Admil Arce Yañez

Born in Cusco, Admil Arce Yañez has lived and breathed Andean culture his entire life. His passion for Peru led him to study tourism at a Cusco university, and he became an adventure tour guide in 2004. In the intervening decade and a half, he has led countless hikers along the Inca trails throughout Peru and Bolivia, including National Geographic groups for the past several years. A history buff, Admil is something of a walking encyclopedia, always eager to share insights on everything from local flora and fauna to cultural anthropology, archaeology, and colonial art.
