As a group of friends who have years of experience of long distance walks and challenges we chose Exodus to guide us on the High Inca Trail. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and rate it on a par with the incredible experience of climbing Kilimanjaro. The trek was brilliantly organised by our Exodus team leader who met us at the airport, escorted us to our hotel and then showed us Cusco by night. Her knowledge and experience were excellent providing us a marvelous insight into the Inca culture and the Spanish effect on it. The High Inca trek was a testing walk but for a reasonbly fit person (I am 60 years young), it was quiet attainable.
An acclimatisation walk put us in the mood to experience the ever changing and beautiful countryside and views, we visited Inca ruins of all shapes and sizes. We saw Condors soaring gracefully through blue skys on the trek and nothing can prepare you for what you feel as you walk through the sun gate. We subsequently visited a host of villages and Inca ruins, we ate at the home of a very welcoming local family on one occasion and also had time to explore on our own.
We realise that every holiday destination is also someone else's home and that we should leave places as we found them. Find out more about how we incorporate responsible travel into our adventure and activity holidays, and how you can help by donating to one of our responsisble travel projects.
