On this active Peru adventure to the Andes and the Amazon we trek the Inca trail to the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu along the royal road built by the Incas 500 years ago. On the guided Peru trekking adventure, discover native Quechua Andean life and explore Inca stone monuments in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and on the ancient pilgrimage to Machu Picchu. We descend from the Andes to explore the Amazon rain forest based at comfortable jungle lodges in the Tambopata-Candamo, a region known for its high biodiversity, featuring giant river otters, monkeys, and over 500 species of birds. In close proximity to the world’s largest and most active macaw clay lick, we can observe scarlet and blue-and-gold macaws and learn about the research to protect Amazon parrots. This trip into the Peruvian Amazon is an active rainforest adventure offering miles of jungle trails for biking and hiking, aerial platforms with a bird’s-eye view above the tree tops and up-close wildlife viewing at parrot and mammal clay licks and well as kayak and canoe trips on rivers and oxbow lakes.
