Take on one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu, and the stunning Inca sites surrounding Cusco in this amazingly unforgettable Peru adventure.

Our 10-day trip will begin in the Inca Capital of Cusco, a fascinating city full of colonial charm, where we’ll acclimatise to the 3,300m altitude. Once we’ve discovered the famous Inca sites in the surrounding area, we’ll begin our once-in-a-lifetime Inca trail trek to Machu Picchu. The trail encompasses three high mountain passes - the highest being 4,200m - and will definitely test us, but upon seeing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, any fatigue will be forgotten as we stand proudly together. From porters and chefs to medics and guides, you will be supported every step of the way as you take the journey to tick this amazing adventure off your bucket list!
