WHY THIS TRIP
The owners of Amazonas Explorer designed the Family Adventure Peru with their three young kids, and this trip hits all their favorite things to do! Experience the highlights of Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu with your family in fun, active ways, including whitewater rafting, biking, stand up paddle boarding, and hiking to Inca ruins. Visit colorful Sacred Valley markets, and hike the 1-Day Royal Inca Trail into Machu Picchu!
Specifically designed for the needs of the modern adventurous family. With education, plenty of activities and enough time to relax, this trip will appeal to everyone from 10 to 80 years old. The former Inca capital and Spanish colonial city of Cusco is your base for this great multi-activity adventure; a wonderful place full of culture, history and good restaurants. From Cusco you explore rarely visited ruins on horseback, raft and canoe the scenic, fun and safe Rio Urubamba and descend by mountain bike into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. You trek the famous one-day Royal Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas. From your final free day in Cusco you can either return home, for those short on time, or join a fun extension, either to overnight on an island in Lake Titicaca or explore the Amazon rainforest from a delightful jungle lodge to make a perfect two-week break.
This trip is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate the most demanding teenager who is looking for non-stop action as well as the younger more relaxed crowd looking to try some fun and stimulating sports. At the same time, the trip builds in enough time for relaxing that even the parents feel they have had a holiday.
