This is really happening.
Geckos Adventures have created Pokémon: Let’s Go, which they’re billing as the ultimate Poké-trip, giving travellers the chance to be among the first to capture pocket monsters in remote destinations.
The tailor-made six-week trip has reportedly been created using innovative technology and data to predict likely pokéstops and gym locations, and will give you the chance to catch Pikachu at Machu Picchu, spot Snorlax in San Cristobal in Galapagos, get Gabite at the Great Pyramids of Giza and capture Cloyster at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat.
Trip highlights will include exploring temples in Southeast Asia, spotting iguanas and tortoises (like, actual iguanas and tortoises, not their Pokémon equivalents) in the Galapagos Islands, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru and riding camels in Egypt.
James Thornton, managing director of Geckos Adventures, says the tour will give travellers a chance to take their game to the next level while opening their eyes to the rest of the world.
“Exploration and adventure is at the heart of Geckos,” he says, “and we are excited to be giving Pokémon Go fans the ultimate real-world adventure!”
The trip costs $9,800 per person, and departs from Lima, Peru on 28 August, before ending in Bangkok, Thailand on 10 October.
