Green New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the most pristine places on earth, but it's also steeped in sophisticated cultural attractions.
One ideal alternative hike to the classic Inca Trail is the <strong>Mountain Lodges of Peru</strong> or MLPtrek (tel. <strong>011/511-421-7777</strong>; <strong><a href="http://www.mountainlodgesofperu.com" target="_blank">www.mountainlodgesofperu.com</a></strong>), which gives hikers a feel for the Inca Trail without being quite so rough. This new hike follows a string of ancient Inca roads and mule trails for about 40-miles eastward to Machu Picchu (versus the western-bound route of the classic trail), and hikers following this route stay in four comfortable Mountain Lodges along the way. You can book directly with Mountain Lodges of Peru; a number of leading adventure travel operators also offer the trip, throwing in private tours and airfare for a bit more money. <strong>Backroads</strong> (tel. <strong>800/GO-ACTIVE</strong>; <strong><a href="http://www.backroads.com" target="_blank">www.backroads.com</a></strong>) is one highly recommended MLP operator. It's known for both its personal service and its dedication to small group sizes; this photo shows half of an average group setting off on a hike.
