IN A FEW WORDS
Machu Picchu is tucked within the mystical corridors of Peru's Andes Mountain Range. Despite the seclusion of this ancient ruin, Machu Picchu has become one of the most famous seven wonders of the world, hosting thousands of visitors each year- and rightfully so. However, at Beyond the Map, we believe the journey is half of the experience and getting to Machu Picchu is the perfect example of this. The Spring Break Peru trip is perfect for travelers that want to skip the overcrowded Inca Trail, and instead opt for the more secluded, lesser-known Salkantay trail. This trail was named among the 25 best Treks in the World, by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine. Similar to the Inca Trail, the Salkantay Trail is an ancient and remote footpath meandering through massive snowcapped mountains that collide with lush tropical rain forests.

I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to.
This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.
Since I've been back I have recommended these trips to so many people because this company creates these remarkable journeys that allow people to experience the world in a unique way. I can't wait to go on my next expedition with Beyond the Map!
