Description

What better way to arrive at the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu than by adventure? Join us for an action packed 2-day journey that will be a highlight of your trip to Peru.

We start day 1 biking through lush jungle and Andes peaks. Then, we’ll take to the Urubamba River, rafting through rapids as we take in the scenic shoreline. The day closes out at Colcamayo natural hot springs where you can relax in the warm waters and enjoy the 360 degree views of the area.

The next morning we’re up bright and early to begin the final trek to Machu Picchu. We’ll walk for about 2.5 hours on flat land beside the train tracks. This road takes us all the way to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to your final destination. After a short break and bus up the mountain, we arrive to the lost city of the Incas for a guided tour of the magical Machu Picchu.
