We'll be following the ancient route of the Incas, exploring the Andes and uncovering the mysteries of Machu Picchu.

Your trekking challenge begins in the Inca capital of Cusco – a fascinating city full of colonial charm, hidden deep in the Andes Mountains. There are many trails throughout Peru, but only the

original Inca Trail leads us along gushing rivers, through ancient tunnels and over high mountain passes to the Sun Gate.

The sight of the magnificent lost city of Machu Picchu appearing through the morning mist is one that will live with you forever!
