Peru isn’t just for mountain hiking—there are some great river-rafting opportunities here as well. You could plan a combined adventure that involves braving the class III/IV rapids of the Santo Tomás River with a hike along the famous Inca Trail, passing through the beautiful Sacred Valley on your way to the royal Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Or you could really push it to the limit and combine rafting down the Santo Tomás River and hiking to Machu Picchu with fly fishing at a lake in an indigenous community and mountain biking to the ancient Inca archeological site of Moray, near Cusco.
