My name is Evelyn, I am 28 years old, born and raised in Peru. I work as a travel advisor in Explorandes.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I work organizing tours around Peru, We specialize in Cusco Region, where we do adventure treks (Inca Trail trek, Salkantay trek, Ancascocha trek) and also organize different types of activities: biking, horseback riding, rafting, zip lining, kayaking, etc. We also offer cultural tours around Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Southern Valley and Machu Picchu, and trips to other destinations such as Lima, Puno, Lake Titicaca, Arequipa and Colca Canyon, Ica, Paracas, Nazca, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Huaraz and the Amazon Rainforest."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Travel is my passion. Since I was young, I wanted to explore the world as I felt there was so much to see. As soon as I started exploring, I decided I wanted to make travel part of my lifestyle. When I was living abroad, I realized that my country, Peru, had a lot of potential, and has a lot to offer. Our culture is rich and our people are friendly. I want people from all over the world visit my country and fall in love with Peru as I have."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"The travel experience I will never forget was the first because that trip changed my life, and I knew then that I wanted to continue to travel for the rest of my life. I moved to Spain to study for a year, everything was new for me. I was so excited, I knew this experience will open my mind to new experiences, the culture, the food, the landscapes, the people, everything seemed so interesting. But what I learned the most was about myself, I learned about what I was capable to do, my strengths, my fears, which has allowed me to grow as a person."
Featured trips & expertise
Named after the highest peak in the Vilcabamba mountain range, the Salkantay Trek takes you high in the Andes outside Cusco, providing specular views of snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes, and lush cloud forest. It’s an easy to moderate hike, with some sections of challenging terrain. The trek involves comfortable stays at luxurious lodges in remote locations so that you can enjoy the gorgeous Andean scenery without having to give up your comforts.
Trek the last day of the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. If you're short on time or permits are sold out for the full Inca Trail, this is a great option for those wishing to experience a taste of this famous route. You'll enter the ruins through the Sun Gate as the sun sets over Machu Picchu, then have a full tour of the ruins the following day.
Only a limited number of people are permitted to hike the Inca Trail each year. If you have your heart set on this classic trek to Machu Picchu, be sure to book your trek months in advance to get permits for your desired dates.
