  • Inca Trail

    Cusco Sports & Outdoors

    Hello everybody!! I would like to share some of my experience on the Inca Trail. I just did it for the first time two months ago and I totally recommend it.

  • Horseriding

    Bogotá Sports & Outdoors

    Having said all that it would remain a memorable experience for a while. All I did was being careful and getting scared of seeing the sudden steep slope of the hill while the horse was running. By the way, my no jacket and just t-shirt wasn that bad I am used to the Danish wind much worse than this. But don forget your jacket anyway.

    I did my Machu Picchu hike with GAP adventures.

  • Mountain Biking

    Cusco Sports & Outdoors

    Even if you are not an experienced cyclist, I would highly recommend taking a mountain biking trip with one of the tour companies (I went with Eric Adventures - $35.)

  • Golf in Buenos Aires

    Buenos Aires Sports & Outdoors

    Every year I organise a golf trip somewhere in the world. After much discussion we decided to go to Buenos Aires. Amazing courses, the best meat and friendly people. My suggestion: Olivos, Buenos Aires Golf, Martindale and San Andres. Our trip was organised by a local golf & travel company. P.S. Night life not to be missed in Recolletta."

    Buenos Aires Sports & Outdoors

    The reason I went to Buenos Aires the first time was because the All Blacks (from New Zealand - my country!) were playing the Pumas - the Argentina team. The New Zealand Embassy helped a big group of us to book tickets to the game and off we went! It was a great experience seeing an team like the All Blacks playing outside of NZ for me. Although...
