Paragliding Peru : Learn how to fly in Cusco!

Peru is a great destination for adventurous tours, especially the area of Cusco. Travellers in Peru can choose from many options: ATV tour, river rafting, bungee jumping, hiking, biking and so much more. However, the tour that appealed to me the most was paragliding in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

De meest gevarieerde trek van Peru: de Inca Jungle Trek naar Machu Picchu

Omdat de traditionele Inca Trail naar Machu Picchu altijd ver van te voren uitverkocht is, is de Inca Jungle Trek, het beste alternatief.
