I’m so excited to announce this adventure of a lifetime in Peru, something that has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Come away with me to walk the classic Inca trail, well known to be a bit of a challenge but worth every step. We’ll take in stunning views of snow-capped peaks, visit ancient hilltop forts and archaeological sites. We’ll walk past the grazing llamas and see the orchid-filled cloud forests before arriving into Machu Picchu on the fourth day of the trail. Here we will have an exclusive tour of the archaeological site.
Before trekking through the Sacred Valley of the Incas we start in Lima with a guided tour around the best bits of this buzzing metropolis as well as a stay in the oldest city in South America – Cusco. This trip is a cultural extravaganza as well as a physical challenge. We’ve also squeezed a day off the beaten track seeing the Andes from a unique perspective, 3,720 meters above sea level on a Stand-Up Paddle Board. And finish with a visit to Palcoyo, known locally as the mountain of colours, your hike here will take in rainbow landscapes that could be from another planet.
Just a quick note on the hiking:
The Inca Trail is within the abilities of most reasonably fit people, but please come prepared, as the trail is 45 km long and often steep. Each day’s journey generally consists of 7 hours of walking (uphill and downhill) with stops for snacks and lunch. Trekking usually begins at 7 am (except on the fourth morning) and you reach the campsite around 5 pm. Accommodation on the trek is camping (three nights). Double tents (twin-share) and inflatable camping mats will be provided. The porters will set up the tents while the cook prepares meals. The rest of the time we will be in carefully chosen boutique hotels in Lima and Cusco.
The full 10-day itinerary for the Peruvian adventure is available to download. It includes essential day by day trip information as well as packing lists, medical notes and other helpful guidance.
