Get the BMTM Experience: A Magical, One-of-a-Kind Adventure
Hey guys! I'm so excited to share trips made especially for female travelers with you!
I want to show you exploration and adventure the way that I see it: playful, intriguing, vibrant, and inviting.
Join me, expert guides, and a group of other adventurous travelers as we explore some of the world’s most exciting and unique places.
Meet like-minded BMTM readers who also want this kind of incredible, immersive experience, get to know new places, and indulge in a trip created for travelers of all backgrounds that will show you what adventurous travel is all about in a safe, attainable, and fun way.
Our groups are kept small and are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. This allows us to all get to know each other and for you to feel less like a number and more like an integral part of the experience, all while giving us access to smaller, local, more authentic, and ecological local operators.
Our first trip to Peru sold out in 11 days! Below you’ll find itineraries for two more trips in 2019:
Patagonia in the beginning of March, designed especially for female adventurers;

Meet Your Guides
Two wanderlust addicts and adrenaline junkies about to take you on an epic adventure!
Chief Adventure Architect
Pete has traveled to over forty five countries and led trips on six continents. He was featured as a leader in Alaska on MTV Made: Extreme Survivalists. His favorite traveling experiences were volunteering for two months at the Tibetan Refugee Assistance Center in India and backpacking for fourteen days through remote areas of Wrangell St. Elias National Park in Alaska. He wants me to tell you that his strongest attribute is ability to pack snacks for a trip, but I think it's his inventive 'would you rather' jokes.
Ambassador of Exploration
Kristin is the founder and main author and photographer of bemytravelmuse.com. She has traveled to over fifty five countries on nearly every continent, hiking, hitchhiking, and solo traveling each time. She's always looking to discover new and exciting things, and to gain a new perspective on old favorites by connecting with locals and finding amazing photo ops. She is passionate about female empowerment and encouraging people to put their fears aside and see the world!
WOMEN'S PATAGONIA TRIP
Wilderness Followed by Comfort
This 15-day Patagonia experience isn’t available anywhere else – We combine both adventure and luxury on this special women’s photography trip.
We’ll start our adventure visiting the Magellan Penguins on Magdalena Island while we gear up to start our hike.
Torres del Paine
We will spend six days taking on the challenge of the full O circuit at the incredible Torres del Paine National Park, known for its dramatic mountains, the bright blue ice fields and glaciers, and golden grasslands. After a full day of hiking through the breathtaking landscapes, we will end each night with hot dinner and comfortable sleep.
Camp all throughout the park, hike next to the third largest frozen body of fresh water in the world, cross the park’s famous suspension bridges, watch the sunrise illuminating the towers that made Torres del Paine famous, and share your incredible journey with a group of adventurous female travelers.
A Luxurious Ending
We will celebrate the end of the incredible journey with comfy beds, delicious meals, and inventive cocktails at the beautiful Hotel Las Torres. We’ll also have access to a few adventures just for hotel guests, like horseback riding and a bus tour that will take us to the breathtaking viewpoints in Torres del Paine that we couldn’t see from the trail. This gives us a chance to get the full picture of Torres del Paine, while resting our tired legs!
Enjoy special photography workshops with Kristin, come home with amazing photos, and have a Patagonia experience that you’ll never forget!
COED PERU TRIP
An Unforgettable Adventure
Enjoy some of the best that Peru has to offer from exploring the vibrant capital, to heading deep into the Amazon jungle, to walking the trail of the ancient Incas. We do it all on this amazing 16-day trip!
Thanks to Pete’s years as a guide, including 15 trips to Machu Picchu, and the success and keen interest from you guys in our previous Peru trip, we’ve decided to repeat this trip with a few improvements that create a bit more time and comfort. We’re excited to return to Peru, and we know that you’ll love it, too.
From Jungles to Mountains
This tour begins with swimming with hundreds of sea lions just outside of Lima, before flying into deep in the Amazon and staying at the highest-rated, most authentic, and most ecologically sound lodge in the area. We will do night hikes, explore the jungles on a canopy zipline adventure, spot wild animals like pink river dolphins, and swim in the Amazon river.
From there, we continue the journey to Cusco, where we will visit the Plaza de Armas, see the vibrant change in culture, and enjoy panoramic views of the city. Finally, we will have a photo excursion to the beautiful multicolored terraced salt pools, Salinas de Maras.
A Hike Through History
We’ll journey to the Sacred Valley and climb over 400 meters of via ferrata and zipline back down while we get used to the altitude. Then, we’ll hike along the incredible Inca Trail for the next four days – one of Peru’s most magical and iconic journeys. Travel the ancient 26 mile/42 km Inca trail and marvel at the natural beauty and Incan ruins along the way with photography workshops from Kristin.
We’ve partnered with one of the best local companies for your Inca Trail adventure, with experienced and knowledgable local guides and truly talented cooks. All of our tents are big enough to sleep four but we’re just sleeping two to each tent, with super comfy sleeping pads, and porters for each guest so that our individual loads are kept to just our own personal gear. We’ll finish our hike with sunrise at the Sun Gate, watching as Machu Picchu illuminates with the sunrise before descending down into the ancient citadel.
We have also been granted a special permit to see the lesser-visited Huayna Picchu, a steep but rewarding climb which gives us yet another vantage point over Machu Picchu.
The trip ends with a final hike to the colorful Rainbow Mountain, a gorgeous and sacred rock formation that looks like a multicolored rock rainbow with greens, rich reds, and yellows.
What Previous Attendees are Saying:
“I had a wonderful time on my BMTM Peru adventure! From the activities that we did before The Inca Trail (salt mines, via ferrata, zip lining, etc.) to the actual Inca Trail, everything was very organized and an absolute blast! Kristin and Pete were both great guides, and did everything they could to make everyone’s trip awesome! I highly recommend to others to go on a BMTM trip, and plan to go on another one in the future!” – Calie
“I was so happy to be a part of the first BMTM group trip. It exceeded my expectations in so many ways….going on group trips, you never quite know how they’ll turn out. But this trip to Peru was amazing!! Kristin planned the perfect itinerary… it was packed full of amazing sights, photography tips, and adventure. But without the annoying group time constraints that large company tours usually have. Kristin and Pete were fun and down to earth and made the trip so memorable along with all of the other individual travelers I met. Couldn’t have asked for a better group. Overall it was an amazing trip that I’ll never forget and I can not wait to join another BMTM adventure!! Thanks so much!!” – Kassandra
“I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up for my first BMTM adventure trip, but from the moment Kristin and Pete greeted me at the airport, I was taken care of! After traveling solo for a year it was so nice to just show up and simply enjoy the adventure knowing that every detail had already been planned for me. We hit the ground running and spent every second exploring Peru. This is not the trip to take if you’re trying to catch up on sleep, but you can sleep later! This experience was the perfect “happy medium” between solo traveling and tour-group traveling. I never felt like a “tourist” being hurdled in a large group, but I did have a guaranteed small group of friends to explore with each day! It was so nice to get to know other solo travelers, and by the end of our two weeks together it’s only fitting to call them family!” – Shelby
