The Lares Adventure to Machu Picchu is one of the very best ways to immerse yourself in the rich culture and wonderful landscapes of the Sacred Valley. During the five or seven night trip, in the company of expert local guides, you will explore ancient Inca ruins, hike spectacular mountain trails and visit small hamlets and thriving Andean market towns. Along the way you will encounter snow-capped peaks, turquoise lakes, remote waterfalls and herds of wandering llama and alpaca, as well as gaining an intimate glimpse into local life here. At the end of it all you will arrive in style at the Sun Gate to get your first sighting of the lost Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.

Each night you will relax and unwind in a luxury mountain lodge, enjoying a fabulous meal and glass of wine as the sun goes down. Outdoor jacuzzis and welcoming goose-down bedding will soothe your legs and leave you refreshed for the next days' activities.

Every day brings a choice of new adventures and activities, offering a balance between hiking and cycling or group visits. The programme can therefore be perfectly tailored as you go to your interests and physical capabilities. The itineraries lead you to the most popular areas of the Scared Valley, including the Inca ruins at the towns of Ollantaytambo and Pisac and the Maras Salt Ponds. However, blended in with these are lesser-undertaken hikes, hidden ruins and privileged cultural experiences and encounters with local people.
