Machu Picchu Hiking & Amazon Wildlife

Experience the best Inca sites on day hikes around Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and Machu Picchu without the need for camping. Overnight in comfortable, local boutique hotels at night.

You will experience Peru like no other tourists and you will even get to hike the last day of the Inca Trail to arrive to Machu Picchu on foot via the Gate of the Sun, just like the Incas did centuries ago. Then head to the Amazon to the Tambopata Research Center (TRC), one of the most remote rainforest lodges in South America.

The lodge is situated inside an uninhabited area of the Tambopata National Reserve and next to the Bahajua-Sonene National Park. The surrounding rainforest ecosystem remains pristine, and the lodge is adjacent to one of the largest parrot and macaw clay licks in the world, making for incredible bird and wildlife viewing.
