South America's most famous trek. The trail starts at "KM 82” and follows an old Inca trail with several important Inca ruins and ends on the 4th day at the site of Machu Picchu. From there we take the bus to Agua Calientes (who feels like walking more: 1 hour downhill walking) and from there the train back to Cusco.

Reservations: Due to a very high number of visitors the amount of people entering the trail is now limited to 500 per day. In the high season (May - October) therefor, reservations have to be made at least 4 months in advance to assure your place. In the low season reservations may be made up until 4 weeks before starting the trek.
It is not allowed to hike the Inca Trail without official guidance.

    FAQ group departures:

    Can I book a group departure as a single traveller?

    Can we hire an extra porter for personal luggage?
    Yes, US $ 140 for the whole trip. Porters carry up to 16 kg from the clients and may be shared by several clients.

    Hotels, bus before/after trek?
    We can also organize transfers, hotels in Cusco or other cities, packages in the rest of the country etc. If you would prefer more services, from the airport in Cusco or Lima for example or a complete Peru travel package, please let us know.

    How many days acclimatization do we need before starting the trek?
    We recommend at least 1 full day (2 nights) on altitude before starting the trek. If you have been on altitude in the South of the country before (Colca Canyon, Puno, Cusco – all on altitude) or in Huaraz you shouldn´t consider this anymore and might as well go to the trek immediately after arrival to Cusco.

    Can you accommodate food sensitivities?
    Our cooks are used to dealing with vegetarians. However, other clients and staff may have a conventional diet. Meals are prepared in the same tent and scents of meals can not be avoided. if you do not want to eat your meal in the same tent with clients having a conventional diet, please inquire about a private tour.
