DETAILS

Trek into the Andes on this less-crowded alternative to reach Machu Picchu. Visit local markets, temples, and a coffee farm while marveling at the beautiful scenery. Machu Picchu is perhaps the most famous archaeological site in all of South America, with good reason. The smooth stone walls of this historic Inca citadel remain almost untouched; undestroyed by the Spanish Conquest.

The Spanish never found Machu Picchu, though it stands atop a hill a mere 80km away from the Inca capital Cusco. The fact that it was hidden away for so many years gives this ancient Andean city an unparalleled aura of mystery and grandeur. Trek through the Andes to take the road less traveled to this UNESCO World Heritage site, visiting local homes and coffee plantations along the way.

Expert guides will ensure a smooth journey from the moment you land in Cusco, a modern tourist spot steeped in Andean culture. This 8-day trip has been carefully curated by OneSeed Expeditions a company that chooses to invest in people by loaning 10% of their profits to local entrepreneurs in need of capital. Don't just visit local communities, empower them.
