Join CRUK on a trek around one of the most beautiful sites of the ancient world.

In 2007, Machu Picchu was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and now is your chance to see this stunning and enigmatic sites in all their glory. This trek will take you to the famous site via the Salkantay route, a far quieter and less trodden path than the Inca Trail. This route will be a truly incredible experience and is suitable for anyone looking to test their endurance, with a reward that is beyond compare.

There will be a £3,900 fundraising target attached to each place, with a registration fee of £395. In order to guarantee your place on the trek we ask that you return 80% of your fundraising 8 weeks prior to the event, so by 14th July 2017. But, please don’t worry we’ve got loads of fundraising tips to help you achieve this.

Today 2 in 4 people survive cancer, we want to see this grow to 3 in 4 people within 20 years. But we need your help. So join the fight today and together we will beat cancer.
