Small GroupsWith a maximum group size of just 12 on most tours, it feels more like travelling with friends than being on an organized tour. Our groups are made up of couples and friends from all around the world. You'll meet like-minded people where everyone is guaranteed to share a passion for travel and discovery, and a small group will allow you to get further off the tourist trails for a more intimate experience. If travelling alone you won't have to pay an additional fee as a single traveller, you'll share a room or tent with a fellow traveller of the same gender or if you'd prefer your own space you can choose to pay a little extra to have a room or tent to yourself.

9. Authentic Andean Experiences

Authentic Andean ExperiencesWhen referring to an adventure it is not so much the destination that defines it, what we believe is that the bulk of an adventure is not necessarily where you are going but how you get there. And our tours encompass the most breathtaking sights because we go off the beaten path to places that very few people have been. Our itineraries are designed to make the most out of your time, all you have to do is follow our lead and enjoy the mystical Andes for what they are.

10. Exclusive Campsites

Exclusive CampsitesThis year our company has implemented different types of services that really make us stand out with the Salkantay route. Among these services we offer private campsites that are just for our customers. Like our ancestors we are very considerate with the Pachamama (mother earth). Therefore our campsites (CHOZAS) are adapted to the environment without generating visual impacts. 
Our campsite consists of several huts which are made of a material (Ichu and wood) that will guarantee protection during cold nights and a pleasant rest.
