Machu Picchu

Peru’s most sought-after drawcard is its connection to the ancient Incan people. Home to the famous ruins of Machu Picchu, the Incan capital of Cusco and the Incan farming region of the Sacred Valley, travellers can expect a wonderfully interpretive introduction to what was once the largest empire in pre-Columbian America. Tucked in-between Cusco and Machu Picchu is the flourishing Sacred Valley, guardian of a number of prominent ancient sites, and a destination that completes the Incan circuit. The region’s breathtaking vistas of frosted-peaked mountains and Inca farming terraces makes it the ideal destination to embark on a series of outdoor adventures such mountain biking, trekking, horse-riding, river rafting, and rock climbing.
