Machu Picchu - the archeological marvel - is only one of the many highlights of Incan culture and history that we explore on this trip. Staying in remote mountain lodges, we trek along an ancient Incan Trail (a more remote off shoot of THE Inca Trail), over high passes and below towering peaks, away from crowded trails, and into the authentic heart of the Incan empire. At the end we visit Machu Picchu, the crowning glory of the Incas.
The beloved Tambopata Research Center is the only lodge that lies within the Tambopata National Reserve, making it one of the most remote lodges in South America! The lodge's pristine location means it's surrounded by the best wildlife the Amazon jungle has to offer. There are no humans nearby, so you can see more monkeys, Macaws and other large and endangered species than anywhere else. One in three guests here even spots a Jaguar!
