Why you'll love this trip
  • Spend one day hiking a section of the Inca Trail and emerge triumphant atop Machu Picchu, a bucket list item for many.
  • Descend from the Salt Flats of Maras on a mountain biking adventure like no other, riding around thrilling bends and past incredible scenery.
  • Stay overnight on a floating island with a host family at Lake Titicaca for a truly unique local experience.
  • With travel through remote areas, a homestay and engaging history lessons from a local leader along the way, this tour immerses your family in a new culture.
  • This tour is designed for active families with teenagers – the kind of families that love adventure and doing thing differently, together.
  • At Intrepid we’ve always been about balancing profit and purpose and as the largest B Corp certified operator on the Inca Trail we’re committed to operating our treks for the benefit of all – join us and help make the world a better place.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about our Intrepid Foundation partner, Awamaki.

Is this trip right for you?
  • The Andes mountains are breathtaking, but the heights reached on this trip can cause some people to suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Medical and health information’ section of Essential Trip Information for more details on this.
  • Navigating the rugged terrain and in this region is unforgettable. The trade-off is that some of the activities can be challenging – particularly with the altitude. You will need to be moderately fit in order to enjoy the included activities on this trip. It's important to be patient as your body adjusts and alert your guide if you are feeling unwell.
  • It’s best to wear layers at all times of the year in case conditions change during the day. At night the temperature can really drop, so bring warm clothes.
  • Staying with a local family on Lake Titicaca is a rewarding and authentic travel experience, but keep in mind that the facilities will be basic. Water is cold, meals are simple, and bathrooms are shared.

Great well paced trip with an excellent guide, Julio, and a fantastically well matched group of 3 families with teenagers who got along really well. Highly recommended.
