The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru is one of the greatest treks in the world.
Our 4-day Inca Trail features superb guides plus fairly paid and well-treated porters, so you can focus on enjoying the incredible journey to Machu Picchu.
Walk through ancient Inca ruins and dramatic Andean scenery as you make your way up and over the Dead Woman’s pass.
No Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is complete without seeing a gorgeous sunrise over the ruins from the famous sun gate.
We offer daily Inca Trail trek departures with porters who help to carry your personal and all communal kit on the trek to Machu Picchu.
Your days are spent hiking through various eco-systems, surrounded by mountain scenery unchanged for centuries.
Every step takes you closer to the legendary Machu Picchu, a beautiful Inca site that lay hidden from the world for centuries.
Read our blogs about the Inca Trail – a typical day, the meals you can expect and training tips.
Over many years we’ve built close relations with porter communities through our long-standing support of several community projects, including a Porter’s Project and Huchuy Yachaq.
You can also rely on our Cusco office to offer support and advice before and after the trek.

Climb Misti volcano, an excellent beginner’s peak and trekking challenge for your adventure holiday.
For those wanting to climb Misti (5,822m/19,101ft), the volcano is accessed from Arequipa.
Misti is the smallest in the range of three volcanoes in the area – Chachani (6,075m/19,931ft) and Ampato (6,310m/20,702ft) the other two.
It is no less imposing though, and its near-perfect conical shape is beautiful when seen on approach from the valley.
The dry season (Apr-Nov) is the best time to scale Misti, when walkers are rewarded with stunning views of its crater and the surrounding volcanoes.
Our fully-supported and guided trips are the perfect way to tackle this big peak, and you need to be well acclimatised before starting this trek.
We offer three more volcano climbs in the Arequipa area – Ampato, Chachani and Coropuna – and all are an adventure for climbers and walkers.
Contact us to plan your climb of Arequipa’s volcanoes.

For a high point we both agree it would be reaching the top of the pass on day two. Day 3 rained so that was somewhat of a low point, but part of the experience.
Accommodation: Excellent, great breakfast. Accommodation on the trail was most satisfactory, kept us dry, warm, and comfortable.
Food: Food consistently exceeded expectations. Multi-course meals, an inventive and gifted chef. Fresh veggies, healthy fare. Let me tell you what he made on our third (final) night: a cake!
Tom, this man (Eber) made a cake, with frosting and strawberries, in the middle of a rainforest on the side of a mountain!
Guide: Anna Maria displayed a thorough knowledge of all local natural and man made features, was friendly, and I cannot thank her enough.
Overall Organization: Everything had clearly been done before, and they had it down to a science. Everything ran on schedule and by the numbers. Experienced professionals.
Every (soles) you spend from a vendor or at a trailside stand helps someone make a living there.
I cant think of anything we would do differently.

I had to write to say, thank you for organising a terrific holiday for us! The scenery and the people were wonderful!
The scenery in Peru was just as stunning. However....the people surpassed the scenery!!! Manuel was our guide....he was fantastic and his enthusiasm for his country/people/culture was palpable! The porters was SO impressive and did everything they could to ensure we had a great trip!
The Huchuy Qosqo trek....was amazing and the homestay with Wilma and Demicio touched all our hearts!!! They welcomed us into their home and we had such a lovely night with them...it was a privilege! I’d recommend this to anyone going!
Thank you again Tom! We’ll certainly be recommending ye!!! Already have!
