We are hoping that the quick getaway trips will give clients the first taste of all Peru has to offer so they will come back to see the other sites of Peru.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
Kontiki Tours and Travel, has just introduced quick and exciting trips to Peru in order to meet the needs of travelers who have less vacation time this year. The Peru Quick Getaway Trips, viewable at http://www.kontiki.org/ can be customized for travelers who like culturally rich destinations or adventure but who this year want to do quick trips in order to stay close to the office.
Trips include a ruins tour in and around the Inca capital of Cuzco, an exciting train ride through the mystical Sacred Valley and a tour of remarkable Machu Picchu with a night in the nearby village of Machu Picchu. You may choose to visit the ruins at Pisac and Ollantaytambo as well as a visit to the famous Indian market in Pisac. Another option lets you adventure your way through the Sacred Valley mountain biking through the archeological sites surrounding Cuzco, ATV touring in the mountains near Cuzco, River rafting in the Urubamba River, and horseback riding in the archeological ruins among many exhilarating options.
Jose Irauzqui, Kontiki president says, "We are hoping that the quick getaway trips will give clients the first taste of all Peru has to offer so they will come back to see the other sites of Peru." Beyond Cuzco and Machu Picchu, Peru is also home to the most pristine areas of the Amazon Jungle; Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world; the condors flying above the second largest canyon in the world; the mysterious Nazca Lines; and the recently discovered Choquequirao Ruins.
Choquequirao sometimes referred to as the sister Machu Picchu, is a 40 mile trek located in the Salkantay sacred mountain and the Apurimac River Canyon. In Choquequirao, some areas are still covered in wild foliage and clients will feel like they are in Machu Picchu 25 years ago when there were only a few travelers there.
The quick trips are 5 to 7 days long and the other sites of Peru are listed in 3 to 4 day side trips that can be added on to the quick trips to make the trip a little longer. For additional information on Peru Quick Getaway Trips please visit our site at http://www.kontiki.org/.
