Overland Track

Our guides Victor & Matt made the trip – we were novice long distance walkers & inexperienced campers but their patience and understanding was greatly appreciated and has encouraged us to look forward to future treks. Thanks so much for making our 29th Wedding Anniversary so memorable.

We have relived our Tassie walk many times over – in fact each time we‘re back in the bush memories flood back from our trip Thanks once again to the staff for a fabulous adventure.

Andes Adventure

The soaring peaks of the Andes and the cultural legacies of the Incas are two of Peru’s most compelling attractions. We discover both and much more on this amazing two week adventure. After savouring the historical and cultural highlights of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, we commence our trek. We explore the wilderness following trails to 5000m in the Cordillera Vilcabamba and establish camps beneath the spectacular 6270m Mount Salcantay. This stunning trail is much quieter than the busier Inca Trail and is highly regarded by past trekkers. On the final day we join the classic Inca Trail for the dramatic view of Machu Picchu from the 'Sun Gate'. Rather than rushing back to Cusco, we spend a night in Aguas Calientes for a well deserved soak in the hot springs before heading back to Machu Picchu at the best time of day, as the sun is rising.

traveller reviews

We enjoyed the entire trip. All the guides were excellent - Wilson, Pepe, and the guide around Machu Picchu. Cooks and horsemen were fantastic; food was wonderful. The itinerary was great; really got to see a lot of different types of scenery in a relatively small area. Our group was good; we all got on well. Hotels were in good locations and high standard.
