    Most of this adventure takes place at altitudes ranging from 8,000 to 12,500 ft. (2,400 to 3,800 m.) above sea level. Altitude does affect some people. Individuals may initially experience some shortness of breath and heart pounding. Other symptoms include: headaches, loss of appetite, nausea and feeling weak and dizzy.

    Generally, the effects of altitude sickness are mitigated by drinking lots of water, resting periodically, avoiding alcohol and eating lightly. We strongly encourage you to consult with your physician to determine if this adventure is appropriate for you and whether prescription medications to prevent altitude sickness might benefit you.

    This adventure is physically strenuous. It is not recommended for anyone who has difficulties with high altitudes or a large amount of hiking. Activities on this journey include challenging terrain like uneven surfaces, steep inclines and irregular stairs and cobblestone streets. Rafting on the Urubamba River (Class 2) is considered gentle. Bear in mind that most of the trip is at altitudes between 8,000 – 11,000 feet above sea level. The itinerary has been created purposely with the highest altitude (Cusco) towards the end of the adventure. The trip requires a high amount of stamina in order to participate in the majority of the exciting activities offered on this vacation.

    Typically, breakfast is served family style. Some lunches and dinners are also served family style, while others offer a limited-choice menu. Dinners and lunches usually include fish, meat, and pasta or rice entrées, soup, vegetables, desserts and fruit, along with a chance to try Peruvian specialties. While the menus have been planned to give you a taste of typical Peruvian cuisine, they are always balanced with limited American fare. Given the nature of group travel, we regret that á la carte menu choices are not available. Child-friendly choices are available at all meals. Menu items are subject to change due to the availability and seasonality of foods. In order to offer you and your family a bit of time to enjoy meals amongst yourselves, there are a few meals that are not included in the itinerary.
