• Hike the once-in-a-lifetime Inca Trail away from the crowds and in style.

  • Gourmet food, the best guides and secluded campsites.

  • Have Inca ruins to yourselves as you walk through various eco-systems.

  • Make the most of this unique and famous trek.

I think only one word can describe our trip and that is ‘spectacular!’.

When it comes to the trek, we wanted an adventure and that is exactly what we got! Our guide Lobo was outstanding! Incredibly knowledgable, fun, patient and inspirational in lots of ways, he contributed massively to our huge enjoyment of the hike. He was always keen to ensure that everyone was safe, happy and well fed!

The food was 5 star, we were in a group of 8 and we could not believe that night after night the chef prepared the most incredible meals, both of us agreed that we ate better at 4,000m than we did at sea level! The porters who supported the trek were also outstanding, nothing was too much trouble, everything was done with a smile and every single porter was quite literally olympic in their efforts to make sure everything (dining tent, food, toilets etc) was timed perfectly to be ready as soon as we arrived to camp.

The views were breathtaking, the hiking fantastic and a good challenge, the weather perfect and we met some incredible people on our journey and that was before we even made it to Machu Picchu - which was everything we hoped it would be and more!

Neither of us can speak highly enough of our trip. It really was one of those holidays where you come back with you heart still in the place you left. I have already been raving to all my co-workers about the trip and recommending Andean Trails - you certainly made a good impression!

The highlight was going to sleep on the second night camping and seeing the cloud sit below in a huge gulf of a valley with the mountains rising from the clouds under an incredible carpet of stars! Certainly no low points on this trip!

It was 5* - I really cannot rate anything higher - we were seriously impressed by everything!
