Trek the Trail to Machu Picchu

Have you ever dreamed of hiking the epic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu? Make that dream come true with us; join our first ever overseas trek and help brighten the lives of seriously ill children while doing so!

The Journey:

This amazing journey starts at an altitude of 3,300m where you will spend your first day acclimatising by taking a tour around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco.

Then we’re 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 thousands of Inca Trails within Peru but there’s only one Inca Trail that leads through the majestic Sun Gate and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu.

The trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test you, but witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate mirrored with breath-taking views across the Andes will make it all worthwile.
