Parting Shots: Deanna & Brett Hike the Inca Trail

Deanna & Brett created a unique itinerary in Peru. They spent a day meandering around the barrio of Miraflores after their arrival to Lima and before their flight to Puerto Maldonaldo, in the Amazon Rainforest. Here they spent three days enjoying the tropical cuisine, rainforest excursions, and intense hammocking at the jungle lodge Reserva Amazonica.

Next Deanna & Brett flew up into the Andes and explored Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, before heading to the Sacred Valley to visit the Amaru weavers and to get their legs working on some hikes near the Pisac ruins. A couple days there and they felt acclimatized to the Andean altitude to start their 4 day, 3 night trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, arriving to the Sun Gate just in time for sunset. They spent their last couple nights at the world-renowned Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel where I’m sure those thermal baths were appreciated!

Thanks again to Deanna and Brett for these wonderful shots.
