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.

BABY INCA 2 days

Trekkers short on time, leave the train just before Aguas Calientes, and intersect the Inca trail for the final 16kms, arriving at Machu Picchu mid afternoon. Overnight in a hotel and explore the ruins the next day before returning to Cusco.

LUXURY TRADITIONAL INCA TRAIL 5 days

Trek in style! Reward yourself each night with oversized tents with beds, portable toilets and hot-water showers, gourmet chef-prepared meals with champagne, crystal glasses and silverware, and the most well-earned massage service on earth. A once in a life-time trek.
