Semester in Cusco Excursions

On the Semester in Cusco program you will have the opportunity to go on multiple excursions and cultural activities. The highlight of this will of course be the overnight trip to Machu Picchu.

Is that all? No way! You will also have a city tour of Cusco and spend a day in the Sacred Valley, which is home to many other ancient ruins and small villages. We also encourage students to visit the many museums, markets, and historical areas of Cusco.

Peru has travel options for everyone, including the beach, mountains, big cities, small towns, some of the deepest, most remote jungle in the world, and the infamous Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable late in the world. While you might not get to see it all, we definitely recommend making the most of your time in Peru and visiting other areas. It’s usually easiest to book your independent trips once you arrive in Cusco, but you can start thinking about the places you’d like to go before you get onsite!
