Nestled on the west coast of South America, Peru spans across terrain and time.

Travel from the bohemian streets of Callao, through the winding Sacred Valley, over the  planes of the Andean Mountains, and into the oasis of the Huacachina desert. And of course, Machu Picchu. Plus, taste all 3800 varieties of potatoes that Peru has to offer! (Kidding. But you will eat many potatoes and they will all be delicious, we promise.) This trip is flexible to your schedule, so choose our base 9-day trip, or add on some extra time and visit the desert.

The Hike (3 days, 2 nights)

The name of our trail is called Lares (we might say it's Peru's best kept secret). This route offers a glimpse into local life as we follow the trail through small Quechua villages and traverse through the Sacred Valley. Being a lesser-travelled route, you'll feel like you have the Andean mountains to yourself, (not to mention, breathtaking views of the surrounding vistas).

This trek starts and ends in the ancient Inca town of Ollyantaytambo, where you will continue your journey to Macchu Picchu via train. Take the scenic train ride to the mountaintop town of Aguas Calientes, and stay over night, opting to relax your muscles in the nearby hot springs. The next morning, catch a bus ride to Machu Picchu through the winding mountain peaks at sunrise.
