Walking Holidays in Peru

The Inca Empire made its home in the Andes and it is often said that Peru has a unique fusion between history and natural environment. For mountain lovers, it is comparable with the Himalaya, but it also has an unrivalled history that sets it apart from any other mountainous area in the world. 

The Inca Trail is a ‘must’ for any walker and is the most famous trek in South America. It was constructed as a highway connecting Cuzco with the lost city of Machu Picchu. The original trail has been carefully and comprehensively restored and, although it can be quite busy at times, it is unquestionably the most rewarding way to arrive at Machu Picchu; join one of our Peru walking trips and you'll pass through wonderful mountain landscapes of Amazonian cloud forest and snow-capped Andean peaks....

Although it is more than just a simple stroll, it should be within the capability of anyone who is in good health and fitness, and the rewards certainly justify the physical effort. Download our Inca Trail Guide and Walking & Trekking Fitness Guide here
