Trek of a Lifetime - One Year to Machu Picchu
Join SBH Scotland to conquer the one and only Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – the world’s most important archaeological find and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World! There are literally thousands of Inca Trails within Peru and many other charity events sound similar, but there’s only one Inca Trail that leads through the majestic Sun Gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu!
"I've always talked about doing this" - Sound familiar? SBH Scotland are asking people to take action and start ticking things off their bucket lists - a trek like this is life affirming and truly is a once in a lifetime experience.
SBH Scotland also offer one of the lowest priced Peru Charity Treks with a minimum sponsorship level of £3,000 (up to 25% lower than other charities). SBH Scotland will also work with you to help you raise the minimum sponsorship in a variety of different ways, making your year leading up to the challenge just as much fun as the trek itself.
This classic Inca Trail encompasses 3 high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The trek will be tough and will certainly test us, but upon witnessing the sight of Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate mirrored with breathtaking views across the Andes your efforts are more than worthwhile. Standing proudly together as Team SBH Scotland!
