SAS Travel Peru


This package offers the best of Peru including the inca trail to Machu Picchu. If you are booking at the last minute and there are no permits left for the standard Inca trail, then you have the opportunity for either the Lares trek to Machu Picchu or the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu which are both wonderful alternatives but actually many peoples first choice these days as they have become more well known and popular for their off the beaten track feel and the charm of seeing the real Peru through meeting the families of the local Andean Villages of Lares and the spectacular panoramas of the trek around Salkantay mountain to Machu Picchu.
The only thing this package does not include is jungle but it is offered in additional options so we can tailor make this to suit your time frame and place preferences!
