This adventure is a special, once a year, extension of the Wonders of Peru. (Please see our Wonders of Peru summary.) This tour includes the Inca Festival of the Sun celebrated each year during the winter solstice; an authentic celebration to worship Apu Inti Taita, the Sun God. Processions, music and dancers in traditional clothing will offer their praises for the return of the Sun, the source of life. Our adventure concludes with the flight back to Lima and a guided city tour.
The Inti Raymi adventure is meticulously planned so you can visit Machu Picchu on June 21, the day of the Winter Solstice — the single most coveted day in the year to be in Machu Picchu — and return to Cusco in time for the annual Inti Raymi Festival on June 24.
