Overview & Highlights

Trekking, biking and river rafting deep in rural Peru.  Includes trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, cycling in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and white-water rafting in Andean canyons descending to the Amazon.

  • Guided walking tour of Lima
  • Walking around Huilloc and Pumamarca

  • Guided tour of Machu Picchu
  • Tour of the city of Cusco and nearby ruins
  • Apurimac river rafting (private departure)

This is an adventurous, active holiday which uses the flexibility of walking, biking and river rafting to give you a different perspective of the Cusco area of southern Peru. Hike the famous Classic Inca Trail to the ruined Inca city of Machu Picchu, cycle in the Sacred Valley and raft down the upper reaches of the River Apurimac, a tributary of the Amazon, in glorious, remote canyon landscapes. 

You will get under the skin of Peru at ground level: instead of whizzing around in a coach you’ll be exploring under your own steam. Discovering essential cities on foot, you can pop down narrow alleys and weave your way through produce-crammed markets. You will amble through the countryside along farm tracks and narrow broom-lined paths, cycle along quiet country lanes, and hike one of the Andes’ most staggeringly beautiful mountain trails. Add to this the experience of rafting the rocky gorges of the Andes as they clamber down to the jungles of the Peruvian Amazon, you’ll arrive home fit, and exhilarated.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

This tour is an excellent introduction to Brazil and will appeal to anyone with an interest in wildlife and landscapes.  In the Pantanal, there are excellent chances to get quite close to many birds, mammals and reptiles.  But having an armadillo sit on my foot at dinner was quite a surprise.
