Trip Motif Wildlife Natural History Machu Picchu The Sacred Valley : Journey Highlights





Past mingles with present as you get to know the people, places, and pleasures of Peru. Explore the cradle of the Inca Empire with a deeply knowledgeable Peruvian guide on this rich journey beginning in Sacred Valley and continuing on to the mysterious Machu Picchu, and the cultural riches of Cusco and Lima. Each destination features a well-positioned, wonderful lodge, and each evening, dine in a different local restaurant.

One of the great features of this journey (along with exceptional guiding) is the daily choice it gives you to be more or less active, and pursue your personal interests. Walk from village to ruins – or catch a ride. Kayak and stand-up paddleboard – or visit a market and take an outdoor cooking lesson. Trek to a high point to look down on Machu Picchu –or stay grounded in the ancient city. Hike to Mandor Waterfall – or visit a spectacled bear conservation project.

From the llamas and traditional weavers of Awanacancha to the multi-colored salt mines of Maras, and the magnificent mystery of Machu Picchu to the aqueducts, waterfalls and terraced rocks of Tambomachay, this is a remarkable “off the beaten path” journey.
