Get off the beaten path in the highlands of Peru and discover stunning mountain scenery and remote cities few tourists visit. Getting to Cusco is half the adventure—travel by public bus keeps costs down and allows you to connect with the locals in the rarefied mountain air of the Andes. Climb the legendary Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the ‘Lost City of the Incas’. We operate our own treks in Peru and can ensure the fair treatment of our porters—and an exceptional experience for you.
