Hola! Here at Travel Factor, we have a mission to bring you to the most awesome places on the planet. We are proud to announce our first foray to South America, Backpacking Peru!
We'll start off in Peru's capital, Lima, the City of Kings, where you'll get to visit the modern and colonial parts of the city. See Incan heritage sites, Spanish colonial churches and dive into the city's historic past and rich culture.
We'll then fly into Cusco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a heritage city that's 3,399 meters above sea level! Here you'll visit old Incan temples, palaces and fortresses. Going further, we'll venture into the Sacred Valley to explore Moray's circular andenes, ancient salt mines and Ollantaytambo, the military, religious and agricultural center of the Incan Empire.
Finally, an expedition train brings us to Aguas Calientes Station where we will be transported to the world-famous Machu Picchu citadel, one of the most renowned examples of the Inca's architecture, surrounded by an amazing landscape of lush forest. Truly an unforgettable moment and a fitting end to a week-long Peruvian adventure! Vamos!
