Secrets of the Sacred Valley

The trail to Machu Picchu can be lifelong. It’s a trip that’s built on a rock-solid dream, a commitment to spiritual enlightenment, mental integrity, dark chocolate and intense physical challenge. The scenery shifts with our careful, measured steps from the fertile plains of the Sacred Valley to Inca-era cobblestones and rare woodlands to 15th-century citadels and the celebrated Gate of the Sun to Machu Picchu’s marvel.

The Trek of Your Dreams

Find the Lost City

The Lost City of the Incas is a surreal landscape of terraces, ruins, hanging valleys and cloud forests painted with bright orchids. You’ll experience the buzz of the local markets, a bean-to-bar chocolate workshop and the comfort of strong tea as we break for a panorama-filled picnic. Feel the pulse of the mysterious, religious, ceremonial, agricultural and astronomical powerhouse crisscrossed by stone terraces that is Machu Picchu!

Our trip was amazing, way more than I expected. Kind and caring staff. Guides that were beyond fantastic. Disnarda is one of the best. Organized to a T. I’m raving about this trip. It was my first WW experience but won’t be the last. Thank you so much for providing a great life experience for women, I felt safe and cared for.”

Healing on the Inca Trail

In late 2014, I was diagnosed with a more uncommon type of breast cancer and immediately went through surgery, months of tests, radiation treatment and hormone treatment. As I was coming out of the fog, I came across Wild Women Expeditions through a mutual business group I belong to and discovered the trips they set up for women.
