What we do
Our upcoming adventures combine high quality education in a fun and stimulating environment. Our courses are totally interactive and combine practical hands-on sessions with case discussions, evidence based reviews, networking opportunities and plenty of chances to ask questions. Come prepared to engage in vigorous debate on topics that are often linked to the environment we are travelling through.

INCA & SALCANTAY TRAIL
Our most popular high altitude trek
We will return to the Inca Trail for a 7th time - and now we know when. As passes on the Inca Trail are limited and sell out many months in advance we are allowing a reasonably long lead in time for this trip in order to maximise your chances of successful registration.
The Inca Trail runs between the Sacred Valley of the Urumbamba River and the abandoned city of Machu Picchu. It is one of the most famous treks in the world. Although only 45km in length it manages to traverse a stunning and diverse mix of terrain before culminating in Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas. Prior to reaching the Inca Trail we will traverse the Salcantay Trail taking you to a higher, more remote and truly spectacular part of the region.
We plan to time our visit to coincide with the Festival of the Sun - South America's most famous Inca Festival.
