This is a 13 days / 12 nights special journey where unique, real adventure opportunities are going to be experienced. The off the beaten trail route has been discovered and traced by us together with Globetrooper Founders: Lauren & Todd on Discovery Expedition I in November 2010 in Cusco, Peru, in the lands where legends say the gods converted into mountains.

The trip includes adventure activities such as mountain biking, river rafting, canopy zipline, hiking and the major highlights on the Cusco area, in particular, the famous Machu Picchu.

This trip will be operated just twice before closing the destination forever to preserve intact forest wilderness and native culture.

This is not a tourist luxury trip, this is an adventure expedition.
