The Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is arguably one of the most famous and most popular multi-day hikes in the world. With permits now limited to roughly 200 tourists per day, the privilege to walk in the footsteps of Incan Pilgrims to their spiritual citadel at Machu Picchu often requires booking up to a year in advance.

It’s popularity is unsurprising, as this ancient trail scales spectacular mountain passes with breathtaking views across the majestic Andes; it passes the ruins of numerous Inca settlements, many of them meticulously preserved by the passage of time; it winds through remote Andean communities still active in the livelihoods of generations past and it leads us through contrasting ecological environments from the barren mountainside, to eerie Cloud Forest to the lush green valleys.

And of course the Classic Inca Trail concludes at the jewel in the Peruvian crown, the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Named as one of the “New Wonders of the World” in 2000.

We will camp for 3 nights in the most spectacular and remote locations. Far from the crowds and the lights of the city, the skies in the Andes are a wonder all to themselves and the display of constellations and shooting stars is truly mesmerising. We pride ourselves on making your camping experience as comfortable as possible, using only the highest quality equipment, and with a team of porters whose skill and experience will ensure your safety at all times. Perhaps the jewel in our crown though are our chefs, who are truly culinary masters on the mountain. You will be amazed at the delicious meals they prepare for us!

We take care of booking all transfers, transport and tickets, ensuring that the tour goes as smoothly as possible. Our guides are especially selected for their trekking experience and their historical knowledge; keeping us on the right path, setting the pace for the hike and providing historical commentary and context for the many sites that we will see along the way.

Our time on the trail demands a number of steep ascents to passes above 4,000m. As such we consider this trek to be ‘Challenging’ and recommend it for people with a good level of fitness, and some trekking experience. If you are unsure of whether this trek is for you, please do get in touch as we would be happy to discuss it with you.

We look forward to welcoming you on this unforgettable trek, guaranteed to leave you breathless….from the views!

Classic Inca Trail is the perfect journey of your vacations¡ Waht are you waiting for, book now.
