What we'll do

Andes Trek to Machu Picchu
June 12th - 25th 2020

Sterling Results Fitness Club and Trekking Adventures offers this exclusive trip which will appeal to anyone looking for a challenge and adventure. We will prepare you mentally and physically for this breathtaking trek so when you arrive in Peru you will be ready to enjoy the trip of a lifetime!

The soaring peaks of the Andes and the cultural legacies of the Incas are two of Peru’s most compelling attractions. We discover both and much more on this amazing two‑week adventure. After savouring the historical and cultural highlights of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas while we take our time acclimatising, we commence our trek. This little‑visited trail takes us through breathtaking mountain scenery as we make our way to the foothills of the majestic snow‑capped peaks of Salcantay, Humantay and Huayanay. For a week we explore the stunning wilderness of the Peruvian Andes, following trails to 5,000 m in the Cordillera Vilcabamba and establishing camp beneath the spectacular 6,220m Mount Salcantay. This stunning trail is much quieter than the busier Inca Trail and is highly regarded by past trekkers. On the final day we join the classic Inca Trail for the unforgettable sight of Machu Picchu from the ‘Sun Gate’. Rather than rushing back to Cusco, we spend a night in nearby Aguas Calientes for a well‑deserved soak in the local hot springs We allow a day in Aguas Calientes to return to Machu Picchu to climb the challenging Huayna Picchu or enjoy the town and its cultural setting. We return to Cusco where will have a full day to soak up the atmosphere and witness Cusco’s biggest festival, Inti Raymi, or the Festival of the Sun. Our trip concludes in Cusco.

If you’re looking for an unforgettable encounter with Peruvian culture, history and wilderness—one that gets you off the beaten track but takes in the must‑see sights of Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu—then this is the adventure for you!
