Trekking on Inca-trails to the hidden Inca citadel Choquequirao (10days) Prices from: USD 1500
This is an adventurous trekking in the Andes mountains along the famous Vilcabamba range on little known and well intact Inca-trails. When we walk on these historic trails, we may be thinking that these trails were possibly constructed by the last two Inca kings Manco Inca and his son Tupac under their 40 years of guerrilla wars against the Spanish colonial regime. Our destination is Choquequirao, an Inca citadel hidden and little known but quite well preserved with a spectacular location, only reached by foot. This journey starts and ends in Cusco.

Lodge TRC – extraordinary fauna experiences in the Amazon (5days) Prices from: USD 1200

Because of its unique and natural location, it is an exceptional well situated place to get close encounters of intact and undisturbed wildlife. National Geographic twice has had front-page stories from Tambopata and TRC, the perfect habitat where you can find the world largest concentration of macaws. In this part of Tambopata threatened species find healthy and naturally sustainable living conditions and that opens up unequalled opportunities to see intact tropical rainforest wildlife.
