How do you know when your vacation’s going to be interesting? Well, a good start is when they say it takes the first two days to become acclimated to the height of, oh, 13,000 feet above sea level. Then when you’re on to four days and three nights exploring the 28 mile Inca Trail running/hiking (or walking if you so feel inclined) to your final destination of Machu Picchu. The best part of all this is that you’re only tasked with carring your drinking water and a snack. The rest is handled by the provisioners. We might suggest wearing a pair of these Salomon XA Pro running shoes if you are. Broken in of course.
We won’t waste your time with details, check out their site for the full details.
What this means to you: Stop sitting around letting life pass you buy. Use your next vacation and do something guaranteed no one else in the room will ever trump. Ever.
Cost: $495 (all inclusive) + Airfare to Lima, Peru @ Run The Inca Trail
