info Info about this incredible tour

If you are looking for a great trekking tour, there is no better place than Cusco. The Inca Trail towards the mythical citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in the entire world.

You will cross the emblematic path that was used by the powerful Inca Pachacutec to arrive at its fortress hidden in the forest! The experience of walking the 4-day Inca Trail will not only allow you to observe the ruins of the place and the endemic nature that surrounds it, but you will also get in contact with local communities and experience their way of life.

The following days you will have a spectacular time trekking and discovering natural monuments, such as the Wayllabamba Valley, the Warmiwañuska Pass, the Pacaymayu Gorge, the Wiñaywaya Citadels and, of course, the Historic World Heritage Sanctuary of Machu Picchu (since 1983). In total, the 4-day Inca Trail is 45 km long and you walk around 6-7 hours per day. Put on your hiking boots, some comfortable clothes and get ready for the highlight of your trip to Peru!

Note: Please contact us to check the availability of Inca trail permits before booking.
