Cusco

  • An extraordinary journey of discovery following the footsteps of the Incas.

  • Set in a tranquil plaza behind Cuzco's main square, this former palace and convent is emerging from years of restoration to become one of the city's most exclusive hotels.
    Step past walls of Inca stones and into a cloistered courtyard with an ancient fountain at its heart. 

  • Discover Peru in a program specially designed for gourmet enthusiasts with an appetite for history and adventure.

  • Walking along the cobblestone streets while marveling at the flawless Incan stone masonry, the group searches for specific pieces of art (hence the name Safari) that allow for an understanding of the city’s colonial heritage.

  • This adventure began many years ago when Nilda became interested in the complex and traditional Chinchero designs that only the elders in her community could produce.
    She learned these techniques and her skill became known throughout the region.

  • PERU: a photographic discovery is a program specially designed for travelers interested in seeing.
    Peru from a photographic perspective: how to work with the locals, how to feel a part of a place that is at first-glance foreign, and how to consider light and composition while creating your images.

  • As 2011 is the 100th anniversary of the scientific discovery of Machu Picchu, this hand-crafted program will take us through each step of the discovery process of one of the world’s most (if not the most) enigmatic archaeological treasures, led by renowned expeditionary Peter Frost.

  • This experience reflects what daily life is like in Cuzco today. The San Pedro market has something for everyone. Fresh, succulent fruit is on display among musical instruments and pre-fabricated packages to make offerings to Mother Earth. 

  • The Apu Ausangate stands majestically before our eyes. We are 4,200 meters above sea level in the community of Cuyuni. Although this is the highest point of our expedition it is certainly not the most exciting. 

  • The Apu Ausangate Lodge to Lodge route is not a trek – it is a lifechanging experience. Those who venture will not only be physically challenged, but will find themselves immersed in a surreal world – our hosts for 5 days will be “llamichus” and “pacocheros” of the Chillca and Osefina communities, inheritors of one of the few remaining shepherding societies in the world.

  • Specifically designed for female travelers eager to understand what life is like for women of other societies, this adventure will allow us to see life through the eyes of the women who shape the country’s history day-to-day.

    Our guides will be the curator of Larco Museum, who will give us a lesson on Pre-Columbian art, or Penelope Alzamora, who, spoon in hand, will take us on a tour through the best of Peruvian gastronomy.
