely to experience elsewhere.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

“Trekking & Climbing in the Andes & customised Expeditions in South America.

  • Peru – Cusco & Sacred Valley, Cordillera Vilcanota (Ausangate), Cordillera Blanca.
  • Argentina – Aconcagua, El Chalten & El Calafate.
  • Chile – Torres del Paine (Patagonia).

During 2022 and beyond we’ll be expanding into Ecuador, Bolivia & Colombia.”

How did you get involved in travel?

“Having lived in Cusco over 15 years ago, and working for a few different tour operators, I decided to return to get involved with the travel industry here again because the excitement of travel in this continent draws you in. The atmosphere, culture & local traditions, makes Cusco the destination for all travelers to South America.”

Increasingly the Amazon Jungle is becoming a more popular destination for adventurers, it’s one of the largest natural environments in the world. We’re opening up routes that differ from the traditional jungle lodges around the big towns like Puerto Maldonado and are developing exploratory & expedition style trips into domains that are more natural, less traveled, rich in wildlife and native habitats.

We like to approach travel in a way that all things are possible and when the opportunity arises we get great satisfaction designing tours for adventurous travellers who like to go off the beaten path.

What is special about Peru for you?

“The scope for adventure and discovering community traditions. The Andes are a special place and I have great memories of trekking around a lot of the routes here in the Cusco Region. One of my favourite memories is trekking around the Ausangate Nevada with a friend, losing our way and finding help from the local people.

More recently we have been exploring the Peruvian Amazon, both along the Madre de Dios & the Amazon in Iquitos, looking for new places and adventures. The scale of the jungle here is awesome and the people that inhabit the jungle are just as friendly as those you find in the Andes.

The further in you go to the jungle, the more you understand about how interesting life is here and the opportunities there are to uncover some indigenous ways of life.”
