Things You Need To Know About Peru & The Amazon

  • Must be able to climb in and out of minibuses, regular buses, sometimes small aircrafts, canoes and boats unassisted. People need to be willing to rotate seats. 
  • Must be able to tolerate nature walks at an easy pace on uneven terrain, sometimes uphill, for three or four hours at a time in heat and humidity.
  • Should generally be in good health and prepared to travel in locations without medical facilities. Your extension includes considerable walking/hiking at high altitudes (over 9,000 feet at Machu Picchu and 11,150 feet in Cuzco). These conditions and altitudes may pose problems to participants with particular physical issues and you should always consult your personal physician before embarking on such an adventure.
  • Flexibility and good humor – unexpected changes and/or glitches will occur.
  • A spirit of adventure and curiosity.
  • Interest in and willingness to appreciate a destination with uneven infrastructure and a bending definition of comfort. That being said, some locations are nestled in absolute luxury where pampering is the norm.
