Day 1

Inca Trail

You will be picked up from your hotel and transported to the end of the road, 88Km, where you will meet the support team of porters for the Inca trail.

This first section is ideal for acclimatization purposes as you hike along the sacred Urubamba River. Camp tonight beyond the ruins of Llactapata Ruins. Whilst walking all you need to carry is your daypack. Your support team of traditional porters carries all camping equipment and performs all camp chores; all food is prepared by the cook.

Begin your luxury experience camping in Bedouin-style tents with beds, comfortable chairs to recline in while you recount your days treks or are waiting for your complimentary massage! Your gourmet meals are served with crystal glasses and silverware.

Day 2

Inca Trail

Trek up the Cusichaca valley to the small hamlet of Huallyabamba, the last inhabited place on the trail. The path continues on up past humming birds and stunted cloud forest. Your camp is the beautiful grassy area at Llulluchupampa with its outstanding views down the valley.

Day 3

Inca Trail

Possibly the hardest day of the trek, you'll rise early and head to the highest point of the trail - the impressive Warmiwanusca (Dead Woman's Pass) at 4200-metres. Descend into the Pacasmayo Valley and then climb again passing the Inca ruins Rucuracay.

The second pass of the day will give you spectacular views of the Vilcabamba Range. Walking on incredibly well-preserved Inca pathways, pass the Sayacmarca Ruins with plenty of time for an in depth tour and explanation. Continue along the ridge, passing through tunnels and fantastic views, where a slight ascent brings you to the Phuyupatamarca Ruins and your camp.

Meal Plan Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 4

Inca Trail - Machu Picchu

Your final day's hiking brings you down into the Cloud Forest on a seemingly endless Inca Stairway to Winay-Winay, another impressive ruin. On to Inti Punku, the Gateway of the Sun, for your first glimpse of Machu Picchu. After treasuring the moment, pass through the ruins before taking an organised tour of them.

After soaking up what is arguably one of the most famous set of ruins in the world, walk all of 20 meters from the site to your hotel where you will enjoy dinner in the evening shadows of Machu Picchu.
