Let Christopher, a certified rock climbing instructor, guide you across Peru. Discover mesmerizing places, from dazzling lakes, to vibrant cities, and from Inca ruins to magnificent ice capped mountains.
When visiting a fascinating country like Peru, the options to explore are endless. Therefore, I crafted this unique itinerary. So you’ll be able to visit the most iconic spots on this country in just 21 days.
Over three weeks we’ll visit the most famous corners of Peru, from the south region bordering Bolivia, to the Vilcanota mountain range, including of course the unrivalled Machu Picchu.
At the south, we’ll explore the volcanic mountain range in Arequipa. Here, we will visit this colonial city, with its uniquely white architecture. Then, we will head towards the Colca Canyon, for a three day trekking adventure. At the heart of this majestic place, we’ll reach the nest of the condors, where we’ll be able to see them flying right above us. To end our first week, we will head to the Titicaca lake at the Llachon peninsula, where we’ll hike through secluded places away from tourists.
Thereupon we will head to the sacred Inca Valley, visiting its numerous archaeological sites, easily reached from Cusco. And of course, we will trek through the incomparable Machu Picchu.
Finally, on our third week we will hike across Ausangate (6,300 m), at the heart of the Vilcanota mountain range, with its snow capped mountains rising above 6,000 meters.
Please note this is a long journey that requires an excellent fitness level, and a good acclimatization. But the places we will get to see will make it completely worth all our effort.
So if you are up for this challenge, don’t hesitate and request to book this trip today. It would be my absolute pleasure to be your guide on this incredible trip.

It was a great climbing day on almost a vertical rock about 70 meters high. Willy is the best guide I ever met in my life, and without him I wouldn't make it.
Rebecca and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Stephane and his wife. They were amazing guides.
We had a great experience with Willy Viez in Wallonie. He shared a lot of useful knowledge with us about alpine rock climbing, especially about lead climbing. His pointers and real life examples turned out to be essential on the following day when we tried to climb an easy route on our own (no quick draws were left behind). Willy assisted us in a way that resulted in great personal accomplishments for the day and he surely helped us to feel more at ease around real rocks. We are very happy with this adventure that has a long lasting after effect.
Really enjoyed our day rock climbing in Les Calanques. Great routes and our guide was prepared, very flexible in terms of what we’d like to do and which levels he could do with us. The communication beforehand was a little unclear since I expected an email and didn’t quite get that I’d have to access the web application of explore share. Nothing major, just could be explained clearer in the email.

We had a great day with Ivan in Fontainebleau. He was so knowledgeable about the area and its history, and about warming up for effective climbing. We had a lot of fun and climbed some very cool boulders despite the very cold weather.
My daughter has had a fantastic time at with the horses this week, perfectly organised by Explore-share. We are so grateful to Gauthier for making it all a fantastic experience, thank you!! We will be back.
I booked a private shinrin yoku session with Explore-Share, but unfortunately their guide was injured and couldn't do it. Gauthier had been very helpful, quick to communicate and agreed to work with another guide he'd never met. All went well. My first forest bath guided by Magda was powerful and I appreciated the experience so much. She was calm, reassuring, and led all the invitations smoothly and sensitively. An eye-opening experience that will be fondly remembered.
The lift to the via ferrata des Evettes was closed so we did the via ferrata de curalla in Passy. Was a great day!
Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

Yesterday was amazing. Olivier is a world class climber and has a natural ability to quickly assess my level and coach me to exceed what I thought I could do. He was very focused on making sure I was safe. Climbing with Olivier yesterday has had a deep impact on my life as a climber. An excellent climbing guide!

We had a fantastic time with our guide and the horses at the stables in Les Houches. Everything was perfectly organised - thank you - we ill be back.
We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!
