Trekking to Choquequirao

When most people think of hiking to ancient ruins in Peru, Machu Picchu is usually the first thing that comes to mind.

Sure, Machu Picchu is incredible and the surrounding landscape is stunning but it is packed with tourists and their selfie sticks.

But if you want to go trekking and explore Incan ruins away from the crowds, head to Choquequirao.

Follow an ancient trail network that will take you deep into the Peruvian wilderness through deep valleys, across rushing rivers, and over steep mountain passes.

Keep an eye out for wildlife encounters, including Andean condors soaring overhead and unique species of orchids dotting the landscape.

As you approach the ruins, a sprawling complex adorned with stone terraces carve out of the mountainside comes into view. Explore the ceremonial halls, and chambers that once held mummies, and plazas, all offering a glimpse into a moment in time when the Inca Empire was at its peak.

Travel boldly with Global Rescue

If you’re reading this email, my guess is you’re not an ordinary traveler. You love venturing off the trail and journeying deep into the hidden corners of the world.

For an adventure junkie like you, ordinary travel insurance just won’t cut it. Those plans are designed for weekends in Paris, not for kayaking in Antarctica. Most importantly, they don’t cover rescue and a medical evacuation can cost up to $300,000.

So, who will come for you if you ever need to press the red button?

If you’re not sure, plan for the unexpected with Global Rescue, the company that pioneered worldwide field rescue. That means they will come to get you by any means necessary. We’re talking about helicopters, jets, 4X4 vehicles, rescue teams on foot — whatever it takes to get you back home alive.

Voyaging to Tristan da Cunha

Many places claim to be the most remote destination in the world but Tristan da Cunha wins the title. It’s the single most isolated location on the planet. Even Antarctica’s Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is more accessible.

Getting to the “loneliest island in the world” is an adventure in itself. The only way to travel here is by boat over some of the roughest waters around.

As you set foot on Tristan da Cunha, prepare to be awestruck by its dramatic landscapes. Towering cliffs, volcanic peaks, and lush green hills will leave you breathless.

But this island isn't just about jaw-dropping views. Its incredible wildlife also makes it worth a trip.

Watch albatrosses and petrels dancing in the wind. Dive into crystal-clear waters to swim over vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life, from playful seals to majestic whales.

Nestled in the South Atlantic, this remote archipelago is a playground for those who crave untamed beauty and unforgettable experiences.

The mud volcanoes of Azerbaijan

Have you ever heard of a mud volcano? If not, we are doing our job well.

These aren’t like typical volcanoes that spew molten rock from the Earth’s mantle. Mud volcanoes are formed where pressure from underground gases builds up and eventually gets forced to the surface. On the way up, these gases mix with water to create a muddy soup. Some have been known to cause flames and explosions.

There are about 700 mud volcanoes in the world and the country with the most of them is Azerbaijan. A small country perched on the edge of Europe.

The country’s Gobustan National Park is the place to go if you want to see this strange geological phenomenon and find out how Azerbaijan got its name which translates to the ‘land of eternal fire’.
