Location
Peru

The soaring peaks of the Andes, mystical ruins of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas are some of Peru’s most famous attractions. You’ll discover these and much more on this amazing adventure.

After exploring the cultural highlights of Cusco, once the capital of the extensive Inca Empire, we commence our trek. You’ll go deep into the wilderness, following trails through glaciated valleys to medieval mountain villages. This stunning trail is much quieter than the busier Inca Trail and is highly regarded by past trekkers as the best way to experience Peru.

On the final day you’ll travel from the village of Ollantaytambo to take in the dramatic view of Machu Picchu from the 'Sun Gate', then spend the afternoon exploring the Inca ruins for yourself.

We finish our challenge with a celebration night to remember in Cusco with live music and traditional Peruvian dancing.
