New regulations now limit the number of people allowed access to this historic site and you will be part of an exclusive team to explore the new seventh wonder of the world!
At an altitude of 3,300m, you will spend your first day acclimatising by taking a trek around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco, Peru.
The next day, you set off as a team to conquer the one and only Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – the world’s most important archaeological find and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
There are lots of Inca Trails, but only this trail will lead you through the majestic Sun Gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu. You will receive exceptional support – from porters and chefs through the medics and guides, so you’ll be in great hands to assist in reaching our goal!
This classic Inca Trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test you, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate mirrored with breathtaking views across the Andes, your efforts are more than worthwhile.
