Trip Highlights

  • Discover the history of Peru via guided tour of Lima with a notable historian

  • Explore the Inca Trail in a guided, porter-supported hike that follows in the footsteps of the native inhabitants of pre-colonial Peru

  • Explore the fantastic stone ruins of Machu Picchu, South America’s most awe-inspiring archaeological site

  • Visit the major Inca monuments near Cusco, a charming, colonial city and ancient capital of the Incas

This Continuing Medical Education (CME) class in Wilderness and Travel Medicine while exploring Lima, hiking Peru’s Inca Trail and visiting Machu Picchu is a true classic that should be on every adventurer’s “to-do” list.

It is difficult to describe the magnificence of Machu Picchu, a stone fortress city nestled below stunning peaks. It is perhaps the greatest mystery of the Inca Empire. The four-day trek on the Inca Trail to reach this pre-Columbian site is a pilgrimage through time. Beautiful Andean scenery, as well as cultural history, unfolds as we hike up and down steep stone staircases past ancient Inca outposts.

Our guides and porters will carry all of your gear and prepare delicious meals on the trail. After hiking the Inca Trail you’ll have a quick afternoon to explore Machu Picchu, returning the following day to thoroughly appreciate this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Center.

Wilderness Medicine Continuing Medical Education seminars will typically take place in the afternoons between 5 and 7pm, before dinner is served.
