Machu Picchu Active Adventure

Explore the Sacred Valley and Hike the "Inca Trail Express" into the Lost City of the Incas!
Machu Picchu is a must on any active adventurer's itinerary, and there's no more exciting way to encounter the ancient Lost City of the Incas than on foot, over a portion of the original Inca Trail. High in the Andes, the ruins rest amid knife-edged ridges draped in emerald jungle. Hidden to western explorers until 1911, when a local Quechua guide led Yale historian Hiram Bingham to the site, the marvelous Inca city was mesmerizing, even in its dereliction. Built on a granite mountaintop close to the sun, its intricate stone architecture reveals the ingenuity of its 15th-century designers. Far below, the Urubamba River rushes through a green gorge into the Sacred Valley. Our journey also includes a tour of Cusco, the once-gilded capital of the Inca Empire, and Ollantaytambo, an Incan royal estate whose ruins offer fascinating grounds for exploration.

Trip Highlights

  • Hike the "Inca Trail Express," a one-day trek on the original mountain route into the ruins of Machu Picchu
  • Take a guided climb up Wayna Picchu, the imposing peak overlooking Machu Picchu and surrounding Andean heights, for stupendous views
  • Visit famed Pisac Market for a chance interact with local artisans and barter for handcrafted textiles, woolen garments and other local crafts
