Custom | 8 Days | Easy to Moderate Touring and Active
  • A private, custom-designed journey with active options
  • Hike to stunning views of Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas”
  • Discover Cusco’s living Incan walls and Spanish colonial structures

There’s no need to leave the kids at home when traveling to a country as rich in cultural wonders and outdoor fun as Peru. This smartly planned journey delves into both, making for a highly engaging multigenerational trip into the heart of the Inca empire. You'll make your way through the Sacred Valley, kayaking, ruin discovering, and engaging with Quechua folk. You’ll discover the long-lost jungle city of Machu Picchu and saddle up to Cusco's fascinating archaeological sites on horseback. Mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and a traditional Andean barbecue may also await.

ITINERARY


Our trip was so wonderful. We really loved our guide and how he personalized the trip for us...The shaman ceremony was very eye-opening!...Hiking was, of course, great as well. We genuinely liked everything about it—how balanced the itinerary was, how luxurious our hotels were, how informative our guide was, etc...We got a lot of great photos!
