Discover southern Peru's Inca ruins, highland scenery and lush rainforest
Peru has been home to many civilisations, most notably the Incas, whose ancient cities and fortresses are still being discovered across this fascinating region. Our three-part itinerary includes the Inca Trail, which takes in beautiful mountain and jungle scenery as we follow a historic route to Machu Picchu, the best-preserved and most stunningly situated Inca ruin. We also explore the harsh landscapes of the high altiplano and the islands of Lake Titicaca and, in complete contrast, the dense jungles of the Amazon Rainforest.
Moonstone Trek Option
We now offer the Moonstone Trek as a fantastic, more challenging and isolated trekking alternative to the Inca Trail route on this trip - and no permits are required! For more information please visit Moonstone Trek Option page.
What makes this trip responsible?
On this trip, we operate a zero-impact policy on the Inca Trail, removing all waste from campsites and separating it so that it can easily be recycled or composted. Using a toilet tent at our lunch stops and in camp removes the need to dig holes at campsites, and alleviates the waste problems caused by the fixed toilet blocks. Our camp staff are paid a fair wage and receive all accommodation, transport and food during the trek. They are also trained and encouraged to put environmental protection practices into use in their own communities.
