Paraty Bootsfahrt
Schöner als die Costa Verde mit ihren hunderten unberührten Inseln und idyllischen weißen Sandstränden geht es kaum. Fahre mit dem Boot entlang der Küste, Caipirinha und Kamera in der Hand. Nutze Zwischenstopps, um im kristallklaren Wasser zu schwimmen oder ein wenig Sonne zu tanken.

Radtour auf der „Todesstraße“
Hol dir deinen Adrenalinkick bei der Fahrt auf der „gefährlichsten Straße der Welt.“ Die Tour beginnt hoch in den Anden auf 4.700 m und führt über die steile und enge Bergstraße hinab in den bolivianischen Dschungel. Nichts für schwache Nerven – nur für echte Adrenalinjunkies!

Tango in Buenos Aires
Lass dich von professionellen Tänzern mit diesem leidenschaftlichen Tanz verzaubern. Der einst wegen seiner Sinnlichkeit verbotene Tango ist mittlerweile das Symbol von Buenos Aires und ein absolutes Muss beim Besuch dieser pulsierenden Stadt. Während der Vorstellung gibt es außerdem ein leckeres mehrgängiges Menü mit argentinischem Wein.

Arequipa Stadttour und Santa Catalina Kloster
Auf einer Erkundungstour besuchst du alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, die die „weiße Stadt“ zu bieten hat.

Kajakausflug am Titicaca See
Deine Reise beginnt frühmorgens mit dem Transfer vom Hotel zum Hafen. Von hier fährst du mit dem Motorboot zweieinhalb Stunden zum Basislager auf der Halbinsel Capachica. Dein Guide erklärt dir das Fahren mit dem Seekajak. Danach paddelst du zur Insel Taquile und kannst unterwegs die Schönheit und Stille des Sees genießen. Nach deiner Ankunft wanderst du zu einem Dorf, wo du ein Mittagessen mit den Einheimischen genießen kannst. Weiter geht es mit dem Motorboot zur Insel Amantaní, wo du deine Gastfamilie für diese Nacht kennenlernst.

Islas Ballestas Tierwelt
Freue dich auf tolle Begegnungen mit Tieren auf diesem Ausflug zu den Islas Ballestas (auch Perus Little Galápagos genannt). Beobachte verspielte Seelöwen, Humboldt-Pinguine, Tölpel, Pelikane und über 200 Meeresvögel. Vergiss deine Kamera nicht!

Baños Canyoning
Bahne dir bei diesem Canyoning-Abenteuer hüpfend, rutschend, abseilend und schwimmend deinen Weg entlang des Rio Blanco und genieße die atemberaubende Natur auf dem Weg ins Herz des Nationalparks Llanganates.

Bootsfahrt zu den Iguazú Wasserfällen
Erlebe das Donnern der Iguazú-Wasserfälle unmittelbarer, als du es dir je vorgestellt hättest! Komm an Bord eines Schnellboots und mach dich bereit für eine hautnahe (und sehr, sehr feuchte) Begegnung mit diesem unglaublichen Naturwunder.

Wanderung zum Rainbow Mountain
Bestaune die Aussicht über bunte, in Rotbraun, Türkis, Lavendel und Gold schimmernde Andengipfel. Sedimente und die Höhenluft und die Nähe zum Meer lassen diese Regenbogenlandschaft hier entstehen, die so unwirklich erscheint, dass man sie mit eigenen Augen gesehen haben muss. Starte früh los für die Fahrt zum Ausgangspunkt dieser herausfordernden, aber lohnenden ganztägigen Wanderung, die dich bis auf 5.029 m führt. Sie ist sehr herausfordernd, aber absolut lohnend.

Bitte beachte, dass sich die Preise/Aktivitäten jederzeit ändern können.

- Cachaça Distillery Visit
Tour a cachaça distillery where sugarcane juice is used to create the most popular distilled spirit in Brazil. If it tastes familiar, that's because it's the main ingredient in a Caipirinha, the country’s national cocktail.

Was ist ein "Yolo-Trip"?
Unserer Yolo-Trips bieten unverfälschte Reiseerlebnisse in kleinen Gruppen für entdeckungsfreudige Reisende, die die Welt so erleben möchten, wie sie wirklich ist. Jeder Trip verbindet die Höhepunkte des Landes mit spontanen Situationen, gewährt dir persönliche Freiheit und ermöglicht dir Begegnungen mit den Einheimischen, zu einem Preis, bei dem dein Taschengeld dort bleibt, wo es hingehört.

