The “Boutique” Way to Visit Machu Picchu

Our Machu Picchu tours are locally guided expeditions to put you best in touch with the history and archaeology of this spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site. Choose to stay at boutique hotels or mountain lodges linked along the Salktantay Trail or Lares region along the northern stretch of the Sacred Valley. Our specialists can customize your Machu Picchu tour to a range of lengths, and advise on the best small-group treks or private trips to ensure this once-in-a-lifetime experience is the best it can be for you and your travel companions. Our guidance extends from which hike to choose to the best way to get the most out of your Machu Picchu experience.

Immerse Yourself in the Amazon

Exploring the Peruvian Amazon from an eco-lodge is a true immersive experience as you must boat-in along the Madre de Dios River to even get to your lodge. Similarly, our Peru Highlights trip takes you on a guided journey to explore some of the country’s hidden gems, like Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca. If you’re open to exploring the greater Amazon region that extends into Ecuador, view our broader selection of Amazon tours.

Our Style of Peru Treks

Peru treks are commonly misconstrued as only for incredibly fit backpackers. This is not true, and in fact we have tours and treks for all fitness levels. Many of our Peru treks are lodge based with active guided hikes by day and a hot shower, delicious meal, glass of wine and comfortable accommodations each night. By day, expect to hike through incredible cultural and scenic landscapes. Each night, sleep in a comfortable bed surrounded by nature and awake rested for another day of adventure. Even our camping treks are upscale by trekking standards, distinguished by the latest high-quality gear combined with a team of guides, porters and cooks providing superior service so you can focus on the experience while leaving virtually no impact on the land.

Read This Before You Pack for Peru

Know before you go that Peru’s climate is quite distinct between its geographical regions and elevations, and on some of our Machu Picchu treks you will be at a range of elevations all within a week so you truly might need to pack for it all: snow, rain, heat, sun and humidity. Note that the climate data above is for Cusco, Peru, but keep reading for climate tables detailing Peru’s diverse weather by location.
