The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Discover the Lost City
The Sacred Valley of the Incas sounds, looks and feels like Narnia, Neverland, and the garden of Eden all wrapped into one. Once the largest empire in pre-Columbian America, the Incas vanished with barely a trace. Once you’ve found the Lost City of the Machu Picchu, you might lose yourself a little, too. See the ruins after the tourists have left (is there any other way?). Stand captivated by the beauty and mystique of this unbelievable landscape as you traverse the Sacred Valley and hike the cloud forests of the Inca Trail. Unwinding with a pisco sour at dusk after a picnic on top of the world? Transcendent.

Day by Day
Walk the ruins of Pisac, high above the modern-day town. Complete the day with a special afternoon ceremony by a local paco, guardian of Inca religious traditions.
Walk among the Incan agricultural terraces and salt mines of the Sacred Valley. Dinner tonight is at a local friend's home—get ready for a fun-filled evening!
Wander the cobblestone streets of Ollantaytambo or venture up to the ruins at Pumamarca. Meet for a Peruvian-style lunch, then spend the evening exploring in town.
Journey into the Andes aboard the Belmond Inca Train, one of the most enchanting rides in the world. Hike the famous Inca Trail to take in views of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate.
Awake atop Machu Picchu at the luxurious Sanctuary Lodge, then embark on a full exploration of the historic site. Tonight, enjoy dinner aboard a first class dining car as we journey back to Cusco by train.
Hike the Inca highway into Cusco. Then, get a behind the scenes look at the staggering murals inside 16th century church San Pedro Apóstol de Andahuaylillas, courtesy of our friends at the World Monuments Fund.
Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel and goodbyes before your final departure.
Sol y Luna Lodge, Urubamba
Sol y Luna blends Old World charm with the tranquility of the Sacred Valley. Our hosts, Marie-Helene and Franz, have made Peru their home since the early 1990s. The stylish bungalow-style cottages on this intimate property are all thoughtfully decorated with local ceramics and indigenous woods. The hotel is surrounded by lovely gardens and features a fully equipped spa. View hotel website »
Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, Machu Picchu
The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge embodies the three truths held sacred by the ancient Incas: “Location, location, location.” But besides being the only hotel in the lost city’s citadel, just a three-minute walk from the main ruins, this exclusive retreat also scores high on what B&R holds sacred: it’s been refurbished by the Orient Express group; its services are unequalled in the valley and it has breathtaking llama’s-eye views.

La Casona Inkaterra, Cusco
This historic colonial manor house (perhaps the first Spanish construction in Cuzco) is centrally located on an ancient Incan settlement near Cuzco’s present-day main square. Eleven spacious suites surround a sumptuous courtyard, where the patina of time is tastefully preserved. Contemporary amenities create the ambience of comfort and exclusivity enjoyed by guests of the hotel. View hotel website »
We would like to congratulate B&R for the amazing experience we had in Peru. The unique opportunity we had to interact with local people and go really deep into their culture is something we will never forget.— Leandro Taga
While traveling abroad with loved ones usually brings trepidation and more tiffs than nuevo soles I have in my wallet, B&R has made everything happen so effortlessly that I’m beginning to wonder how I ever voyaged any other way.
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
Our daily walks range in distance from 4 to 10 km (2.5 to 6 mi.), on cobbled city streets, grassy terraced hillsides and along the winding footpaths of the Inca Trail. We travel throughout the Sacred Valley at altitudes between 1,500 and 3,200 m (5,000 to 11,000 ft.). Apart from one challenging walk up to Machu Picchu, it’s moderate going. You may find, however, that the effect of the altitude will make the walks require more effort than they would at lower elevations. Expect some uneven stairs on our hikes in the ruins as well as some sheer drop offs in places.
“I walk regularly and enjoy the feeling of achievement I get from a good hike.”
