Seeing Machu Picchu in person is on every hiker's bucket list!  This is a special trip for women only. The group will be led by a team of all-female guide and porters from the Quechua community. Joining us on this journey means supporting women trail leaders of Peru and the local economy. Plus, this is an off the beaten path that will take you to Machu Picchu with lesser crowd and a more intimate experience with mother nature in the gorgeous Andes mountains. The trek allows you to camp in the wilderness, soak in the hot spring of Aguas Caliente, visit Machu Picchu over a period of two days, and do the climb up Huayna Picchu for an incredible bird's eye view of the ruins. You also spend time walking in the old part of Lima and visit the beautiful town of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. In the process, you will create lasting memories with fellow women hikers. This trip is operated by our local partner, Evolution Treks Peru.
