Trip Information

Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. Built in the 15th century and later abandoned, it’s renowned for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of mortar, intriguing buildings that play on astronomical alignments and panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery.

We will take the ancient Inca trail, which follows the original trail that the Inca’s would have taken through the sacred valley. Along the way, you will get to experience phenomenal natural viewpoints, stunning scenery and various impressive archaeological sites.

This Ultra Adventures trip will take 9 days from start to finish. You will hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, making memories and friends that will last a lifetime.
