Relax in Cusco

Aerial view of the city of Cusco, Peru

Here, you’ll take a step back in time with ancient ruins and age-old cities that were hidden for centuries until they were rediscovered by modern man.

Tucked away amid the undeniable natural beauty of this place, Cusco provides 5-star service and fine dining experiences to help you relax at the end of a long day of hiking and exploring.

Cusco is just an hour’s plane ride from Lima and it is the perfect blend of modern comforts and old-world charm. Known as the gateway to Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley, the first thing you’ll notice about this beautiful city are the views.

Magnificent architecture inspired by both the Incas and the Spanish sits peacefully with the Andes mountains as an awe-inspiring backdrop. Clouds kiss the tallest peaks and villages dot the mountainside. You can take in these spectacular views while lunching on a terrace or patio.


Marvel at the Peruvian Andes

The longest mountain-range in the world, the Andes are on every hiker and climbers bucket list. For those obsessed with breathtaking views, the Peruvian Andes can’t be beat.

Peru has the largest concentration of snow-capped mountains and glaciers in the entire Andes mountain range. From the zig-zagging valleys below, to the endless plateaus of Machu Picchu, you’ll have a front-row seat to some of the most spectacular mountain views on the planet.


Wind your way through the Sacred Valley

Panoramic view of the Sacred Valley in Peru

The Sacred Valley, which sits between Cusco and Machu Picchu, was the heart of the powerful Incan empire.

Here, roaming alpacas and munching llamas are the norm, along with native peoples who still farm the way their ancient Incan ancestors did.

Your days in Sacred Valley, and its neighboring valleys, will be filled with tricky passes, quaint villages, winding rivers, volcanic rocks, snowcapped mountains, Incan fortresses, and famous red orchids. You’ll hardly know which way to look but every site is breathtaking.

Walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Rated as one of the top 5 treks in the world, this famous Inca Trail spans thousands of kilometers and its final destination is none other than Machu Picchu itself.

Passing through the Sacred Valley, your days on the trail will reveal well-preserved Incan tunnels hidden in the cloud forests. The trail actually consists of three overlapping trails that were originally used in the 15th century as a pilgrimage route to Machu Picchu for the ancient Incas and emperors. You can literally take a step back in time and walk the path of an ancient society.

The crown jewel of the Andes, Machu Picchu is almost impossible to describe.

A miracle of ancient engineering, this is a 500-year old ‘lost city’ that sits among the clouds on top of the world. No pictures can prepare you for what you’ll see and feel here. A birds-eye view of Machu Picchu is available at the summit along with blue skies and rolling green mountaintops as far as the eye can see.

With a limited number of visitors allowed each day, it’s truly a privilege to experience this miraculous place.


Some Good With your View

Every K2 adventure comes with your chance to do some good.

Community service projects for local children before you visit the splendor of Machu Picchu will make the view all that much sweeter. Come. Do some good, visit the clouds, and go back in time in Peru!
