Description of Peru trekking holiday, Machu Picchu & Choquequirao

This Peru trekking holiday is a superb two week itinerary, tailor made to suit your interests and abilities, in the Andes Mountains. Walk amongst incredible snow capped peaks, stay at quiet campsites, wake up to views of rugged mountains and bathe in glacial rivers.

As well as some of the most extraordinary Andean hiking routes, you will also get a chance to visit two Inca sites. First, Choquequirao , one of the most remote Inca settlements in the Andes, and second, the iconic citadel at Machu Picchu.

You will camp at some of the most exquisite locations on this trekking holiday, such as at the Yanama Pass and near the ruins at Pinchinuyoc. You also hike to the ruins at Llactapata, believed to be an Inca rest stop on the way to Machu Picchu constructed by an Inca chieftain.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru trekking holiday, Machu Picchu & Choquequirao


It is incredibly important to us to sustain the environment on the trips that we do to these countries. For example at Machu Picchu in Peru, we work with Inkaterra who have been working for 40 years to protect the environment and local communities through various initiatives including the creation of reserves, education on sustainable fishing and biodiversity monitoring. Every guest at Inkaterra has a 100% Carbon Neutral hotel stay.

We encourage people to travel overland where possible (a fantastic experience in itself in South America for the views and sense of space you get)
We urge clients to focus their trip on a few places rather than trying to connect many destinations by flights.

Some of our suppliers have foundations or projects that benefit from the hotel/cruise boat or lodge that they operate and we prefer to use these where possible. We explain this to our clients and indeed it can be used as a big selling point throughout the trip planning process.


We actively support community based projects. For every Peru booking we will donate £10 to the Living Heart Foundation who have several excellent projects that reach out to the remote Andean regions where children often have poor nutrition and education. They have a café in the town of Ollantaytambo which is a stopping off point for Machu Picchu. We encourage our clients to go there for a coffee or to buy some of the locally produced textiles that this region is famous for.

When creating our tailormade trips we always try to feature hotels or lodges that have a social or environmental project attached to them. For example Hotel Sol y Luna in Peru has its own foundation which helps children in the local area by giving them a chance of an “education, good health, happiness and a brighter future”.

We also work with a small company who take clients off the beaten track in Lima called Pax on Board. Clients can visit a fishing village with a local guide and learn about how important this industry is to the local economy. They eat lunch in a local restaurant. This is always done on a private basis and so usually our clients are the only tourists there.
