A Glance at Some of our Tours

We offer treks, tours by train and even day tours around Cusco and the Sacred Valley. No matter how you want to travel, we are here to help.

We can even help with your full itinerary around Peru, personalized for your needs. Here is a quick look at some of our most popular...



Classic 4D/3N Inca Trail

The most popular of all treks in Peru. Spend 4 days passing through beautiful scenery and amazing inca ruins without the crowds of Cusco. This is the only hike that allows you to hike directly into Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate. (REQUIRES A PERMIT)

Salkantay Trail - Alpaca Expeditions


5D/4N Salkantay Trek

Get higher up in the Andes, closer to the mountain peaks and then make your way down through different micro-climates. Views are stunning - you will love every step especially on night three when your campsite offers views of Machu Picchu in the distance.



4D/3N Lares Trek

Take this beautiful route up in the mountains and get the opportunity to meet the actual descendants of the Incas. This is a beautiful, genuine experience of meeting the Andean people learning about their culture and traditions.

Lares Trek to Machu Picchu 4D/3N


2D/1N Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu

Head to the Sacred Valley to explore the valley of the Incas visiting Pisaq, Ollantaytambo and more. Then head by train to Machu Picchu. Perfect for those who want to skip the hike.

Trekking Advice

We can't stress this stronger - even for the most experienced hikers. These trails were created by the Incas and are uneven. Walking sticks help especially on the downhills (especially on the Inca Trail) and fold up if you prefer to tie on your bag for the times you don't need them. Make sure you have rubber tips if you bring your own.
