We have a new itinerary for 2025 (our 12th trip to Peru)

Ancient Inca Trails criss-cross the Andes and weave a tapestry of history, culture, ruins, and mystery throughout Peru. Our new Inca Trail Experience combines the stunning Lares Inca Trail with one of Bio Bio Expeditions’ core values: to provide our guests with the most authentic adventure experience while engaging in  sustainable, regenerative tourism. Our new itinerary combines the multi-day Lares Trek with the famous final approach of the classic Inca Trail through the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu. By trekking the Lares route, we avoid the crowded, mismanaged classic Inca Trail and are rewarded with a remote wilderness and cultural experience while providing a source of work and income for the Quiswarani tribe. This Peruvian adventure combines the stunning majesty of the high Andes terrain with the rich history of the ancient Inca while engaging with, and supporting, their descendants.

The Amazon Jungle is a wildlife treasure, and is not to be missed by nature lovers. You’ll fly from Cuzco to Puerto Maldonado, where you will take a boat ride to the fantastic Refugio Amazonas, where you’ll stay 2 nights. Naturalists will take you on walks and boat trips to explore some of the natural wonders of the Tambopata National Reserve, including Oxbow Lake, a canopy tour and farm visit with ethnobotanical tour.
