As alternative Trek specialists, we offer frequent departures to Lares and Salkantay, with the trip ending with the short train journey to Machu Picchu.

How can I join a trekking group?
Here we provide a list of those trekkers who have made a reservation for a trekking departure on a fixed date and who are looking for others to join their guaranteed departure. The maximum group size is 10, which we believe is the ideal group size to ensure a great experience. This system provides the perfect opportunity to trek a little-known route in the company of other travelers from all over the world, making new friends and learning about new places.

After checking our list, if you find a trek you would like to do then send us an e-mail and make a deposit to guarantee your trip departure. This trek will then be listed on our website so that other travelers will have the chance to sign up and join you on the trek you have chosen. Of course, there is no guarantee that others will join, but we will still guarantee the departure if you still want to go, on a semi-private basis and at a special rate. The risk is then carried by the agency, and not by you.

Get your trek listed to give others the chance to join!

People will only be able to join your trek if you are listed on the website.  We recommend that you post your trek listed at least 2 or 3 months before departure to give you a good chance of getting others to join your trek.

We depart with a minimum of 2 participants.

The system we offer enabling travelers to form groups for the routes they choose to trek has advantages and disadvantages:

Private Tour

Advantages: Flexibility in terms of departure dates. You might choose to change your departure date by 1 or 2 days up to one week before the leaving date depending on availability of guides (this may be more difficult during the high season). You will be able to trek at your own pace and even vary the route with the assistance of your guide in order to enjoy a real sense of adventure.

Disadvantages:  This is of course a more expensive option and you will not have the chance to meet other travelers from all over the world.

If you are just two people and you wish to have a ‘PRIVATE TOUR’, then an additional charge of $80 will be made (that is, just $40 per person).

If there are 3 or more in your group and you would like a private tour then this surcharge will not be charged. If you are just two people and you advertise on our website for trekkers to join you and the departure does not attract other trekkers, then you will not be asked to pay the surcharge.

Shared tour

Advantages: This is a more economical option and it also enables you to meet other travelers from all over the world. The maximum group size is 10 participants, meaning you will have personal contact with other members of the group and with your guide and porters.

Disadvantages: Fixed departures

This means less flexibility in terms of changing the route or trekking at your own pace, given that you will have to consider the needs of the rest of the group.
