Hike in style and comfort on our Salkantay trek, walking through magnificent scenery and staying in luxury lodges on your trip to Machu Picchu.
This Salkantay trek is a once-in-a-lifetime and stylish alternative journey to the famous Inca ruins at Machu Picchu.
You walk from one cosy mountain lodge to another through the Cordillera Vilcabamba, a spectacular mountain range.
The enchanting valley of Soraypampa is the starting point of the trek, by many accounts more scenic and exclusive than the famous ‘Inca Trail’.
Hike through changing altitudes and varied terrain while you marvel at the beauty of the Salkantay Peak, Salkantay Glacier and Humantay Glacier Lake.
After a day’s walking, indulge in the comfort of enchanting mountain lodges with their innovative local cuisine and the warmth of the local people.
All the lodges offer private rooms with en-suite bathrooms, hot showers, bar/lounge and cozy reading rooms – some even have a jacuzzi!

Indulge your senses at the legendary Tierra Patagonia Hotel and Spa in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park.
This is pure luxury. Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa sits on a bluff facing Lake Sarmiento with magnificent views of the Torres del Paine National Park.
Tierra Patagonia has 40 opulent rooms with spectacular views across the lake to the Torres del Paine, all decorated to capture the warmth and coziness of being indoors in this wild, faraway place.
The Spa has an adventure spa philosophy with services designed as relaxing options after a day of experiencing the outdoors actively.
Tierra Patagonia blends with the flow of the geology of its location – wood clad interiors meld with the furnishings and textiles, which were hand made by Chilean craftspeople, using natural materials from the region.
Included are a choice of activities such as treks, horse rides, scenic trips and bicycle rides to world famous locations and also to areas less travelled, all of which are led by qualified and experienced guides.
Choose from four day stays or longer – the truth is you probably won’t ever want to leave Tierra Patagonia.
Packages include transfers from Punta Arenas, accommodation and full board with open bar.

Mary and I returned from our trip to Patagonia yesterday, and although we are very tired, we are extremely pleased with our journey.
In a nutshell, you did a terrific job implementing our trip. It was clear that you had done extensive research to find the best resources for our trip.
Transfers were handled professionally and smoothly. We had one glitch in El Chalten. There were two buses for El Calafate that day, one large and one small. The driver waited for the large one, but we were in the small one. It was not a long walk to the hotel, and it did not effect our trip at all. Every other transfer was perfect.
The hotels were all excellent. They were expecting us, and the employees were universally friendly and helpful.
Our guide in El Chalten, was a most wonderful young woman (Sol Giadorou). My wife and I both loved her. As a guide, she was knowledgeable, patient and flexible. As a person, she was one of the most impressive people we have ever met. We felt like a family by the time we left.
I had been reluctant to add the extra expense of a guide, but my wife insisted. Wow, was she right about this.
Patagonia was endlessly interesting and extremely beautiful. It was also quite challenging at times; we had days with very strong winds, rain, and sleet. We also walked more than we have in a long time. We are 65 now, and definitely past our prime. But this was a trip where the effort was rewarded many times over.
Again, thank you so much!

Chile is the perfect country for a self-drive holiday. Here is our handy guide. In the Central part of the country there is a good network of “autopistas” – motorways/highways. These are good quality, tarmac surface, private and have frequent toll points. The Panamerican highway runs from Arica in the north to Puerto Montt in the south and is a good quality, well paved road. The main trunk roads which branch off this are generally good quality and paved. These are also well signposted, which is helpful. In Patagonia the main Panamerican highway becomes the carretera Austral (Austral Road) and …
