• Discover remote ruins, way off-the-beaten-track in north Peru.

  • Cliff-top tombs and mummies.

  • Pre-Inca ruins of Kuelap.

  • Hike in remote Andean valleys and mountains unchanged for centuries.

We had Kuelap to ourselves and stayed in remote valleys where we saw the occasional farmers.

Some locals fished us some river trout for our dinner - we got a real glimpse into rural life in the Andes.
