  • Days: 4

Head deep into the heart of Peru’s Cloud Forest on a Hidden Gems of Northern Peru expedition!

This special off-the-beaten-track journey takes you deep into Chachapoyas, the cloud forest region of northern Peru. Enjoy a hike to Gocta waterfalls, one of the tallest in the world, and marvel at the incredible Kuelap archaeological site, the largest ancient stone structure in the Americas. Built by the mysterious pre-Inca Chachapoyas civilization, it’s much less known that Machu Picchu, but equally impressive.
