Machu Picchu trek

Posted by | treks | No Comments

Join our trek – 27 April to 7 May 2019

Peru is frequently referred to as the ‘Land of the Incas’ and has some of the most spectacular and varied scenery in South America.  Our route is along an exclusive ‘alternative Inca Trail’, away from the crowded classic Inca Trail. We use a previously unknown Inca Highway, which takes us through some of the most stunning, breathtaking and unspoilt scenery in the world. Our trek starts in the heart of the Urubamba Valley as we follow in the footsteps of the Incas, passing snow capped mountains, glacial peaks and camp overnight in the valleys of small villages, which have changed little over centuries and still use traditional farming methods.

We end the trek passing through the ‘Sun Gate’ and into the lost city of Machu Picchu; Peru’s most famous Inca ruin, which had been abandoned to the forest for over 500 years until it was re-discovered in 1911 by an American historian Hiram Bingham.
