Choose the less-crowded alternative to the Inca Trail while not missing out on the chance to explore Machu Picchu. Enjoy magnificent sceneries along the Lares Trek. See remote settlements and encounter striking landscapes. Travel to the Lares Valley, a relatively untouched area offering quieter surroundings and a wealth of natural splendor that delight a trekker’s soul.

Travel from the Lares Valley to the Sacred Valley rather than other way round (as most people do) and camp overnight near the hot springs of the Lares Valley where you can take a dip if you want to. Hike down a river canyon to the village of Totora. Drive to Ollantaytambo and enjoy a train ride to Aguas Calientes, the town considered to be the base of those visiting Machu Picchu.

Enjoy a sunrise view from Machu Picchu and drive back to Cusco after exploring the most famous Inca citadel. This is where your trip ends. For more about this 4-day trip, please go through the itinerary below.

Terry's review for another Aspiring Adventures tour
“It felt like my husband and I were seeing the magical Sacred Valley and no one else was around but the people of the Andes. I love the way Aldo and Paul took the back roads, so we got to see how people really live and avoid the other tours, and stopped when we saw a festival going on, so that we could go visit. That was really special to have them do that!”

Michelle's review for another Aspiring Adventures tour
“Aldo's passion and love of his country, his culture, his knowledge of history and his role as a guide was of the highest standard. His innate sense of timing enabled us to experience the absolute most we could at every location and activity we participated in. Rob and I were not keen to climb Wayna Picchu and we told Aldo this. However due to the quiet and confident manner in which he interacted with our group, we had the confidence and trust to know that if Aldo thought we could climb Wayna Picchu everything would be fine and so it was. That experience and satisfaction was one none of us will ever forget. Aldo is a brother to us.”
