 |  Category: Events

Haven’t made any plans yet for Christmas? What about spending it high up in the Andean mountains during one of our unique treks in Peru!

The Inca’s of Peru didn’t believe the world is going to end on the 21st of December, and neither do we. However, this particular date could go into history as your first day of the Inca Trail. After four days of hardship and solidarity with new friends you will arrive at the sungate looking upon Machu Picchu; at the break of dawn on Christmas day.

After this incredible moment and accomplishment we will bring you back to Cusco in time for a traditional Peruvian Christmas dinner. You can be assured to look back upon a truly unique and mystical experience (and you don’t have to worry about your diet after 49 km’s of hiking in the Andes!).

Spend Christmas or New Year’s Day at Machu Picchu in Peru!

If you are looking for something even more challenging and exhilarating, consider joining us on some other treks following the footsteps of the Incas to Machu Picchu. We depart every  day between the 19th and 23rd of December on the very popular Salkantay Trek reaching heights of 4,600 meters above sea-level. We also still got spaces left on the Inca Jungle Trail which combines mountain biking, hiking and zip-lining through the cloud forests for those that want to spend Christmas in Peru as actively as possible.

On each and every one of these Christmas treks to Machu Picchu you and your fellow hikers will become one with nature at its very finest. Surrounded only by the spectacular snowcapped peaks and fascinating Inca ruins with the only company of the whispers of the wind, sounds of nature and the odd lama or vicuña.

Spend Christmas or New Year’s Day at Machu Picchu in Peru!

If you already have plans with Christmas but do wish to undertake something special around New Year’s Day in Cusco, then a trek or excursion by train to Machu Picchu is an option with Dos Manos travel agency in Cusco. You can also join us on a city tour in Cusco while we visit the cathedral and Coricancha with the convent of Santo Domingo. At this time of year the religious places of worship, with its baroque facades and decorations, transport you back into colonial times with heavily attended masses and processions. At night the central plaza de Armas in Cusco will light up when the tremendous firework show starts at the turn of the year.

So if this year you want to celebrate Christmas or New Year in style, why not join us at the camping table en route to one of the seven wonders of the world! Contact us here for more info and discounted departures.

Be advised: only limited amount of spaces left on the classic Inca Trail 21st of December. The cathedral is open on the 24th but closed on the 25th. The Coricancha Incan Temple is closed on both dates. Always consult before which dates are available on each trek to avoid disappointments.

    Hola Jeremy. Thanks for your compliment. We always try to prepare healthy and tasty meals with room for seconds as we know how important nutrition is on our treks at those altitudes. Knowing our chef, I am sure there will be some arroz con leche or paneton for desert over christmas..and who knows, maybe turkey too?
