The first of more Active Adventures! (April 2015)

“For me, travelling to Peru was going to be a trip of a lifetime since it would be "out of my comfort zone" (All of my travel, although extensive, had been in Europe, where I lived for 5 years, and North America). Active Adventures made this trip unforgettable mostly because of our expert and extraordinary guide, Elder (he is a gem!), and the perfectly organized, ambitious itinerary which showed us so many aspects of this amazing country that most tourists don't ever see. Every day unfolded practically seamlessly; our accomodation, whether hotels, jungle huts or tents, was comfortable and easy; our food, whether in restaurants or cooked by our talented porters, was varied and delicious; and the knowledgeable and passionate local guides offered rare glimpses into the unique experiences of their lives as Peruvians. The activities were so well orchestrated, with excellent equipment (bikes and kayaks) and gave us unique perspectives of landscapes that few visitors are privileged to experience. Many of the places on the Jaguar trip offered spontaneous encounters with local people which added so much to the trip. For me this was a journey which one can hardly place a value on. Thank you Active! I'll be back!”
