Peru 8-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 28 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Peru.

Eight days in Peru is an ideal trip length for pairing a trek to Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail with cultural experiences in Cusco and adventure activities in the Sacred Valley. For ambitious hikers, the Salkantay Trek is an alternate route. You can also combine a visit to the ancient Incan citadel with three days of whitewater rafting on the Apurimac and Santo Tomás rivers and camping under the stars on remote canyon beaches. With 8 days, it's also possible to see both Machu Picchu and the Amazon without rushing—taking transport time into consideration, you can still spend 2 full days observing wildlife and exploring the rainforest.
