Shrouded in mystery and surrounded by incredible natural beauty, Machu Picchu stands among the world’s most extraordinary archaeological sites. Explore it in depth on this 6-day journey from Cusco, where the treasures of Peru’s complex heritage shine like diamonds in the Andean mist. Venture into the verdant Sacred Valley to uncover incredible ruins and meet local residents, then hike the short version of the Inca Trail, watching in awe as the great lost Inca city comes into view from Sun Gate.
- This concise itinerary is an excellent option for those wanting to experience trekking in Peru, but don’t want to do the full four days.
- Visit Machu Picchu not once but twice, entering the first time through the Sun Gate at the end of the trek, then the following morning for a guided tour.
- Travelling independently is a dream in destinations like these. Your itinerary is flexible, and you still get the benefit of local guides – as well as a greater chance of having the views from Sun Gate all to yourself.
- There's so much more to this trip than Inca ruins. Discover Peru's cultural heartland on a walking tour of Cusco, and travel into the lush Sacred Valley for lunch with a local community.
