Highlights

 
  • Explore Peru’s most famous and iconic places.

  • Live a different adventure every day on this 21 days trekking tour.

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.

Looking for a completely different type of trip? I also guide this  one or more days of via ferrata in Belgium.

About the Guide

 
 

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
