Walking Tour In Peru With Amazon Lodge Stay

On this trip to Peru we trek along an extended route of the classic Inca Trail. We hike past Mount Salkatanay (6271m), through the Inca Tunnel and along the ridge of the Urubamba River. Ascending the staircase to the Sun Gate, we view the magnificent citadel of Machu Picchu for the first time. We tour the ancient mystical site including its temples, stairways, palaces and gabled stone dwellings. We end the trip in the tropical Amazon Rainforest; we paddle along jungle-lined river banks in dugout canoes and search for prolific wildlife on walks through forest trails.

Tour Highlights

  • Cusco - Walking tour of the ancient Inca Capital with the option to visit Sacsayhuaman temple-citadel
  • Salkantay Inca Trail - The little-trodden long route to Machu Picchu through stunning high mountain scenery
