The challenge

  • Reach the lost city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate
  • Admire the spectacular mountain scenery
  • Follow the uncrowded Lares Valley route
  • Explore the Inca capital of Cusco
  • Optional Lake Titicaca or Jungle extensions

The lost city of Machu Picchu sits on the bucket list of many and with good reason; it’s simply breath-taking.

Gruelling yet rewarding, the Trek to Machu Picchu challenge follows the spectacular and uncrowded Lares Valley route, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, raging rivers, hot springs and remote mountain communities. Supported by our experienced leader and guides, the hike is slow, allowing for acclimatisation to the altitude and the opportunity to enjoy the unique surrounds and traditional Peruvian culture. The aches and pains will vanish at the end of each day as our friendly porters and chefs make life as comfortable as possible.

Exhaustion will turn to euphoria as you step through the Sun Gate to witness Machu Picchu for the first time, making the blood, sweat and tears all worthwhile, and leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.

Having the opportunity to interact with the local community was fantastic. It felt like we were helping to support them, as well as raising money for our Charities. The guides were so knowledgeable and passionate that it made the experience even more special.

This is the best and hardest thing I have ever done. I wanted to leave my 50's on a high, and I genuinely did that in Peru! A fantastic experience!

The absolute BEST DAY for me was reaching Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate along the Inca trail...that was outstanding and something I’ll never forget! Thanks for an unforgettable experience.
