Peru Family Adventure: Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca
Wildland Adventures

Peru Family Adventure: Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca

This active Peru adventure designed for active families and travelers of all ages, ventures high into the Andes to a remote and spectacular Inca trail to Machu Picchu. Our day hike on one of the most beautiful protected remnants of Inca trail leads to the recently discovered complex of Llactapata. Our expert Wildland guide takes us bushwhacking with machete in-hand to uncover hidden ruins, just like Hiram Bingham and other expedition leaders who searched for lost Inca cities. We gain a deep understanding of life in the Andes by visiting indigenous Quechua families in their home. Side-by-side, we work in their fields and participate in ancient ceremonies like a “pago-a-la-tierra” (payment to the Earth), reminding us of our common roots to the Apus (mountain spirits) and Pachamama (Mother Earth). Discover colorful market towns in the Sacred Valley of the Incas where we learn about sustainable agriculture though traditional methods of farming, Andean weaving and pottery making, visit an alpaca and llama farm, and sample traditional Andean cuisine. On this Peru family adventure we climb a rock wall in the Sacred Valley and fly back down on a long zip line, mountain bike downhill from a high pass to our camp in the jungle and hike among ancient Inca ruins and terraced farmlands. At Lake Titicaca, we spend one night in a local village on Taquile Island where we kayak, meet with weavers and share stories before finally returning to the capital city of Lima to explore the historic colonial districts by bicycle.
