Trip Itinerary

DAY
1

Cycling from Abra Malaga (14,153 ft) to Santa Maria Town (3,936 ft), Stay at a local Family’s Home.

A day of full adrenaline

Today’s adventure prepares us with a great breakfast, then to be transferred up to the top of the Abra Malaga (14,157 feet), the highest point in all adventure. In the support private vehicle provides classic Andean scenery as you wind your way up beside the white-peaked massif of the 19,030 feet mountain Veronica. From the pass, you have spectacular views and there is a 43,4 miles descent down to Santa Maria town through the tarmac road, this is a ride that will not soon be forgotten. As you start heading downhill the change in scenery is drastic, descending rapidly through stunted forest, cloud forest and into the Amazon basin, passing tea, banana, coffee plantations along the way, and the incredible noise of the Amazon rainforest.

Our support vehicle is on hand or nearby for virtually the whole trip, and can be used to carry any non-riders or weary clients and extra gear. After getting the small town of Santa Maria, we’ll say goodbye to our cycling adventure. Next, we’ll arrive to our first camp site in the heart of the Amazon basin. We then settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle to get the Urubamba river for a striking white-river rafting. After being fully kitted up with gloves, life vest, helmets, etc, and following a full instruction in the art of white-river rafting, you start exploring the river from a raft going through rapids 2 until 4, for about three hours. After having a great adrenaline time, we’ll drive back to our local family’s house. All meals included.

DAY

Trekking to Cocalmayo Hot Springs Through the Inca Trail, Stay at a lodge in Santa Teresa town.

Hiking the Unknown Inca Trail Section

A nutritious camp breakfast prepares us for today’s challenging trek along the narrow gorge and over the recently discovered Inca Trail. We hike along the riverbanks and start climbing through dense forest encountering abundant birdlife and flowering plants before reaching the section of Inca trail. The final approach to the high pass (5,250 feet) of this day, is steep ramp leading to Inca Trail. At the top, the views of the surrounding mountains, of the deep canyon right below your feet and verdant forest canopy are spectacular.

On our way we’ll see more coffee plantations, fruit trees, Coca plantations, and other tropical crops. On the half way we’ll stop for lunch to enjoy a freshly prepared meal. The trail then descends steeply and passes through river bank, and artisanal cable car to cross the mighty Urubamba river until getting our next stop place for camping–Cocalmayo hot springs, where we’ll soak into the amazing thermal pools, to spend the rest of the day, that night we’ll stay at lodge. All meals included.

DAY

Zip Lining and Trekking to Aguas Calientes Town.

First Sights of Machu Picchu

Early today we drive to have another great adventure morning at the highest Zipline in South America. If you’ve never “zipped” before, this is an adrenaline buzzing way to explore this part of the region, with expert guides and professional safety equipment. Following a full briefing, you kit up with helmets and harnesses before a short but steep climb to the start of the zipline experience. This ride is Peru’s first, and South America’s highest. There are 2,500 m / 1,553 miles of cables in six sections down which you whizz at speeds of up to 60kmh / 37,28mlh. The longest ride or section is 400 m / 0,249 miles long, and the highest is 150 m / 492,2 ft high. It’s a brilliant morning of fun. After having a great time in the cables, we’ll enjoy our last lunch made by our chef at the same place of Zipline, We then drive to the village of Hidroelectrica to start our hiking through the lush forest of the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu to reach our next destination, the town of Aguas Calientes. Arriving in this Wild West style town we check into our hotel (Gringo Bill’s Hotel) and have a well-earned shower, before heading out for dinner or maybe a cold beer to celebrate your arrival. All meals included, except dinner (there is a lot of restaurants where you can go, previous your Tour Leader recommendation).

Embrace the "Lost City of the Incas"

We have the rest of the morning and early afternoon to attempt the optional hike up Huayna Picchu mountain and/or explore the Inca city on our own.

What Makes Us Different!… Here’s, Why You Should Book With Us!

What Makes Us Different!… Here’s, Why You Should Book With Us!

Making a choice of your right travel company/ tour operator is the most important decision you will make as you make your plans for a long-anticipated dreamed adventure. At first glance, some companies may seem cheaper. However, when you research a little deeper, you will see why traveling with Peru Summit Adventures assures that you will have the most memorable travel experience possible. In fact, we guarantee it, our TripAdvisor reviews say that.

Making genuine and sustainable itineraries often translate to real costs, with a host of responsible travel practices that underpin our prices, here are the reasons why you should go with us!

1. We Focus on Details

Little insignificant details make all the difference to get a successful trip and an unforgettable experience, that’s the point where our tailor-made trip specialists and destination experts work intensely. No stone is left unturned in our quest to deliver exceptional private tours, trekking tours, and expeditions in Peru. With us, it’s all about you and your traveling mates too, for sure! We take your wants, needs, time constraints, budgets, and personal travel style into account to deliver experiences that are far from standard.

2. Our Safety Record is Flawless

Safety is at the core of everything we do at Peru Summit Adventures. There is nothing that we take more seriously. Put away your concerns and start enjoying the trip of your life knowing that you are on safe and sound hands. Peru Summit Adventures is a registered trademark and a licensed company by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism (MINCETUR).

3. Knowledge and Expertise

What an awesome to travel with someone who is from the same destination, a professional expert, it’s how you get the first-hand information. Our Peru Summit Adventures staff are friendly, funny, with deep knowledge on the route and destination, and great storytellers. We love what we do and it’s obvious. A simple concept, yes, but it makes all the difference. The team at Peru Summit Adventures all live and breathe the trip, experience, adventure, (you’ll see this when you arrive!). We love what we do, and it’s obvious. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel the buzz and excitement that Peru Summit Adventures offers.

4. We are Local Entrepreneurs, A Family Enterprise (we are not a gringo company)

Probably you will see that most of the tour operators mention it on their websites that are local tour companies, however, if you research a little deeper you will find out that’s not true, they might be although half of the operation is done from here and another half abroad, they even have NorthAmerican phone number or European phone numbers, which is a clue to find out, we are not against the foreigner companies or half foreign companies, what we are against is that they lie.

In Cusco exist just few truly local tour operators. If you did not know, foreign companies come to Peru to get rich without paying a General Sales Tax or Tax Contribution to our country. If you did not know that, according to the United Nations, for every US $100 spent on a tour in a developing country or foreign travel companies, only $5 stays in the local economy. Normally, almost all of the money flows back to large companies operating outside the destination countries. As we are a local family enterprise, we guarantee that your travel expenditures will support the local economy, and improve the lives of Peruvians through contributing to general sales tax.

5. Responsible Travel

Be a responsible traveller! Let’s make this world a better place for everyone and for everyone that lives in it! The natural environments that we travel to are fragile and abundant with beautiful culture and traditions that are often reliant on tourism. We have a responsibility as travelers to minimize the impact of our presence, protect what is delicate, and leave a positive influence everywhere we can.

As a locally owned and based Peruvian tour company, we integrate these practices into our in-country operations we are aiming for a style of travel that makes the world a better place for everyone, and for everyone that lives in it. Since our very first days as a tour operator, responsible business has been at the heart of what we do. Peru Summit Adventures is committed not just to treading lightly, but to making a real difference by helping and investing in local communities, education initiatives, environmental conservation projects. These values are not more than just words, they are ingrained in the culture and philosophy of our crew, daily operations of Peru Summit Adventures trips, and at our office too.
