This is a unique trekking route where you'll hike through pristine unspoilt Andean scenery, walking ancient Inca Trails and passing by local communities. This trek is all about getting away from the overcrowded thoroughfares of the Classic Inca Trail and getting out into the real Andes - not to mention being part of a project which provides a genuine, direct benefit to the host communities we travel through, by supporting education, income generation and environmental sustainability projects
  • Sacred Valley guided tour
  • Trek the Wild Andes trail for a truly unique perspective
  • Guided tour of Machu Picchu by local expert
  • Relax in the vibrant and cosmopolitan centre of Cuzco
  • ​The trek itself is about the same as the Classic Inca Trail in terms of length and difficulty, taking three to three and a half days and ascending to about 4,700m when you cross the highest pass. The scenery is truly magnificent, spectacular mountain peaks, verdant hillsides dotted by isolated villages and the odd llama and alpaca and you are unlikely to see another tourist here. Although you won't trek into Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate as on the Classic Trail, you will arrive at Machu Picchu well rested after a night in a comfortable hotel and ready to get the most out of the tour of this magnificent site
