At Pura Aventura, we like nothing more than the chance to share stories about ‘our’ destinations. We are also partial to a glass of wine and a good chat.

Therefore, we would be delighted if you were able to join us and our guest speakers to talk about Peru and the Galápagos Islands.

We will be joined on the night by Richard Wollocombe, BBC filmmaker who has lived in the Galápagos Islands on and off for 25 years, first as a naturalist guide and later as wildlife cameraman for Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II.

Richard is the man responsible for the legendary ‘snakes vs iguanas’ scenes from the latter. Sharing some of his remarkable photography and footage, Richard will explore the uniquely precious nature of the archipelago’s wildlife and landscapes.

Along with Richard, our long-term partner in Peru, Gabriela Valdez, is flying in to join us. As her country’s main attractions grow in popularity, what is that we actually experience when we visit? Gaby will share her very personal stories about the human history and culture of the Sacred Valley, Cusco, and Machu Picchu.

Pura Aventura support Galapagos Conservation Trust (GCT), the only UK registered charity to focus exclusively on the conservation of the Galápagos Archipelago. They’ll be with us on June 14th, so you can chat to them over a glass of wine then, or visit to find out more about their valuable work.

RSVP: email or call 01273 676712 by May 31st, please.

I do hope you’ll be able to join us and look forward very much to seeing you there.
