This Peru adventure tour combines unconventional and active tours with a remote and beautiful trek to Machu Picchu. Hike, bike, raft and camp through Peru`s most famous spots, and discover hidden highlights!
Arrive in Lima and travel to historic Cusco, center of the Inca Empire. Spend the afternoon wandering cobblestone streets, visiting an authentic local market, and learning about Cusco`s most important landmarks.
Explore the Inca ruins of Saqsayhuaman, Qenqo, Pucapucara and Tambomachay on a lovely day hike through the hills overlooking Cusco.
Mountain bike through the beautiful Sacred Valley, stopping at interesting Inca ruins, cascading salt ponds and an exceptional community-based tourism project to gain insight into local traditions.
Continue to explore the Sacred Valley on a thrilling horseback ride. We`ll get to know the agricultural villages that dot the valley, and take in tremendous views of snowcapped peaks and the Urubamba river before returning to Cusco for the evening.
Depart on our Remote Salkantay trek, a less crowded alternative trek featuring stunning mountain views, incredible starry nights, and the misty high jungle.
Challenge yourself on the toughest day of the trek! Enjoy incredible views from mountain passes, including the snowcapped peaks of Apu Salkantay, Huamantay & Tucarway.
Join up with the classic Salkantay trail today for the final pass of the trek. From Salkantay pass enjoy spectacular vistas, then begin the decent to the misty high jungle. As we descend, the scenery will become increasingly verdant, with waterfalls and bromeliads appearing as we approach our camp for the night.
Continue through the high jungle along a clear, cool river. We`ll pass small passion fruit, banana and avocado farms, before arriving at our homestay in a peaceful coffee-producing village.
Continue to Aguas Calientes, at the base of Machu Picchu. Enjoy a hot shower, rest up, and visit local hotsprings.
Explore Machu Picchu! We`ll visit famous highlights, plus lesser-known (but equally) fabulous spots. Add a Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain tour for an extra challenge and amazing views of the ruins from above.
Morning rafting on the gorgeous Urubamba River. Beginning at the Chuquicahuana, enjoy fun class III-IV rapids through a beautiful canyon. Late afternoon return flight to Lima.
Soar above the Limeñean coast during a private paragliding session! From there, enjoy a delicious ceviche lunch at one of Lima`s best restaurants and head to the historic center of the city to explore catacombs, a colonial church, and Plaza San Martin.
Morning international flight home, or continue on to your next destination!
We do not operate our Remote Salkantay trek during wet season (roughly November-March). Alternative treks can be substituted on any private departure.
