Cultural Adventure In The Land of Inca

Peru is a land of incredible natural beauty, rich cultural traditions and mysterious ancient ruins. The lost Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is just one of many ancient ruins making this a premier destination for the explorer-at-heart. Even amid the natural splendor of the country, it is difficult not to notice the cultural, historical and political roots of Peru, observable in the diverse architecture and cityscapes.

Highlights of Peru

The Classic Inca Trail

The Classic Inca Trail

The classic trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a magnificent experience for travelers in physical condition to hike for up to ten hours, with breaks, in a single day. The pace may be daunting for some, but the beauty and history of the area surround the hiker every step of the way. On the last morning, we arrive at Machu Picchu with plenty of time to explore the ruins before returning to Cusco by train.

Rich Culture

Rich Culture

Peru is fiercely proud of its cultural heritage, and this is evidenced in dress, language, food and just about everything else you'll see here. From the floating villages of Lake Titicaca to the pumping heart of modern Lima, one can eat, drink and dance their way from border to border, and still not see everything. You will find Peruvians welcoming, warm and just as curious to learn about you.
