Machu Picchu tours news: Inca Trail 'is one of the best adventure attractions'

Travellers who are keen to book Machu Picchu tours could be encouraged to do so after the Inca Trail was named as one of the best adventure holiday locations in the world.

A jury consisting of leading travel writers, explorers and journalists honoured the route, which extends from the Peruvian city of Cusco to the ancient Incan citadel of Machu Picchu.

Thousands of travellers visit the area to trek the Inca Trail every year. Many consider the route to be one of the most famous, as well as one of the finest, in the world.

Simon Calder, one of the experts involved in the voting process for the nominations, told local news provider Peru Agency that people in the UK are prepared to put monetary worries aside and book Machu Picchu tours.

"We are convinced that despite the crisis, British love for adventure remains intact," he said.

Travellers can trek the route for themselves by booking onto The Adventure Company's The Inca Trail holiday.
