Inca Trail Trekking
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the most famous and popular trek in South America, perhaps the world. It is a spectacular and challenging trek through the high Andes on original Inca highway with a chance to visit extraordinary ruins, enjoy beautiful mountain views, walk through strikingly different climatic zones and finally experience the unique feeling of arriving at Machu Picchu by foot.
A trekking permit is required to do the actual Inca Trail trek. These are in high demand, and we recommend booking at least 90 days before hand.
There are 4 ways to enjoy the actual Inca Trail, but there are other fantastic trekking opportunities within Peru (which don’t require permits), like the Mountain Lodges to Machu Picchu.
TRADITIONAL INCA TRAIL 5 days
The one and only. Porters help carry your heavy bags, tents and handle all camp duties. Tents and sleeping bags are provided. The 4th night is in a hotel, returning for a second visit to the ruins the following day.
TRADITIONAL INCA TRAIL 4 days
A shorter version of the above – with one visit to the ruins at the end of the trek.
