One of the best trips I had. Great company, very picturesque hikes and comfortable accommodations. Everything was organized perfectly with a good balance between hikes, sightseeing and free time. Karina took care of all the logistics, which made the trip very relaxing. We covered a lot of places in 12 days - more than it would be possible on my own. Highly recommended!
Amazing trip - great people, well-organized itinerary, and an opportunity to surround yourself with unbelievable nature all day, every day. A truly refreshing change of pace and surroundings. If you are hesitating about whether to sign up, nervous about traveling with people you don't know, doubting your level of physical preparedness, talk to Karina - and then do it! You won't regret it. This trip is a breath of air and an experience to remember for a lifetime.
It was an awesome trip!! Karina created the best agenda that allowed us to experience different places/things. The local crew/guide was professional and took care everything for us, and the food is better than expected. Karina stayed connected with us before and throughout the whole trip and responded quickly to our questions/concerns. Highly recommended!
This was a fantastic trip, with top-notch organization, carefully selected itineraries and a very professional local crew. The food was delicious and we enjoyed comfy accommodations as well. Karina is on every detail, so everything ran smoothly. Highly recommended!
We spent an excellent and adventurous two weeks with Karina in Patagonia this end of "summer". Karina created the perfect itinerary that allowed us to experience so many unique places there. It was a good mix of hiking and more relaxed days. We were hiking up and down the sides of mountains, walking on glacier (even had whiskey in the Ice Bar), had tour to visit penguin’s colony on Isla Magdalena, city tour, Tango Show and tango lesson. The trip was very robust in terms of activity level, and I would classify it (hiking part) as moderate/strenuous due to the long days of hiking. Five stars for Karina’s planning and organizational skills. I would definitely recommend this trip to my friends, and I look forward to new adventures with Karina.
We had a good team, very excited lookouts. Karina took care of everything from hotel and flights reservations and check ins to places for dinner and lunch boxes during hiking. I had very good time and enjoyed every minute my travel with Karina. Highly recommend. Thank you so much Karina for the great and wonderful adventure.
Thank you for a fantastic experience!
Karina organized a really great agenda for the whole trip and leveraged a top notch travel agency in Cusco for the bulk of the trip. The quality of that team really made the difference imho - the guides were excellent, the organization was highly professional . When my son got sick for 3 days, Karina and Alpaca Expeditions were 100% available to help adjust the plan as needed to deal with the situation. Having someone like Karina organize the trip made a big difference: she knows the right people to work with in Peru.
Amazing experience! I totally recommend this for everyone!
What a great trip! Karina was the best! Even though we did not stay at the Four Seasons Hotels, but the service was far more superior than Four Seasons. Thank you, Karina!
This trip was an incredible experience. Hiking at high altitude was difficult for me but it was a worthwhile experience. We had two awesome guides with us who were very knowledgeable and kept us motivated every step of the way. Machu Picchu views felt way better after hiking there all the way. This was once in a lifetime opportunity and I highly recommend this trip. The food and lodging was amazing too. I am a vegetarian and they took care of it very well. Karina was always available to answer our questions. She provided us complete list of what we would need for the trip and that was pretty helpful. Thank you Karina!
That was an awesome trip. What I liked most: - everything is taken care of for you: tickets, accommodation, transport, schedule - food: amazing fresh food at campsites and hotels - guides: knowledgable and experienced local guides who know history and are always available for any question/issues - program: different hikes, city tours, bus tours (visiting important inkan sites and other historically important places) Also, thanks Karina for being available 24/7 and resolving all questions
What an amazing unforgettable Journey! The tranquility of the mountains, the immense beauty and peace experienced during the hike was surreal. Blessed to meet an amazing group of people so caring and friendly-- to a new found friendship!! Karina did a fantastic job putting together the tour with just the right amount of hiking. So much care and attention were given to make us comfortable during the hike. Being a vegetarian and wheat resistance the chefs took the utmost care of my diet. From the hot water in the morning to the hot water bottles at night during our hike every detail was meticulous. Our guides were so motivating and supportive-- they got us through this amazing experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking an adventure. Karina is super responsive. I say go for it!!! Go Safrika travels--thank you for everything!!!
It was a trip of a lifetime! Karina organized it very very well! The group composition was the key and this is what Karina does better than any other company. The team was compatible and supportive of each other and this is what makes a good trip GREAT!.
It was a well organized trip. We had the best guides, the best hotel accommodations and the best meals during this trip. The hiking part was challenging but very rewarding. Best memories from this trip! Thank you, Karina!
I'm giving 5 stars to this perfectly organized hike to Machupicchu. Even though Karina couldn't join us she was still able to take care of every aspect of the trip. Everything was just awesome including food, transfers, accommodation, treks, and our guide company. I'd recommend it and be happy to come along again! Let me know when you're heading towards Bolivia and Torres del Paine. Спасибо! ))
Thank you Karina! Trip was amazing, very well organized and lots of fun! Would gladly do another trip with you. Just say WHEN!!
Short version: great trip, do it with Karina for the ultimate experience. Longer version: Both my wife and I are avid travelers and don't trust our vacations to anyone lightly. We did good trips with REI and Active Adventures in the past, so we were on the fence about this one. But once we met Karina in person, we were completely sold by her knowledge of the area and its culture as well as Karina's outpouring positive energy. All the communication during the preparation was timely and informative. The hiking guide operators were excellent. All transitions between hikes and hotels were problem free. The food was better than expected. It also helps to have good like-minded group members and that's where we got really lucky. Already miss my new friends! But again, kudos to Karina as good leaders attract good people.
Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Visiting Peru was a huge dream of mine for quite some time and I was thrilled to join this tour. Simply Flawless experience all the way! From the moment I called Karina (Safarika Travel) to get more information about the tour till the moment I returned home, exhausted but so-so happy and full of incredible emotions and precious memories! Amazing-amazing time! Usually I plan and organize my own trips, joining a group tour was a new thing for me, exciting yet unknown. What a great decision I’ve made! Not for a single moment I had any doubts about Karina’s professionalism. Not even once throughout the trip I have looked at any of my flight/transportation details or hotel bookings. Karina was on top of everything! Always very caring and kind, informative and professional. Karina provided us with all the necessary information way in advance before the trip and while we were on the journey. Everything was very well organized. We were only responsible for enjoying Peru and ourselves! What’s even more, Karina was able to gather a great group of like-minded and very interesting people who became a vital part of this fantastic experience. It was so hard to say our Good Byes. Truly blessed with this trip and hope to be able to join Karina in her many other wonderful adventures.
Travel is about new experiences, mesmerizing vistas, incredible new friends, rewarding challenges, and just ... fun. All that and much more was in the Karina's trip to Peru. Karina's planning and organizational skills are exceptional. Her professionalism and knowledge can please anyone. Peru is amazingly beautiful and so versatile country that eight days are not enough to cover it all, but with Karina I got the flavor of the country and know for sure I will be back someday. If you are longing for breathtaking views, interesting people and experiences, challenging summits, uplifting energy, and gourmet food - that trip is for you!


Thank you, Karina, for a wonderful first time experience of active adventure trip! Everything is well thought and organized. Would recommend to anyone!

I traveled with Karina to Patagonia in 2020 and it was awesome! Perfect planning & organization throughout the trip, including dealing with the unexpected (e.g. lost luggage). I really liked other folks in the group and made several new friends in this trip. I highly recommend Karina's trips to casual and semi-serious hikers, and plan to be a return customer myself.
