  • Take the challenge on Peru's best trek Mount Salcantay to Machu Picchu and help raise much needed funds for Cancer Research.

    The soaring peaks of the Andes and the cultural legacies of the Incas are two of Peru’s most compelling attractions. After savouring the historical and cultural highlights of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas while we take our time acclimatising, we commence our trek. This little-visited trail takes us through breathtaking mountain scenery as we make our way to the foothills of the majestic snow-capped peaks of Salcantay, Humantay and Huayanay. For a week we explore the stunning wilderness of the Peruvian Andes, following trails to 5,000 m in the Cordillera Vilcabamba and establishing camp beneath the spectacular 6,220m Mount Salcantay. This stunning trail is much quieter than the busier Inca Trail and is highly regarded by past trekkers. On the final day we join the classic Inca Trail for the unforgettable sight of Machu Picchu from the ‘Sun Gate’. Rather than rushing back to Cusco, we spend a night in nearby Aguas Calientes for a well-deserved soak in the local hot springs before heading back to Machu Picchu the next day at the best time, as the sun is rising over these dramatic ruins. If you’re looking for an unforgettable encounter with Peruvian culture, history and wilderness—one that gets you off the beaten track but takes in the must-see sights of Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu—then this is the adventure for you!
