While you’re in South America, hop on over to Peru to visit the must-see ruins of Machu Picchu. No words and no photos can truly express what you feel when you walk into the site and see the Inca splendor laid out before you. On the way there and back, between rides on planes, vans and trains, you’ll see magnificent mountains and valleys, and locals in colorful traditional dress.
Ride a Train through the Mountains
Settle into your comfortable seats for a ride through the dramatic landscape of mountains, canyons and rushing rivers. At times it seems you are perched on the edge of a great abyss!
Magnificent Machu Picchu
Both breathtaking and mind boggling, a visit to these ruins set on a rocky ridge is an unforgettable experience. Just imagine how this was all built – and why it was deserted.
