Overview

So remote that it was discovered by Hiram Bingham only 100-odd years ago, Machu Picchu in Peru is now disarmingly accessible.  The journey there by road and rail through an ever-tightening river gorge is all part of an amazing experience of multiple sensations. Everyone is familiar with the dramatic shot of the citadel, astride a series of man-hewn terraces carved into a rainforest-clad mountain saddle at 2,430m in the Andean foothills. A Machu Picchu tour never disappoints: the steep stone staircases, bridges, temples, houses and palaces are easy to explore, and beg to be photographed.

To enhance the experience of your Machu Picchu tour, travel from Cusco via the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Speak to one of our travel experts today to start planning your Machu Picchu holiday today.

The weather in Machu Picchu is wide and varied

Machu Picchu, Peru can be visited throughout the year. With its semi-tropical and humid climate, the city can be shrouded in mist at any time, but you’d be unlucky if the sun didn’t shine at some time during your visit. Most rain falls between December and March.
