macchu picchu trek make some noise

Join Classic FM's John Suchet on this trek to an ancient world - the lost city of Machu Picchu. It’s a view you’ll never forget.

Join Classic FM's very own John Suchet on this incredible trek from 30th March - 8th April 2018, and help change the lives of disadvantaged youngsters across the UK by raising money for Classic FM’s very own charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

This ten-day experience will see you head to Peru, with John, to discover the world heritage site of Machu Picchu and explore parts which many tourists don’t ordinarily get to see. You’ll explore the Inca capital of Cusco, hike in the Peruvian Andes and finally, reach the ancient lost city of Machu Picchu, situated 2,430m above the Sacred Valley. If you have an adventurous spirit, then this is the perfect challenge for you.

“I did the Inca Trail in 2009. It was the most memorable, heart-warming, emotional, tear jerking experience! The guides were amazing as were the porters, cooks (the food was fabulous). Extremely hard work, but so worthwhile. The country is vast and stunningly beautiful. Don't think about it, just do it!” - Jacqueline Green, Classic FM listener

"Wow! This was the challenge of a lifetime! It was the toughest but most rewarding experience of my life. I will never forget the breathtaking views of Machu Picchu and the amazing support of the team and trekkers." – Rachel Davids, 2016
