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.

Hinweis zum Inka Trail
Seit 2002 gibt es Genehmigungen zum Schutz der Stätte und des Ökosystems. Nur eine bestimmte Anzahl von Wanderern (500 pro Tag) dürfen seither auf den Inka-Pfad. Dies schließt Bergführer, Tourguides, Träger, Koch etc. mit ein. Ist die vorgegebene Zahl erreicht, wird der Trail für diesen Tag geschlossen und es sind keine weiteren Buchungen möglich. Es ist daher möglich, dass bei deinem Wunschtermin bereits alle verfügbaren Genehmigungen (Permits) vergeben sind. Wir raten dir daher dich so früh wie möglich (etwa 65 Tage vor Reisebeginn) um die Genehmigung für den Inka-Trail Trek zu kümmern. Dafür benötigen wir folgende Reisepassdaten von dir: Vollständiger Name (wie im Reisepass angegeben), Geburtsdatum, Reisepassnummer, Nationalität und Ablaufdatum des Reisepasses.

Schließung des Inka Trail / Lares Trek
Der Inca Trail ist jedes Jahr im Februar aufgrund von Wartungsarbeiten geschlossen. Die Alternative für die Touren, die davon betroffen sind, ist der Lares Trek. Der Lares Trek führt dich ebenfalls nach Machu Picchu:

Lares Trek: Eine großartige Wanderung durch die Berge und Gemeinden rund um das Heilige Tal mit atemberaubenden Ausblicken auf die schneebedeckte Cordillera de Vilcanota. 3-tägige geführte Wanderung nach Ollantaytambo, danach geht es mit dem Zug nach Aguas Calientes.
