Active Peru: Cycling, rafting and the Inca Trail

13 days from £3,368pp
 

Private Journey

 
This is an adventurous, active holiday which uses the flexibility of walking, biking and river rafting to give you a different perspective of the Cusco area of southern Peru. Hike the famous Classic Inca Trail to the ruined Inca city of Machu Picchu, cycle in the Sacred Valley and raft down the upper reaches of the River Apurimac, a tributary of the Amazon, in glorious, remote canyon landscapes. 

You will get under the skin of Peru at ground level: instead of whizzing around in a coach you’ll be exploring under your own steam. Discovering essential cities on foot, you can pop down narrow alleys and weave your way through produce-crammed markets. You will amble through the countryside along farm tracks and narrow broom-lined paths, cycle along quiet country lanes, and hike one of the Andes’ most staggeringly beautiful mountain trails. Add to this the experience of rafting the rocky gorges of the Andes as they clamber down to the jungles of the Peruvian Amazon, you’ll arrive home fit, and exhilarated.

What our experts say

When I took my children to Peru Last year I knew we could not miss out on one of South America’s biggest highlights, Machu Picchu. Knowing how altitude sickness could affect our trip, I arranged for our family to head straight to the Sacred Valley which is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu. Staying at a lower level than Cusco meant we could gradually acclimatise without any problems at all.
