Arequipa

QOYLLUR RIT’I FESTIVAL

Qoyllur Rit’i is the snow and star festival of Peru. It is the most important pilgrimage in the entire Andes.

Every year, around May or June, about 100,000 people walk 8 kilometers up high in the mountains to pray the “ Lord of Qoyllur Rit’i ”, at 4,700 meters above the sea level in the region of Cusco. Thousands of dancers and musicians perform and celebrate religious beliefs during more than a week…

RAINBOW MOUNTAINS AND COLORFUL VALLEYS

This trip will take you to the most magical valleys and Rainbow Mountains of the region.

There will be many opportunities to shoot stunning landscapes, and to include in them local people and wildlife.

Over time, I’ve developed an itinerary that allows you to photograph them at the best hours of the day, and away from the crowds…

QUECHUA CULTURE AND TRADITIONAL LIFE

Peru still has a strong and unique identity. The Quechua culture in the mountains of Cusco is very present indeed.

There will be many opportunities to photograph local life in very different types of environment.

People and documentary photographers will also be served on a golden plate during this trip…

TESTIMONIALS

I could not imagine before this trip how incredibly diverse the region of Cusco is ! The itinerary that Nicolas offers is very well thought, both in terms of diversity of the places visited, and the gradual gain in altitude for a good acclimatization. Everyday was amazing culturally and photographically… I’ll blindly join another photo tour with him.

TOMAS ALVAREZ - SPAIN

Amazing trip. Amazing locations. One of the most photogenic country I’ve traveled so far. Nicolas is a very genuine guy, with a great experience and knowledge of the country. I’ve enjoyed every day of the program. I can only recommend !

LI QIANG - CHINA

I’ve been impressed by the country of course, but also by the organisation. Nicolas has a real valuable experience as a tour leader. His privilege contact with the locals that we met was precious. the diversity of landscapes was out of this world… This is without a doubt the best photo tour I’ve ever been on.

GRZEGORZ UJMA - POLAND

IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW BEFORE GOING ON THIS PHOTO TOUR

This trip can be challenging. Cusco city is on 3,400 meters above the sea level, and we’ll go to 5,000 meters a few times. The lack of oxygen is really noticeable at such heights. So it is quite common to suffer a little bit from a few headaches at the very beginning. Also, some of you might be prone to some effects of the altitude sickness. That’s why
I recommend everyone to bring altitude sickness pills such as Diamox or Diuramit.
But you don’t have to worry, because me and my team have got a lot of experience with that, and we’ll always bring oxygen with us.

 

” THERE ARE ALSO A FEW SHORT HIKES IN THE PROGRAM. SO YOU MUST BE IN A GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION TO JOIN THIS ADVENTURE. OBVIOUSLY, YOU DON’T NEED TO BE ABLE TO RUN A MARATHON… IF YOU BOOK THIS TRIP, YOU WILL RECEIVE A MUCH MORE DETAILED PROGRAM WITH ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW DAY BY DAY…”

INTERESTED BUT WITH A LOT OF QUESTIONS ?

I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND, SO LET’S HAVE A ONE-TO-ONE CALL.
