Destination - Cuzco and Machu Picchu

Cuzco
Once the capital of the Inca Empire and today the gateway to Machu Picchu, Cuzco is arguably Latin America’s archaeological and colonial jewel, with stone streets, Inca walls and red-roofed buildings highlighting its beauty and history. In the heart of the city is the lively Plaza de Armas, surrounded by restaurants, bars and beautiful colonial churches.
One of the most beautiful and atmospheric places in Peru, it’s well worth spending time in the Sacred Valley to soak up it’s breathtaking scenery and to explore one of the many interesting towns and villages which lie along the Urubamba River.
Pisac features superb Inca ruins and colourful morning markets, where you can pick up locally made handicrafts. At the end of the Sacred Valley lies the imposing Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo.

Machu Picchu
The fabled “Lost City of the Incas”, retains its mystery, allure and spectacular beauty to leave you breathless and in wonder. The ruins’ rediscovery in 1911 raised scores of questions, many of which remain unanswered today. There are various ways in which you can reach the site, but however you get there, you are sure to leave with more questions than answers.

The little village of Aguas Calientes is also known as Machu Picchu Pueblo (“the town at the bottom of Machu Picchu”) and is nestled in the deep valley below the ruins of Machu Picchu. Reachable by train from Cuzco, it is a popular place with a good selection of entertainment and dining options. An overnight stay here means you can catch an early morning bus (known as the Zig Zag bus) up the mountain to Machu Picchu and enjoy the relative solitude before the arrival of visitors from Cuzco.

The Inca Trail
Without a doubt, the most famous trek in South America, the beautiful but fragile Inca Trail is walked by thousands each year. In order to preserve the future of the Inca Trail, it is no longer possible to complete the trail independently, it must be as part of an organised program. All walkers must be accompanied by a professional guide, which is licensed to escort a maximum of 16 visitors. We recommend booking early to secure your place as there is a limit on the overall daily number of trekkers.
