4-day trek along sections of original Inca stone paths on the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Get your first view of Machu Picchu at sunrise from the Sun Gate.
This is a fully supported hike, with fairly-paid porters, experienced expert guides and great equipment.
We organise a briefing meeting in Cusco with support and advice and before you trek.
Trek through a variety of wildlife-rich ecozones, watch for hummingbirds and spot numerous species of orchids.
Sign up for the ascent of Machu Picchu mountain or Huayna Picchu mountain for the best views over Machu Picchu itself.
Incredible! We had an amazing time on the Inca Trail! The accommodation and food surpassed all our expectations - out of 4 months travelling through South America it was some of the best we'd had. Our guide Diego was great - crazy but very knowledgeable - cheery and upbeat with a vast knowledge of Inca culture and the local environment.
The highlight was reaching the top of Dead Woman's Pass on the second day - that was the highest and most difficult point so it was a real feeling of achievement. Great fun and an amazing experience. Thank you to our brilliant guide, the incredibly athletic and dedicated porters and to you guys in the UK who organised the trip for us; everything was perfect. I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on.
