Is This Trip For You?

Perú is one of the most unique countries in the world. Aside from being home to 30 of the world’s 32 distinct climates, it boasts an extremely rich cultural heritage that has been passed down from communities and civilizations dating to long before the famous Inca Empire.

We take you on the Inca trail, Perú’s best-known hike visited by thousands of travelers every year. The classic 26.5 mile trek leading to the Sacred Inca City of Machu Picchu combines the visit of mysterious archaeological sites, amazing mountain scenery and lush cloud forest rich in Andean flora and fauna. 

We’ll reach Machu Picchu - one of the Seven New Wonders of the world - at sunrise on the fourth day of the trek.
