DESCRIPTION:

We fly into the former Inca Capital and Spanish colonial city of Cusco, which is our base for this great expedition, a wonderful place full of culture, history, good restaurants and fun night-life. From Cusco, we travel through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, passing the Inca Fortress town of Ollantaytambo, before embarking on the famous Inca Trail to the lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu. This 5-day/4-night trek involves spectacular Andean scenery along an ancient paved Inca trail. We will be visiting many ruins and spending an entire day exploring the awe-inspiring citadel of Machu Picchu. From here, we return back to Cusco along the Urubamba river for a rest day in Cusco, where we can relax and prepare  for the next adventure. The journey from Cusco to Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca is a classic Altiplano traverse through beautiful villages. You will get there by private bus, making many stops along the way. At the lake we'll stay in local houses.  

This experience is perfect for adventurers who want to visit a fascinating country, its people, its history and do it on foot and among the people! We have purposely limited this trek to 14 people which allows for good conversation and assistance when needed. The emphasis is on adventure and comfort since accommodations are in the 3-star range. We are traveling at a perfect time to avoid the crowds yet still catch good weather.
