Here's what people are saying about our hiking adventures:
“Peru was a celebration of my 50th birthday and I was lucky enough to have spent it with a group of adventuresome friends. It was truly the program of a lifetime. Don’t wait for ‘someday!’
“This was a trip of a lifetime. I learned so much about the Incas, Peru, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. Hiking the Inca Trail was challenging both intellectually and physically. I would strongly recommend this to those that are ready to push themselves to the limit and step out of their comfort zone!”
Let your feet carry you into natural beauty, mystery and even spiritual awareness on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The Inca constructed an advanced road and trail system over which agile runners would deliver messages (in the form of knotted cords known as quipu) and even carry fresh fish into the highlands for the ruling class. Led by experts, hike the most famous stretch of this road system, passing through lush cloud forests and alpine tundra and examining Incan ruins before successfully arriving at the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu.
