Peter Frost

Peter Frost, a British explorer, author, and scholar who lives in Cusco, has been a Wilderness Travel Trip Leader in Peru for many years. He has written a classic guidebook to the Cusco region, Exploring Cusco, as well as guidebooks to Peru and Ecuador, and a book about Machu Picchu. Peter has spent 30 years investigating Inca archaeology, and in spring 2002, announced a major discovery that has shed new light on one of the famous but remote Inca royal palaces, Choquequirao. On this expedition sponsored by National Geographic, Peter and his team uncovered the previously unknown and very extensive Inca settlement of Qoriwayrachina, just 22 miles southwest of Machu Picchu. It is the first “lost city” discovered in the Andes since the 1960s. His explorations in the area since then have led to many new discoveries and an expanded view of Choquequirao itself.

Inca Trail Private Journey
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.

We were so lucky to have Peter as our guide. He was so knowledgeable and had great stories to share along the way. I really enjoyed our visit with the Shaman before the trip.
