Follow in the Footsteps of the Incas to Machu Picchu
From exploring the Sacred Valley of the Incas, to sleeping in a transparent capsule off the side of a mountain, this 10D9N journey is the perfect introduction to the region of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Midway through your trip, a 4D3N hike on the famous Inca Trail – the ancient route laid by the Incas – will bring you to the exquisite ruins of Machu Picchu. A thrilling, enriching adventure that will prove to you that in Peru, it’s not just about the destination, but the journey too. Just ask our fellow escapist, Henna.
