The magnificent Choquequirao trek to Machu Picchu passes through two of Peru's finest Inca sites.
Remote Choquequirao ruins attract few visitors, so you can explore freely.
Unique views to Machu Picchu.
Pass through varied eco-systems from high Andes to sub-tropical rainforest.
Fully supported trek, the ultimate back-door route to Machu Picchu.
Excellent guides will bring the Inca civilisation to life for you.
Choquequirao was fabulous, remote , a real sense of achievement having trekked in, the guide was really informative and there was a spiritual feel to it.

I was amazed at how smoothly everything went, having only had experience in developing countries of Africa and Asia backpacking which is usually quite fraught at airports and railways. We were collected and looked after with absolutely no fuss, refreshments and comforts sorted out all the way by courteous staff.
The trekking guides cooks and wranglers were all great. Food was varied tasty and much better than I'd expected. Tents and mats were fine. The Amazon lodge was really nice and the programme you put together kept us busy and entertained. The best bits were jumaring into the tree and kayaking, although it was all good.