Für alle 18-39 jährigen Globetrotter
In unseren Gruppen triffst du die unterschiedlichsten Menschen, und genau das macht sie so interessant. aber eins haben alle unsere Reisenden gemeinsam: sie mögen es nicht, wie Touristen herumgetrieben zu werden.

Lokale Transportmittel
Wie du auf deiner Reise von A nach B kommst, hängt größtenteils von deiner Wahl der Reiseart und des Reisestils ab. In den meisten Fällen benutzen wir lokale Transportmittel - Busse, Taxis und dergleichen - während wir auf Camping-Trips private Fahrzeuge benutzen, damit du deine Sachen leicht unterbringen kannst und wir unsere Zwischenstopps flexibel gestalten können.

Unterkünfte mit Charme
Deine Unterkünfte haben wir so ausgewählt, dass sie der lokalen Kultur am ehesten entsprechen. Je nach Reiseziel und Reisestil haben wir unterschiedliche Unterkünfte für dich ausgewählt: Mal schläfst du im Hotel in Downtown, mal bei einer Gastfamilie und dann zeltest du unter dem Sternenhimmel.

Regionale Küche
Einige Mahlzeiten sind im Reisepreis mit inbegriffen, aber oft kannst du die lokalen Spezialitäten ganz nach deinem eigenen Geschmack und Budget selbst entdecken (und dein Reiseleiter hat dabei viele Geheimtipps auf Lager). Mahlzeiten können alles umfassen - von einem selbst zubereiteten Festmahl, dem Abgrasen der Straßenverkaufsstände in Asien oder allem, was auf dem Markt gut aussieht.

Internationale Gruppen
Unsere Gruppen sind im Durchschnitt mit 14 Personen unterwegs und sind eine bunte Mischung aus Einzelreisenden, Freunden und Paaren jeden Alters aus der ganzen Welt. Du wirst in deiner Gruppe die unterschiedlichsten Persönlichkeiten kennenlernen und auf deiner Reise jede Menge neue Freunde finden. Mit Menschen aus verschiedenen Ländern werden alle unserer Erlebnisreisen auf Englisch durchgeführt.

Erfahrene Reiseleiter
Auf jeder Reise wirst du von einem erfahrenen englischsprechenden Reiseleiter begleitet, der deine Reise mit Einblicken in die Kultur des Gastlandes bereichert und dir oftmals ganz spontan fantastische Erlebnisse ermöglicht, die deine Reise zu einem einzigartigen persönlichen Abenteuer machen. Dein Reiseleiter hat nur ein Anliegen: deine Reise zur besten Erfahrung deines Lebens zu machen.

Freiheit & Unabhängigkeit
Mit einem großen, unpersönlichen Reisebus erlebst du garantiert keine wirklichen Abenteuer. Lust auf einen Marktbesuch? Oder lieber die Seele baumeln lassen in einem gemütlichen Café am Straßenrand? Aber gerne! Bei unseren Reisen zeigen wir dir die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und lassen dir freie Zeit, um dein ganz eigenes Abenteuer zu erleben.

Kein Aufpreis für Einzelreisende
Wir glauben, dass Leute, die allein auf Reisen gehen, dieselben Vorteile verdienen wie die, die mit einem Freund reisen, und erheben daher keinen Aufpreis. Wir suchen dir einen Zimmergenossen gleichen Geschlechts, oder du kannst zu einem kleinen Aufpreis ein Einzelzimmer buchen, wenn du ein Zimmer für dich allein möchtest.

100 % Garantierte Abreisetermine
Die Sicherheit, zu wissen, dass deine Abreise garantiert ist, ist ein unschlagbares Gefühl, und da wir dieses Gefühl so sehr mögen, dachten wir, dass es jeder genießen können sollte. Daher garantieren wir, dass alle Abreisetermine dieser Tour verbindlich durchgeführt werden. Ja, alle. Wenn du gebucht und bezahlt hast, fährst du auch. Garantiert. Wir sagen deine Reise auf gar keinen Fall ab (außer wegen extremen Witterungsbedingungen oder aus Sicherheitsgründen). Versprochen.

Kombireise
Diese Reise setzt sich aus verschiedenen Tourabschnitten zusammen, daher kann sich die Gruppenzusammensetzung und Reiseleitung während der Tour ändern. Ihr reist gemeinsam mit Teilnehmern, welche die Reise entweder schon früher begonnen haben bzw. die diese im Anschluss an diese Tour noch weiter fortsetzen oder auch nur einen Teilabschnitt dieser Reise gebucht haben.

Hinweise

Falls du nicht den Inka Trail laufen willst, kannst du auch zwei Tage in Cusco verbringen und die Gruppe in Machu Picchu wiedertreffen.
