INTRODUCTION – SOLO WOMEN TRAVELER
The main reason to join this Peru Women-Only tour, is that I’ve always wanted not to depend on anyone to visit a destination that was on my bucket list, for some reason or another, company plans were constantly frustrated, the mismatch in the times, in the travel style, in the destination, in the budget, anyway… but I didn’t want to travel alone because I didn’t like the idea of imagining myself having dinner alone in a magical place that I always dreamed of visiting.
That was how I started looking for travel options in groups with women who were in the same situation as me, and it turned out to be a fabulous experience. Share moments with different women, with very different experiences, from diverse cultures, with totally opposite stories, enjoy the joy of the youngest and the wisdom of the elders, the entertaining stories of experienced travelers as of the emotion and fear from the one who travels alone for the first time, listening to the experiences of the most liberal ones like those of the housewife par excellence, made my group trips with other women, become my favorites as I wove a huge network of friends around of the world, with whom we still meet occasionally somewhere in the world to enjoy a new adventure together.
This experience made me learn a lot about tolerance and coexistence, becoming a better human being.Welcome to this trip designed with great enthusiasm and the best of energies, as if it were for myself.

Nonetheless, before getting into the serious stuff, I’d like to try taking you there with words, even if it’s just for a second.
Imagine the highest mountains you can think of, so high they rise above the clouds. Imagine them very narrow, wild and majestic. Now, picture yourself almost at the top of one of these tall and secluded mountains. You can hear the sound of a river that surrounds the valley, like a moat around a fortress. Beyond the river, there’s a foggy chain of other mountains that seems to never end.
The air smells fresh, everything is lush and green. Around you there’s a big, ancient, Inca citadel. You can see it stretching far and wide, up to the edges of the mountains, looking right into the cliff. Streets, terraces, houses. Everything is made up by big, squared and perfectly smooth stones. How on earth did they even build all of this up here? While you’re contemplating the surroundings, a cutesy looking llama stops by and starts eating grass right in front of you. Suddenly, you feel this intimate connection with time, nature and civilization. It is one of those rare life moments when the world looks as glorious as it can be.
After some days in the heights of the Andes surrounded by snowcapped peaks, you will make an abrupt climate change to a humid and hot one. Feel the natural atmosphere and experience the symphony of the wildlife in the middle of the jungle in the comfortable Amazon lodge that welcomes you to this great adventure. Let our local guide teach you some of the secrets of the ecological wealth of this protected area of the country.
