Download Itinerary

Travel back in time almost 600 years to the age of the Inca Empire on this seven-day multi-sport adventure. Raft the Class III Urubamba River, zip-line through the jungle canopy on six different cables and explore the fascinating archaeological remnants of the Inca civilization with our knowledgeable Peruvian guides. In addition to other notable ruins along the way, our trip includes a visit to Machu Picchu—the lost citadel of the Inca—and two extraordinary nights at the renowned Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, where spacious two-room cottages provide families with plenty of space to relax and unwind.

Cultural Highlight

Visit Ollantaytambo market with your guide to shop for food before transferring to the Village of Cachiccata, where you will prepare a well-balanced breakfast for the local school children. This meal will supply energy and focus during a full day of school for the appreciative students. Take some time and relish in the smiles, laughter and youthful energy!
