Peru expeditions
  • Reach the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate
  • Hike in the Peruvian Andes
  • Follow the uncrowded Ancascocha route
  • Explore the Inca capital of Cusco
  • Optional Lake Titicaca or Jungle extensions

Your first taste of the Inca world will be in and around the city of Cusco, the ancient Inca capital. After acclimatizing to the high altitude by visiting local Inca ruins and Spanish Colonial churches, you will head towards the remote and uncrowded Ancascocha trail route

This unique alternative to the extremely busy Inca Trail is far off the beaten track, and you will see diverse and spectacular scenery as you glimpse a way of Peruvian life that has remained untouched for centuries. As you walk through these endless stunning valleys you will meet Andean farmers dressed in their traditional brightly coloured ponchos tending herds of Llamas and Alpacas.

Supported by our experienced leader and guides, the hike is slow, allowing for acclimatisation to the altitude and the opportunity to enjoy the unique surrounds and traditional Peruvian culture. The aches and pains will vanish at the end of each day as our friendly porters and chefs make life as comfortable as possible. Exhaustion will turn to euphoria as you step through the Sun Gate to witness Machu Picchu for the first time, making the blood, sweat and tears all worthwhile, and leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.
