For those more active this trip will certainly keep you on your toes. Flying over the enigmatic Nazca Lines is second only to Machu Picchu as the most famous archaeological site in Peru. The mysterious geoglyphs at the UNESCO World Heritage Site range from geometric shapes and swirls to hummingbirds and monkeys. Then head to the Huacachina Oasis to ride a dune buggy and enjoy sandboarding while watching the stunning sunset.
Hiking the Inca Trail in Peru is one of the most iconic multi-day hikes in the world. Following this ancient and moderately challenging trail is the ultimate way to reach the spectacular ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Spend four days following in the footsteps of the Incas, walking alongside the river through a lush valley, over mountain passes, and through the tropical cloud forest. There is also plenty of time to explore pretty Cusco and cosmopolitan Lima, both with their fascinating histories and culinary delights to sample!
The Inca Trail is limited in terms of the number of hikers each day, making it incredibly popular in peak season from May to September. Permits are often sold out between 12 and 6 months in advance. Check with us first to see whether permits are still available for your preferred travel dates. For any trekking fan, it is a must. It is a fantastic hike that takes you up to 4,800 metres above sea level. Crucially, spend time in Cusco before you hike to acclimatise to the higher altitude. Cusco is a fascinating city to explore with its Incan and colonial histories. A classic!
