4.-Is it safe to travel in Peru considering the political situation there?.

One thing that you can be sure of in this business is the variety in weather that is generally experienced on an adventure tour. Considering fluctuations in altitude and climate changes during your trip, we always recommend one main strategy – LAYERS. The only way to be sure that you are prepared for all types of weather is to bring a basic assortment of layered clothing. T-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, fleece, raincoat, trousers that zip-off into shorts, etc.

How heavy can it be? Backpacks or soft duffel bags are highly recommended for any adventure tour. Hard suitcases are just a nightmare when you are trying to fit your luggage into a small vehicle or cubicle, along with the rest of the group´s. You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage so don´t make it too heavy! For hikes, such as the Inca Trail, you will have the opportunity to store your regular luggage in the hotel where you will be staying before and after the hike.
