Description of Peru multi activity holiday, bike, climb and hike

On this 10 day Peru multi activity holiday, bike, climb and hike through the fertile, ancient landscapes of the Inca people. Active exploration takes you off the tourist trail to the lesser seen landscapes of the Sacred Valley. In Urubamba, climb the via ferrata route to explore the cliff faces and slopes of the Sacred Valley, using a series of ladders and chains, and gaining a whole new perspective on this magical place. Then end the day by flying through seven zip lines ranging from 150m to 700m long. Mountain bike through farmland and hills where usually only llamas and local farmers go. Finally, make your way up to Machu Picchu. Choose to hike the classic Inca Trail, with a team of porters to support you, or the equally beautiful Quarry Trail, with horses to carry your kit. Camp under the Andean stars before enjoying a full day at the site, with a guided tour and free time to ramble as you choose.

Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is a classic style of small group adventure. You'll find your trip combines a good mix of included activities and free time, with some meals included as per your itinerary. We don't want you to feel chaperoned, it's your holiday not ours. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with organising anything you might wish to do in your free time, but how you spend it is up to you. Anything listed as included in your itinerary will be included in trip price; whereas anything listed as optional will be at an additional cost should you wish to take part.

These trips are great value, including things that you would struggle to organise independently, such as a night at a homestay in a remote village, or local guides around a remote place of interest. Transport will be a combination of private vehicle and public transport, whichever is the most appropriate for the route we are travelling; this might include train, plane, camel, tuk tuk, bicycle, boat…

On a majority of these trips you'll stay in 2-3 star accommodation, locally owned and reflective of the region you are travelling through. All solo travellers will be automatically roomed on a twin share basis with another group member of the same sex, unless you opt to pay for your own room at time of booking. There are no compulsory single supplements for solo travellers willing to share. Single rooms aren't available on camping trips, and you will be expected to help out with camp tasks such as setting up and breaking down your camp.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

As a global tour operator, we are committed to operating every one of our trips in a way that respects and benefits local people, their culture and economy, while minimising our impact on the natural environment.

On this tour, on day 1 everyone will receive a flyer created by our Responsible Business team. The flyer educates on the responsible way of travelling in South America, such as using reusable bottles rather than buying single use plastic bottles, recycle where possible, say no to plastic water bottles and plastic bags and carry your own instead as well as avoid purchasing turtleshell products as the creatures are hunted for their shells to make souvenirs.
During this trip we only use locally owned hotels that have integrated sustainability into their business. For example, all hotels on our tour encourage guests to have shorter showers and reuse the towels.

We promote small group travelling, therefore maximum group size is 16. However, our average group size on this trip is 8-10 people. This has much less impact when travelling through rural areas, reducing our environmental and social affects. Finally, to emphasis our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travellers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.

The Impacts of this Trip

Even though we do not visit any local projects on this tour, we do encourage people to support them. The tour leader will always talk through our Responsible Travel guidelines and will encourage clients to look at the projects running at the moment. Currently we have three projects running in Peru, including a project in Lima that supports children coming from poverty, a project in The Sacred Valley that helps on improving the quality of life for the Andean people and a project in Puno that helps on improving the living conditions of children and adults affected by poverty and malnutrition.
We do pay a lot of attention to travelling the way that does not disrupt local culture. We encourage travellers to avoid giving gifts as it can result in creating dependency, also do not visit orphanages and schools as it may expose vulnerable kids to potential abuse and always say no to begging and give back through a local organization instead.

We support local businesses and use local suppliers for all our included activities and optional services. This means your money stays in the area to benefit the local community and any of the activities done on this trip are helping the local economic development. We only use local tour leaders and an extensive training is always provided for everyone leading the group. Moreover, this trip includes hiking the Inca Trail and visiting the archaeological site of Machu Picchu. Inca Trail trek permit and Machu Picchu entrance fee paid will help with restoration, conservation and local economic development.
Furthermore, in order to allow our clients to make an informed decision on where a greater proportion of their money should be spent, we avoid including pre-paid full board meals where possible and we do encourage the group to always eat at local restaurants.
