Machu Picchu is a new Seven Wonder of The World and is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru. Sitting above the Urubamba River valley, it was built in the 15th century but later abandoned. It is a sacred place that was used by the Incas to worship their gods.
It is common for people to hike the famous Inca trail to get to Machu Picchu. This typically takes four days; half a million visit every year making it Peru’s most popular attraction.
A 4 day adventure for the whole family will help build memories that will last a lifetime. Cross of one of the 7 wonders by beginning your travels through the Sacred Valley on route to the Andrean Chinchero community. You can tour through the Malaga Pass and then hike through the Inca Jungle. Then take a dizzying ride through the tree tops on a canopy zipline adventure before relaxing in a hot tub and looking for exotic and rare bird species. Finally head to Machu Picchu to cap it all off!

Altitude sickness is nothing to do with physical fitness but rather the amount of oxygen in the air. Sitting at 7,972 ft about sea level, Machu Picchu takes some adjustment. The best way to avoid any problems is to give yourself plenty of time – arrive the day before you want to do anything.
Affectionately titled ‘The Mountain of Death’, this incredibly steep climb sits behind the Machu Picchu ruins. It is highly popular due to the fantastic view it offers of the Machu Picchu site. Tickets go fast so be organised and book them before.
