Machu Picchu

No matter how you get there or how many tourists are there, the city of Machu Picchu is still one of mankind's most incredible creations!


Hiking tours to Machu Picchu

Many are the routes that take you to Machu Picchu, but none is like the Inca Trail Tours, the most famous pedestrian path in the Americas. After flying from the capital of Perú, Lima, you will arrive in Cusco to walk for four days along a path through forests and dense fog, millenary stone steps and discovering the ruins of ancient fortifications and Inca cities, and all the time enjoying majestic views. 

If you want to visit Machu Picchu, we recommend you to book your Machu Picchu Ticket in advance, so you will enjoy your Vacation in Machu Picchu without any problem.


When is the best time to hike to Machu Picchu?

The best season is during the dry season, which covers the months April to the end of September. In October the rains begin and you can find Machu Picchu covered by clouds. If you travel in June, we recommend you to book the Inti Raymi 2020 Tour that takes place in June 24th, and also hike the Palcoyo Mountain Tour, which is an incredible Rainbow Mountain located in the Andes. 


This high jungle citadel built by the Chachapoyas culture is called Machu Picchu of the Northern Peru and it has a potential to become the second most important tourist destination of the Peruvian ancient country!

From there, you can search many rainforest animals such as giant river otters, black caimans, snakes, pumas, monkeys, cabybaras, sloths, a huge number of birds and fishes, etc. You also find here the biggest number of plant species along with over 500 hundred year old trees!!


Stay on the Lake Titicaca

Stay in a rustic electricity free cottage on either Amantani or Taquile island with a local family to experience peasant life of the islands opening yourself up to a quite new way of living!


Islas Ballestas

The islands are called the "Galapagos of the Poors" as its entrance and tours are not even a fraction of Galapagos prices while you can find there almost the same fauna! The islands are home to sea lions, Humboldt penguins, cormorants, gulls and a big number of other marine birds. Take a boat tour there to see the Candelabro, a huge petroglyph on a nearby shore!

Nazca Lines is a set of enormous petroglyphes created by ancient pre-Incan Nazca culture! The petroglyphes, which display monkeys, spiders, hands, orcas, fish, sharps, lizards, many geometric lines, etc., are located in a desert near the town of Nazca covering many square miles! To fully appreciate the Nazca Lines, you need to take a flight in a tiny aircraft.


Mountain Biking

This sport takes off in many areas of the country! Try to bike around coast-line near Lima, among Cusco's archaeological sites or in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.


This is a favourite activity when in the desert oasis of Huacachina near Ica City! Try giving a ride on sand dunes as this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!


Tasting Wine and Pisco in Ica
Head for Ica to get a taste of Peru's largest vineyards! Sample the Fond du Cave and a variety of Pisco drinks at the modern facilities of Ocucaje. You can also visit some of rustic smaller vineyards and distillities using unchanged methods since the Colonial times.

Peru can offer one of the best surfing opportunities! You can give a try to this most popular coast sport either close Lima's beaches (a bit crowded though) or better in Huanchaco, a beach just a few minutes far away from Trujillo. Or even better, make a trip to Chicama for the world's longest left-breaking wave!
