Cycle Machu Picchu to the Amazon

Visit the Inca capital of Cusco and cycle through rural Andean communities

After a day spent exploring the ancient Inca capital of Cusco and a spectacular train journey to the majestic Machu Picchu ruins, your cycling challenge will begin with a beautiful acclimatisation cycle from the impressive ruins of Ollantaytambo along the length of the Sacred Valley of the Incas to the artisan market of Pisac.

From here we will cut through the Andes, with spectacular views of the cordillera Ausangate, dropping down into the charming village of Paucartambo before a final tough climb to Tres Cruces, the last pass before the Andes begins its descent into the Amazon rainforest.

Following a spectacular sunrise over the Amazon, you will have the thrill of a 1,400m dirt-road descent, crossing multiple ecosystems until you reach the pristine cloud forest and set up camp.
The challenge continues as we cycle deeper into the rainforest of the Manu Biosphere Reserve, home to Peru's national bird, the Cock of the Rock, toucan, monkeys, spectacled bears, giant ferns, orchid and much much more

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects, like Tilly.
