• Once-in-a-lifetime journey through the magnificent Salkantay area en route to the legendary Inca site of Machu Picchu.

  • Hike historic sections of Inca trail through 15 different eco-systems.

  • Cross a 4,572m/15,000ft pass, offering beautiful views of glaciers, valleys and mountains.

  • Each day’s trek ends with a hot shower in a cosy lodge, complemented by a massage or a dip in an outdoor jacuzzi.

Although it was only a short trip, it exceeded all our expectations. Truly amazing.
