Escape this Christmas and head to Peru
The True Traveller has an 11 day tour of Peru, including the Inca Trail departing 19 December for £2269 per person including flight, or for just £740, land only.
The most famous trek in the Americas, the Inca Trail offers a unique and unrivalled combination of history and spectacular scenery, trekking to a maximum altitude of 4200m and an average of 3050m.
Winding its way from the powerful Urubamba River, across mountain passes and through cloud forests, the ancient Inca road passes several ruined fortresses before reaching the fabulous lost city of Machu Picchu. This tour uses excellent local guides and skilled porters on the trek, and includes a free day in Cuzco after the trek for more exploration or relaxation to unwind. There is also the opportunity to spend two days at Machu Picchu, rather than trekking straight into the ruins and leaving for Cuzco the same day. A particular highlight is the return on the second day for a dawn tour of the ruins, before the crowds of day trippers and trekkers arrive
The tour price includes, all breakfasts, 5 lunches and 4 dinners included, 4 nights hotels, 4 nights camping, 4 days point-to-point walking with full porterage. Travel by internal flight, minibus and bus.
