Peru is the birthplace of a culture. This diverse South American country is brimming with fascinating cultural sites and stunning landscapes, from the bustlings streets of Cusco – one of South America’s oldest continuously-inhabited settlements – to the famous ruins of Machu Picchu.

This country is where the Incan Empire was born, and the vestiges of this rich history are visible to this day. Explore the market streets of Cusco, gaze over the ancient Sacred Valley, and hike with alpacas through the spectacular Andes mountains all the way to the Sun Gate of Machu Picchu itself. Along the way, you will find countless natural and cultural curiosities, be it bubbling hot springs or prehistoric wall carvings.

There are so many paths to reach the wonders of Peru. Those looking for an iconic experience will take the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, passing by the classic sites of Dead Woman’s Pass and Llulluchapampa.

Trekkers in search of a mixture of culture and nature may choose the Lares trek, a less well-trodden alternative which allows you to encounter the Quechua communities of the Lares Valley and Cordillera Blanca. Or, for the intrepid hiker, the Salkantay trek, an incredibly scenic, yet more challenging route that gives maximum interaction with Peruvian wildlife.

All of these fantastic treks end up at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu, a New Wonder of the World and a true bucket list tick! You will also have the opportunity to add on a trek to Rainbow Mountain, a phenomenally colourful mountain near Cusco.

What our Customers Say

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

“I just got back from Peru after doing the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu (and Rainbow Mountain) and have had the greatest experience. From the chaos of landing and being woken up by an earthquake in Lima to meeting awesome kids in schools and on the trek, there was a grin stuck to my face at every turn. A camera simply does not do justice to the sights you will see during the excellently varied itinerary.

If you happen to be on the fence about booking a trip with The Bucket List Company, get off now and do it. You will not regret it, trust me. Many thanks to Keith and crew and the group I was lucky enough to be in.

Warning: the depression upon return is real!”

“Thanks to The Bucket List Company, we’ve been paying a just £160 each a month for our upcoming adventure trip to Peru.

We don’t even notice the money disappearing from our accounts, and for the first time ever, we have actually looked forward to getting an invoice because it means our dream trip of trekking the Inca Trail is one less month away.”

“I’ve just come back from doing the Lares trek in Peru. This was a trip that just kept giving and my mind is still catching up from everything I experienced.

This trip had everything and feel privileged with the experience that bucket list company arranged.I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of booking a trip, they are well organised and the experiences are once in a lifetime, pictures just dont do it justification, seeing it with your own eyes is a thousand times better. 

Massive thanks to Keith and his staff for sorting it all out!”

“I’ve just arrived back after a trip with The Bucket List Company to Peru to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Everything went very smoothly and we were well looked after. The hotel accomodation and travel were both good.

The trek itself was really well organised, and the quality of the food provided by Chef Freddie was first class. The extra tours on the trip were well worth it. We always felt part of the group and the experience was worth every penny. Thanks Keith!”

“Having recently returned from visiting Machu Picchu with The Bucket List Company, I cannot recommend them highly enough! What a life-changing experience! The trip was exceptionally organised and Keith is the best expedition leader out there.

Even when I was struggling with the altitude, my health was closely monitored by the group and I was really well looked after. This will definitely not be my last Bucket List trip. Thank you so much Keith!”

“Rocking up to the airport ready to meet the other “bucket listers” who signed up to the same adventure; I felt nervous of what was ahead and who would I be spending the next 10 days with.

My nerves were put at rest instantly. I now have 10 new awesome friends!

We were welcomed by Keith at the airport and from then on in, everything was wonderfully organised. So much so that Keith even helped us find a TV to watch the Arsenal game during the trek when were in the middle of Lares. Totally going above and beyond!

The knowledge and passion to travel really shone through and made the entire experience a true dream. The Bucket List Company are smaller than other companies in this market; however don’t let that put you off, this is a strength! 

They are a super knowledgeable company, led by people who have a real passion for what they do. It was all about my bucket list of activities and ticking them off – this was their main objective. They were also happy to tweak plans to fit others needs; this level of flexibility (including the payment plans/options) is not so welcoming in larger companies. 

I would encourage everyone to jump onto the adventures The Bucket List Company offer – go on do it now! 

I am already signing up to my next adventure with the Bucket List Company!”
