$2,250 per person

We’re Brooke and Val, two outdoor enthusiasts ready to share our passion for nature with you! Based in the stunning Pacific Northwest, we’ve led countless group hikes across Oregon and Washington. Now, we’re thrilled to take our adventures to the next level and invite you to join us for an unforgettable journey to Peru! 
Get ready to hike and camp amidst some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes while forging lifelong friendships with a fantastic group of like-minded women. This trip promises to be the adventure of a lifetime, and we can’t wait to embark on this incredible experience with you! 
Let’s explore, laugh, and create memories together in the heart of Peru. Adventure awaits!

Join Brooke & Val for a private group adventure of the Salkantay trail and Machu Picchu! This trek is definitely the best way to cross Machu Picchu off your bucket list. Our fully supported 45-mile trek along the Salkantay Trail stops at hot springs, coffee farms, and more en route to the ancient citadel.
We’ll spend two days in Cusco before the hike to acclimate to the altitude  and one extra night at the end to relax and celebrate!

The trip begins and ends in Cusco (CUZ).  There are often more flight options if you book to Lima (LIM) from your home city, and then book a domestic jumper from Lima to Cusco. We prefer LATAM for the domestic flights.

Fun Facts About Machu Picchu

150+ Buildings

Machu Picchu is made up of more than 150 buildings ranging from baths and houses to temples and sanctuaries.


Located at 7,000 ft above sea level , Machu Picchu is one of the lowest elevation stops on this trip! We'll stay in Cusco at 11,152' and climb up to 15,000' over the Salkantay Pass.


Machu Picchu was only known locally until a Yale Professor re-discovered the site in 1911. His book, The Lost City of the Incas, was based on his findings.

Well Preserved

Machu Picchu is one of the most well-preserved Inca cities and an archeological gem, as it wasn't destroyed during the Spanish Conquest like other ancient cities.
