These days, Machu Picchu is recognisable to people all over the world. It springs up in history books, on our friends’ Facebook walls and in – ahem – many a travel brochure. But it wasn’t always so. After the Incas abandoned their citadel in the 1500s, Machu Picchu remained hidden from the Spanish conquerors for centuries, used sporadically by local peasants until its discovery by an American archeologist in 1911.

It’s easy to understand why so many tourists embark on a Machu Picchu trek each year, and why the site recently became one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Standing at the Sun Gate as the mist lifts off the mountains, it’s impossible not to feel just this: a worldly sense of wonder.

We incorporate a Machu Picchu tour into all of our small-group Peruvian adventures. Whether you want to hike through cloud forests along the classic Inca Trail, challenge yourself on the quieter Quarry Trail or simply take the train, our local leaders will keep you safe, informed and inspired every step of the way.
