immersive journeys to the roots of civilization

Kind Human’s expeditions are nothing like any regular trip. They are intended to be portals to the ancient wellspring of wisdom that shaped humanity. Led by world-class archaeologists and researchers, these journeys back in time are designed to delve deep into the legacy and the mystery of old civilizations, and to open our minds to whole new perspectives on the history of humanity.

Get ready for an experience unlike any other as Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas unveil their enigmatic allure. 

We will wander down cobblestone streets that echo tales of ancient glory and marvel at the architectural genius that brought Cusco to life – a masterpiece sculpted in stone yet aligned with the Universe. 

We’ll witness the jaw-dropping carved precision of colossal building blocks, silent witnesses of the superb skill from this ancient world. It will be thrilling to discover the captivating stories these walls hold, as we unlock the secrets behind their construction and the sacred significance they held for the original builders.

You’ll even experience the largest sundial in the Americas, designed to eternally align with the solstices and equinoxes in a dance of light and eternal harmony.

From glaciers carving through majestic mountains to lush jungles pulsing with life, nature unfolds here in all its splendour. And when night falls, a canopy of stars ignites the sky, revealing a breathtaking spectacle for stargazers.

Sleep is serious business, especially when the days are packed with activity and excitement. During our expeditions we rely on the best local boutique hotels and eco lodges – places where you can be sure to find not only comfortable and cozy accommodations, but more importantly a history, a soul, and a genuine desire to preserve and share the local natural and cultural heritage.

For the first time in my life, history wasn't a string of dates; it was a living, breathing testament to human potential in harmony with the environment, connecting past, present and future.
