HIGHLIGHTS
  • Explore fascinating Cusco, where indigenous, Spanish and contemporary influences co-mingle to create cultural, architectural and culinary atmospheres that can be found nowhere else in the world.
  • Enjoy scenic, off the beaten path acclimatization hikes in the beautiful Sacred Valley.
  • Challenge yourself with our Remote Salkantay trek, which combines stunningly beautiful and seldom visited areas with the classic Salkantay route. This is an excellent combination of remote, high altitude trekking with gorgeous, world-renowned route.
  • Visit majestic and mysterious Machu Picchu, surrounded in mist and perched high above a dramatic river valley.
Overview

The famous Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu passes along gorgeous Salkantay mountain, one of the highest in the region. The route features physical challenge through incredibly diverse scenery, plus a final day at magical Machu Picchu

Our Remote Salkantay trek route improves on this classic trek with key changes; we skip noisy campsites, trek through remote, beautiful areas that few visitors have seen, and gain additonal time in higher altitude areas to enjoy time with the awesome snowcapped peaks Salkantay is celebrated for. Prior to departure, we`ll spend the day getting to know the best of Cusco and the Sacred Valley with scenic hikes and visits to Inca ruins, traditional towns, and little-known highlights!

As with all Ayni Peru travel, this itinerary can be customized or combined with tours throughout Peru and Bolivia. You are also welcome to reserve the trek portion only. Please contact us for custom itineraries, quotes and questions.
