Peru’s Sacred Valley: A Walking Tour

Join UBC alumni for a seven-day fully supported lodge-to-lodge walk in Peru’s Sacred Valley plus time to explore Lima, Cusco, and iconic Machu Picchu.

Discover the rich history, living culture, and magnificent landscapes of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Majestic archaeological sites lead to remote and uncrowded trails taking you through mountains and valleys, abounding in natural beauty and dotted with Andean communities, where the locals are master weavers and their traditions are still firmly rooted in ancient Incan culture.

Every day you can choose from easy to moderate (and some challenging) walks and cultural encounters. At each day’s sunset, settle into deluxe mountain lodges run in partnership with local communities.

The Sacred Valley is like an Andean Eden. The deep blue skies act like a framework for the amazingly beautiful landscapes below. Snowy peaks look down, here and there, onto the lower slopes fashioned into agricultural terraces by long gone civilizations, but still used by the contemporary Quechua speaking farmers. Small, historical towns and villages with traditional colonial architecture and Inca ruins dot the banks of the Urubamba River. This valley positively invites you to forget about the stresses of modern life. The pace is slower here, enabling you the opportunity to contemplate, to introspect, to literally breathe in and out.
