The Salkantay Trek, an Incredible Hike to Machu Picchu

We always knew we wanted to visit Machu Picchu while in Peru but there was one thing that we weren’t quite sure about. Should we do it the easy way and take the train, or should we do it the hard way and hike there? When people talked about hiking the Inca Trail, I always […]

Hiking Rainbow Mountain and The Red Valley, Peru

In recent years, Cusco has become even more popular than it already was, this time because of Vinicunca, a magnificent geologic wonder. Also known as Rainbow Mountain or La Montana de Siete Colores, Vinicunca has taken Instagram by storm. Photos of Rainbow Mountain are everywhere, complete with shots of people posing with cheeky Alpacas at […]

A Three-Day Hike into the Colca Canyon, Peru

At 3,270 metres (10,730 ft), the Colca Canyon or Cañon de Colca is the second deepest canyon in the world. But somehow, not many people have heard of it. It lives in the shadows of another famous grand canyon in Arizona that is actually only the 4th deepest one in the world! If you’re a […]

Hiking the Cerro de Monserrate, Bogota

Walking around Bogota, you can’t miss spotting the Cerro de Monserrate, the large hill that rises above downtown Bogota. With its church perched on top of it, the highest point in Bogota stands out.

Hiking The Platteklip Gorge Route, Cape Town

The iconic Table Mountain is as incredible from the air as it is from the ground. As we landed in Cape Town, I couldn’t contain my excitement when we finally saw it.

A Day trip to the Grampians National Park

The Grampians National Park is part of the Great Southern Touring Route, and so for a lot of tourists, a visit there is a one-day affair on the way to or from the Great Ocean Road. Although you can’t possibly see everything in a single day, it is possible to see the main sights and to […]

Hiking the Main Range Track to Mount Kosciuszko

After spending a wonderful Christmas in Pambula, New South Wales this year, we were feeling the side effects of eating way too much food, and certainly not enough hiking! So it was just as well that after leaving Pambula we drove north to the town of Jindabyne, an all year round haven for skiers, hikers […]
