Machu Picchu And Amazon Adventure Tour

Explore the highlights of Peru on this fascinating two-week trip. Along the way we discover Lake Titicaca, the birthplace of the Inca civilisation. From Cusco, the ancient Inca capital, we travel into the Sacred Valley to begin our four-day trek along the Inca Trail to the impressive mountain citadel of Machu Picchu. As a contrast to the mountains and cloudforests of the trail we also visit the Peruvian Amazon jungle. Staying as guests of the Infierno Amazon community we learn about both the people and the wildlife of the Tambopata region through the eyes of our local guides.

Why Book this trip
Our three night Inca Trail trek is designed so that we stay on quieter campsites away from the crowds. We also ensure that our porters are local people, so that the communities benefit from your visit, and we abide by the strict guidelines regulating both their working conditions and care of the Inca Trail. Our local partner also actively supports community projects in the villages of Mismanay and Anccoto.

In the Amazon we experience the jungle in the company of people that live there. The Amazon community of Infierno own and operate Nape Lodge. They also own the adjacent land, most of which is primary forest. The lodge staff are from the community and any money generated directly benefits the local population. Learn about the challenges of living in the jungle as well as discovering the fascinating local wildlife.
