Embrace the Peruvian culture

Your journey of South American adventure will begin when you land in the bustling metropolis of Lima, the capital of Peru, where you’ll have a day to absorb all that this vibrant city has to offer. From here you will fly to the intriguing city of Cusco; which was the centre of the Incan Empire. Explore the Sacred Valley, with archaeological delights, the Amaru Village with all of it’s colourful history and culture.

With 2 nights in Cusco, you will be here at a very special time during the spectacular Inti Raymi, the largest festival in South America, held during the winter solstice in the Southern hemisphere. A wonderful celebration of the sun with colourful parades and vibrant traditional dress. Then onwards to the Inca Trail…

Embrace the challenge of a lifetime and discover captivating Peruvian culture on this bucket list 11 day adventure!

Is this the Challenge for me?

The Inca Trail Peru, whilst not a Power Walk, is a trekking challenge and will require endurance at altitude. The trail is of challenging terrain, with a number of very early mornings and long days in order to cover the distance required. This is a demanding event and is a Footprint Level 4 which will need a certain level of training, plus you’ll be camping for the 3 nights on the Inca Trail, which comes with its own fun experiences. On this challenge you need to embrace every aspect: the trekking, the culture, the history, the long days, the campsite escapades, the panoramic views and the team bonding. 

The Inca Trail was incredible! Challenging but stunning & an amazing group of people to walk with... very special memories.- Sara
