Peter Frost

Peter Frost, a British explorer and author who lives in Cusco, has been a Wilderness Travel Trip Leader in Peru for many years. His knowledge and love of this region prompted him to write a book about his travels, The High Plain, and a classic guidebook to the Cusco area, Exploring Cusco (Nuevas Imagenes, 1999), now in its fourth edition. Peter has spent 30 years investigating Incan archaeology, and in spring, 2002, he announced a major discovery that may shed new light on the Inca world. On an expedition sponsored by National Geographic, Peter and his team uncovered a previously unknown and very large Inca settlement just 22 miles southwest of Machu Picchu. It is the first “lost city” discovered in the Andes since the 1960s.

Inca Trail To Machu Picchu
We felt very lucky to have Peter as our guide. His knowledge of the Incas enhanced our trip greatly. He was also fun to be around and conveyed his sense of the Incas' spiritual and aesthetic connection with the mountains, rivers, stones, and stars in a way that was very moving.
