    Active in the Andes

    Multi-activity adventure on Inca trails and waterways culminating at Machu Picchu

    Hike, bike, raft, and engage with the people of the Andes in one all-encompassing itinerary. Run the rapids of the Rio Apurimac and pedal across the mystical Chinchero Plain into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Encounter the secrets of the Lares Trail on your hike toward Machu Picchu, winding among ancient ruins, epic scenery, and villages of the closest descendents of the Incas, eager to show you their traditional weavings. (You may wonder why we have chosen to skip "the" Inca Trail on this trip in favor of this trek, and it is for the cultural experience, which augments views that rival the more famed path. Plus, we will avoid the crowds that detract from the more heavily traveled route.)

    Go deep into the experience of the Andes and see it from all breathtaking angles. From the dramatic snow-capped peaks to the lush, green valleys, our journey through Peru offers every flavor of excitement and adventure you can imagine, and more that will surprise and delight you. If you're always on the go, if you like variety, if you appreciate a solid challenge, if you enjoy feeling small against the vastness of nature, if you are an intense explorer...

    Active in the Andes is yours to conquer.
