The rugged four-day walk along an Inca footpath to Machu Picchu will unveil as many memorable sights and experiences as the ancient city itself. Because you need a permit for the hike, the crowds aren't bad, and you'll see additional ruins as you walk through the cloud forest along the way. Adventure Life guides trips starting at $1,645. Make sure to pack bug spray, sunscreen, and a headlamp.
