Our most recent trip with Hidden Places, the La Rioja Bicycle tour, has only confirmed our high regard for the quality and attention to detail that make their trips beyond parallel. Starting in Pamplona, we enjoyed seven days of riding through gorgeous, verdant green countryside, through lovely historic hilltop villages, through wildflowers, vineyards, fields of wheat and oats, and alongside many pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. We toured an underground winery in Laguardia, a monastery dating to the 11th century, the Frank Gehry designed winery in Elciego and the most amazing wine museum, Vizcano, with a world class collection of everything wine! Our lodgings, always beautiful and a welcome sight after a day’s ride, varied from a repurposed flour mill to historic convents. And the food . . . beyond description, always fresh, always beautifully presented, and always nearly too much ☺ The trip was more than we ever could have imagined, the hallmark of Hidden Places Travel.

It would be remiss not to mention the best part of it all, our guides Lukas and Laura who took great care of us, made us laugh, taught me more wildflowers and kept us all going and enjoying. Again, Dag and Maria always get the best! Thank you!

Crossing the Antarctic Circle on the Hebridean Sky - what can I say? I struggle for words to describe this magical experience, but I'll try! It was truly life changing. Kayaking south of the Circle, seeing marine life up close and personal, camping in a bivy sac on Horseshoe Island were all magical and my soul will never be the same.

This was my fourth trip with Hidden Places, and I can't recommend them highly enough. One of the many reasons, but perhaps the most important, is that I know the experience will be personal and not just another touristy type trip. Maria and Dag always go out of their way to make sure we're prepared before leaving, and afterward follow up to make sure everything went to plan. I look forward to more adventures with them!

If I could give 10 stars to Maria, Dag and the rest of the crew at Hidden Places Travel, I would. My husband and I just returned from an absolutely magical 13 day trip to one of the most beautiful places on our planet, Myanmar. From the first guide in Yangon down to every last detail, no stone was left unturned. We had a fabulous time exploring tiny villages, incredible workshops, marketplaces, "factories" not OSHA approved, and off the charts meals and lodging. We never felt in danger and in fact, felt safer there than in downtown San Francisco - even at night. Everything was top notch and I do hope they continue offering this as a destination as it simply a magical country, and people to visit. Some of the nicest hotels we have ever been in with some of the most beautiful vistas; Hidden Places hit it out of the ballpark. You've got a new client, Maria and Dag. A million thanks!

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.
