Cusco/Machu Picchu and/or Amazon Basin Extensions | Mountain Madness


Mountain Madness has a variety of Peruvian Andes’ climbing trips on offer (see Outpost Travel Center PERU here) and also offers climbing/ice trekking courses if you’re a beginner/intermediary, or just in need organized, supervised preparation for a climb.

Another great feature on offer with their climbing tours in Peru are “Add-on/Extension” options before and/or after a climbing excursion, at extra cost/additional fee, with the idea of allowing travellers to make the most of their time in Peru.

Here are these before and/or after tour extensions, as described by Mountain Madness:

Option 1: Cusco and Machu Picchu extension. A 4-day add-on tour that gives a taste of Peruvian culture while getting you acclimated for your climb expedition in the Cordillera Blanca. Explore the high-altitude city of Cusco (11,000 ft/4,000 m), the Inca archaeological sites of the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. This extension is a great way to acclimatize and to maximize a trip to Peru.

The Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica Tambopata, where Mountain Madness guests on this tour stay.

Option 2: Amazon Rainforest extension. Celebrate the success of a Mountain Madness climbing expedition with a walk under the canopies of the Amazon and to the sounds of tropical birdlife. For trekkers on trips such as the Inca Trail, Inca Gold, and Ausangate Trek or Climb, this extension offers an opportunity to see the diverse flora and fauna of the greatest forest on the planet. You get to choose from a variety of itineraries.

Option 3: For family or friends, adventure getaways combine the two options for a complete Peruvian experience!
