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.

“A great introduction into the life and environment of the Peruvian people and their history. Machu Picchu was also amazing, and having Aldo get us to the best spot for the sun to rise over the mountain and light up the alter in the sun temple was something I will remember forever.”

“We arrived home just a couple of hours ago and I wanted to make sure that I reach out to you and let you know about our wonderful experience. We gave a rave review on Trip Advisor, but I wanted to make sure I wrote you personally to let you know that we really thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Luis was brilliant! He was so kind and funny and helped us understand so much more than we ever knew. He was charismatic and sociable with us, really the perfect tour guide! Ronald was a great driver as well. I mean, we rode a lot around Peru as passengers and Ronald was by far the best. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that Luis is the best, Roni is awesome and the tour was absolutely amazing. We had THE BEST TIME, and thank you very much!!!”

“I have never done a trip with a tour group before and I was pleasantly surprised. To be honest, I had imagined long white buses full of people taking terrible pictures out of windows. I loved that we were a small group, could decide where to go, where to stop, where to eat, etc. This is definitely the way to do it because the trip was more meaningful and personalised and we got to know each other and were able to spend more time with Aldo asking questions and telling stories.”
