COVER IMAGE It is thought that llamas first appeared in North America 40 million years ago and migrated to South America only three million years ago. Only a few species of llamas and alpacas are domesticated while the vicuna and guanaco live in the wild. The wool produced by the llama is very soft and is used throughout South America to produce amazing cloth, clothes, rugs and more. Discover the Andean region that is home to llamas on our Handpicked Peru journey on page 23 and our Handpicked Bolivia trip on page 37.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT ON OUR JOURNEYS... CULTURE & HERITAGE There’s no better way to experience a region than by immersing yourself in local culture. Gain a genuine appreciation of a place, it’s people and landscapes by learning directly from those who truly understand it. Meet and stay with locals, explore historical sites and marketplaces, and eat traditional delicacies for a sincere, rich experience.

WILDLIFE & WILDERNESS Getting up close and personal with wildlife that you’ve only seen in magazines can be a surprisingly touching experience. Witness animals in their natural environment – often far-flung, breathtaking backdrops. By exploring mountains, lakes, gorges, plains and rainforests you’ll feel an honest connection to a place and its wild inhabitants.

ACTIVE ADVENTURES Our adventure journeys are created to offer a rewarding journey without needing a wealth of previous travel experience. Enjoy all the comforts and conveniences such as exceptional cuisine and friendly porters to carry and transfer luggage. Many of our adventures could be found in a ‘hard adventure’ category, but physical exertion is not the aim. And you can rest assured there’ll be a comfortable night’s sleep at the end of an active day.

HELP KEEP ANCIENT TRADITIONS ALIVE The town of Chinchero in Peru has undergone a number of changes recently and much of the traditional ways of life were being lost. Knowledge and practice of cultural touchstones have been severely affected by a disconnection with traditional culture. This prompted CTTC founder Nilda Callanaupa to take proactive steps to maintain her cultural heritage while also providing employment to local people. Nilda’s dream is to use the traditional weaving organisation to generate income for community members to be used for education, to improve housing and to provide medical care. Funding from the TreadRight Heritage Initiative grant is being used to finish the construction of a traditional weaver’s home at the Chinchero Weaver’s Centre, which will open its doors to locals and visitors alike in order to provide education about the traditional weaving techniques and promote the sale of the textiles.


ADVENTURE WORLD CARES At Adventure World and our parent company The Travel Corporation (TTC) we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. We recognise that it is our responsibility to help protect the places we visit and take care of the world around us.

TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION Created as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, the TreadRight Foundation is a not-for-profit that works to help ensure the environment and communities we visit remain for generations to come. To date, TreadRight has supported more than 35 sustainable tourism projects worldwide. To learn more about the TreadRight Foundation, visit treadright.org

WORLD ANIMAL PROTECTION As part of Adventure World’s sustainability program, we work with people who, like us, seek to protect the places we explore and who are creating initiatives that are driving positive change. Which is why we’re pleased to be in partnership with World Animal Protection to provide our travellers with responsible and humane animal encounters, by pledging not to sell elephant rides or shows in our itineraries.

CTTC Funding from the TreadRight Heritage Initiative has been used to finish the construction of a traditional weaver’s home at the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco, a weaving centre that employs more than 500 individuals from the Cuzco, Peru region and encourages the continuation of the 10,000-year-old Andean textile tradition.

ME TO WE ME to WE is all about travel with a purpose – and being part of something larger than yourself. A ME to WE trip is about being immersed in a new culture, fostering genuine connections and seeing the world through a new lens. You will participate in sustainable development projects, connect with community members and explore nature. Plus every trip contributes to the TreadRight Foundation’s partners. To see the range of Me to WE programs, visit adventureworld.com/metowe

WORLD LEGACY AWARDS Adventure World is the proud sponsor of the World Legacy Awards, an initiative of the National Geographic Society. The World Legacy Awards honour the companies, organisations and destinations that are driving positive transformation of the tourism industry, showcasing leaders and visionaries in sustainable tourism best practices.

MACHU PICCHU


“It’s an irritating reality that many places defy description. Machu Picchu, for instance, seems to demand silence. For a while after, you fumble for words, trying vainly to assemble an explanation. In the end, you’re just happy you were there, with your eyes open, and lived to see it.” A NT HONY B OURDA IN


TRAVEL STYLES TAILOR–MADE Our tailor-made journeys are what we do best. They are designed around you; you choose where you go, how long you stay and your unforgettable experiences along the way. Think of our tailor-made journeys in this brochure as a guide, recommended by our expert travel designers, that you can upgrade, amend, extend or simply enjoy as they are.

SMALL GROUP TRIPS

with like-minded individuals. Enjoy the trip without a worry in the world as we look after all the conveniences and comforts – leaving you to explore independently or meet your travelling companions and new local friends.

passages not accessible by large cruise ships with our range of expedition cruises. These enriching travel experiences with your fellow travellers take you up close to nature, wildlife and local cultures with expert guides, lecturers and researchers on hand to bring your journey to life.

CELEBRATION TRAVEL

People take trips to South America for life celebrations and to
