Exploring Wild Peru in Photos

Posted by Crooked Compass

Nina Karnikowski recently travelled with us on our Wild Peru small group tour. With feedback like 'Oh my goodness, I have just had the most magical time here in Peru... I don't want to leave! Learning about ancient traditions in the Sacred Valley, the incredible food and the always optimistic people, and of course the trek... The trek! So challenging, so beautiful, absolutely life-changing,' we could not wait to share her beautiful photos with you!
