Description

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.

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.

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.

Thanks again for helping personally to arrange my booking. I had such a fantastic time in Fontainebleau. The trip was everything I could have hoped for. Léo was a fabulous guide, entirely gracious, supportive, and professional. He did an amazing job showcasing a variety of sites and experiences over the course of the trip, so every day there was something different and new. I leave with many great memories, and I am already looking forward to the next opportunity to climb outdoors.

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!

We were unable to climb the Arete des Cosmiques due to rock fall and crevasse issues, but we were able to re-route to the Aiguillie du Marbrees and it turned out to be the best choice given the situation. Had a great experience and Catalin Dobre was excellent in guiding me to a wonderful adventure

Communication with our guide, Claire, was super easy (via WhatsApp). We met her at the arranged meeting place and she showed us a great range of appropriate climbing spots. Her recommendations were exactly as we had requested (beginner and intermediate). Claire was informative, encouraging and patient, and her manner/teaching style really made for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.‘I couldn’t recommend the service, or Claire, highly enough.

Ce 6 août, nous avons fait une merveilleuse balade découverte en Forêt Saint-Hubert, accompagnés par Olivier, notre guide tout terrain ! Nous sommes une famille composée de 8 adultes et 9 petits-enfants pas mal remuants. Nous avons également deux chiens. Grâce à Olivier, notre petite-fille PMR a bénéficié pour toute la balade d'une joëlette, bien pratique. Nos petits-enfants étaient tellement heureux de se retrouver qu'ils en ont oublié les consignes de discrétion... Pour l'observation du grand gibier, il faudra attendre qu'ils grandissent un peu. Merci à Olivier pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Bravo à Explore-Share pour la qualité de ses contacts.

Léo was a great guide - when the weather forecast was quite poor for our original date, he was very accommodating and flexible, meeting us a day early despite some logistical challenges on our end. Then he was a great guide, showing us around a variety of good boulder problems and helping us understand the local style/ethics.

Un réel point d'attention sur la sécurité tout en gardant une ambiance fun et détendue nous a permis de profiter pleinement d'une super activité en extérieur et dans un cadre magnifique. L'équipe est très professionnelle. Je recommande avec plaisir cette activité !

Great experience from beginning to end! Communication for the booking went smoothly and both Gauthier and Christophe were responsive and attentive to our wishes. We (a group of 5) ended up doing the Via Ferrata in “les grands malades” in Namur with Christophe. It was an amazing experience! Christophe was very professional and reassuring. He always had an eye out for everyone and guided us through the entire adventure safely and with a lot of fun. We were all ready to sign up for the next one as we safely hit the ground. Thanks for everything! See you soon!

The whole process has been very smooth considering how unstable the current situation is! Explore-share were in contact proactively ready to assist if I needed them and the team behind the guide were also very helpful. The climbing was very beautiful and the guide knew his stuff, the route was well picked and I was absolutely shattered by the end! Would recommend climbing in Verdon to anyone interested.

Skiing from Aguille du Midi down to Chamonix has been an experience of a lifetime. We enjoyed the Valle Blanche breathtaking views all the way down and the best route and ski conditions we could ever had! Our guide provided us with the avalanche material and safety information prior to start the run and shared his knowledge and skiing advice with us during the day. We'd 100% recommend the activity and our experienced guide Mathis! Having him guiding us made it an incredible day. Thank you so much for the unforgettable adventure!!

The Vallee Blanche is near the top of every skier's bucket list and I am happy to say that it did not disappoint! The spectacular views, various snow surfaces and inclines, and the adrenaline rush of skiing on a moving glacier cannot be beat. Mathis was an amazing guide. From the beginning, he was knowledgeable about every face of every mountain in the area. It is very clear that skiing and climbing are his passions. He evaluated us and chose the perfect route down. Even when things got a little dicey on the ridge and around the crevaces, he kept his cool and gave very clear instructions. I would 100% reccomend hiring him for this trip or any other skiing or mountaineering experience.

We had a truly wonderful ski tour with Mathis, he is a fantastic guide and incredibly knowledgeable about the area and his passionate about getting people to know and see his backyard shows! We will definitely be coming back to Chamonix to ski tour again!
