Trek - or not - on the Inca Trail

6th June 2003 at 01:00
Machu Picchu is high on the wish list of many travellers, and teachers at least have a summer break long enough to get there, although the demands of the summer term may leave little time for planning an independent journey.

Exodus has two ways to help make the dream come true. Its 15-day Sacred Land of the Incas non-trekking trip also includes a drive across the Andes to Lake Titicaca and a boat ride out to Taquile Island to stay with a local Indian community. The price of pound;1,614 per person, for departures on August 2 or 16, includes all flights and transportation, 13 nights'

accommodation and the services of a tour leader.

Serious hikers will spit on the idea of such a cushy holiday, so, for them, Exodus runs its High Trail of the Incas trek. The highlight of the 14-day trip, leaving on July 21 or August 4 or 18, is a six-day hike along the Inca Trail, passing the mountain of Salkantay and visiting the ruins of Runkuraqay and Sayaqmarka. The price of pound;1,724 per person includes all flights, 12 nights' accommodation, some meals and the services of a tour leader. Details: 01252 760 000; www.exploreworldwide.com.
