Climb, bike and hike through Peru and discover ancient civilisations on the Inca Trail
Travel to Peru and retrace the steps of the ancient Inca – quite literally as you trek through the fertile heartland of the Peruvian Amazon on foot. Skirt along zip lines, haul yourself up cliff faces using via ferrata climbers and pedal past farming communities as you get closer to the secrets of this elusive civilisation on a breathtaking adventure along the Inca Trail.
This trip requires Inca Trail Permits. View permit availability here.
Climbing the via ferratas in Urubamba is safe yet fun and exhilarating. It allows you to step outside your comfort zone and explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas with an eagle's eyes perspective.
You will mountainbike through local farms and rolling hills normally reserved for llamas and local farmers
Whether you trek the Inca Trail or the equally stunning Quarry Trail, camping under Andes stars is an experience you'll treasure for ever.
This trip visits places that are at high altitude, and as a result some people can suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Health’ section of the Essential Trip Information for more advice on this
This trip involves plenty of physical activity. The trip is recommended for those with a moderate level of fitness
The cycling portion of this trip is within the ability of any rider - thought this will not be the time to learn to ride a bike
For those who do the Inca trail, you'll be camping with basic facilities. It's not exactly the Hilton Hotel, but the rewards of the trek are great.

On June 30th Peruvian authorities released a new list of regulations for visiting Machu Picchu, which came into effect from July 1st. The main points impacting our visits are:
1. There is now a time limit to visit the citadel. Morning visitors must exit the site by 12pm and afternoon visitors by 4.30pm
2. Visitors must complete a designated circuit, in one direction only. Exiting and re-entering the site is not permitted and, upon completion, visitor must exit the site. There is no allowance for personal exploration of the site any longer.
Overall we support these changes as they help preserve this invaluable archaeological site. While this somehow restricts the amount of time we are now allowed to spend in Machu Picchu, we’ll do all possible to maximise your time there and make sure you have the best possible experience.
