Boutique travel to Machu Picchu and alternative locations, including luxury and all-inclusive tour and trek packages, might not hit all the highlights that you’ve dreamed about.
If you encounter this challenge, consider booking a customized tour package. When you work with a tour operator who will work with you to customize the adventure of your dreams, you can rest assured that your trip will be everything you imagined it could be.
The popular Machu Picchu travel options include treks up the Inca Trail to the Citadel and traditional (non-hiking) tours. Most travelers use Cusco as a launching point, and many choose to include the Sacred Valley as a part of their adventure.
That said, you have a virtually endless supply of other locations to visit, including Salkantay, Lares, Huchuy Qosqo, Choquequirao, Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain.
Choquequirao, for example, is home to a truly magnificent archaeological site. You might prefer to add a stop there and take a private tour of the palaces, temple and ritual water fountains. Or perhaps you would prefer to trek from Lares to Machu Picchu, allowing you to meet indigenous peoples in the remote villages along the way.
Virtually all of southern Peru and the areas surrounding Machu Picchu offer an unbelievable combination of culture, scenery, history and ecological diversity. So much so, in fact, that you may struggle to decide what you want to include in your custom tour or trek itinerary.
You could elect to customize your experience to focus on the areas rich collection of historical archaeology or to experience as much of the local flora and fauna as possible. If you’re focused on the hiking prospects, you can choose alternative treks based on your abilities and your taste for adventure.
