PRESENTED BY Kim Macquarrie,

From a soaring mountain pass and down to a lush cloud forest, the Salkantay Trek is celebrated for its diverse scenery. Spend a few days in Cusco before your trek to help acclimate to the high altitude and enjoy a guided tour to historic sites around the city. Then embark on a premier journey along the Salkantay Trek that takes you on a historic section of the Inca trail. Each day’s trek ends with a hot shower in an exclusive lodge, a gourmet meal, and the opportunity to relax in an outdoor jacuzzi. Wrap up your journey with a thrilling visit to Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas”.
