Peru Multi Sport IVS CE
Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a true classic that should be on every adventurer’s “to-do” list. Exploring ancient paths and ruins in this spectacular setting will send shivers down your spine. This haunting fortress city nestled below stunning peaks is the greatest mystery of the Inca Empire. Beautiful Andean scenery, as well as cultural history, unfold as we hike up and down steep stone staircases past ancient Inca outposts. Your Peruvian porters will carry all of your gear and even set up your tent for you so you can enjoy this stunning trek. Your guide will explain the fascinating natural history along the trail, and the expert cooking staff will prepare and serve delicious meals.
The Amazon Jungle is a wildlife treasure, and is not to be missed by nature lovers. You’ll fly from Cuzco to Puerto Maldonado, where a dugout motor canoe will transport you downriver to the fantastic, Reserva Amazonica Lodge, where you’ll stay 2 nights. Naturalists will take you on walks and boat trips to explore some of the natural wonders of the area, including the Madre de Dios River, Monkey Island, and Lake Sandoval.
