The Sacred Valley & Lares Adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu offers the perfect combination of adventure travel and cultural immersion. Combine this experience with any other Peru or South America itinerary.
Choose a 5 or 7 day lodge-to-lodge journey, both alternate between an exploration of the astounding natural scenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and an intimate look at Andean culture in busy towns and in the most-remote of mountain hamlets.
Daily expeditions will lead you along seldom-traveled highland trails surrounded by exquisite snow-capped peaks, past roving herds of llamas and alpacas, around impossibly hued turquoise lakes, and through graceful waterfalls. Your destinations will include fascinating archaeological sites, thought-provoking agricultural and commercial Andean cooperatives.
You will also explore bustling towns and markets showcasing the flavours of the region as well as the wares of its skilled artisans. Most importantly, you will travel to hidden communities unchanged for centuries for a unique up-close visit with local people.
Expert guides tailor the experience with an offer of à la carte activities and daily cultural encounters. At each day’s sunset, settle into deluxe mountain lodges run in partnership with local communities, to prepare for a new day of multi-activity adventure and exploration.
