  • Original Inca Trail
  • Sayacmarca, LLactapata, Phuyupatamarca, Intipata & Wiñayhuayna Archaeological Sites
  • Machu Picchu
This tour allows you to experience the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu over a period of five days, allowing for more time on the trail to visit the Inca sites and Machu Picchu.

If you have the time, we highly recommend this tour to Machu Picchu as the route is much less crowded than the standard Inca Trail and you will be able to fully appreciate the history and way of life of the Incas while soaking in the spectacular scenery of the Andes. Your last night is spent in a hotel in Aguas Calientes, giving you two days to visit the last city of Machu Picchu and time to add on the optional climb to Huayna Picchu.

This tour includes meals and camping accommodation while on the trek, including one night in a hotel.
6 hours Camping
This action-packed day of our tour begins with a transfer to the Km 82 via private transportation, where you begin the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. After meeting our porters, you cross the Urubamba River by a bridge and continue along the river with views of the Vilcanota mountain range and Mt. Veronica (5,713m / 18,745 ft). Traveling through the Sacred Valley, you’ll see vestiges of an ancient culture and its agriculture practices. Arriving in the early afternoon, you will have plenty of free time to explore the Inca site of Llactapata. Camp at Llactapata.

Lunch and dinner included.

5 hours Camping
This day involves some of the most spectacular scenery Peru has to offer, including a cloud forest that contains the rare Queñua tree. Our tour continues through the community of Huayllabamba , as the trail ascends steeply before reaching a large area of pampas below the first pass. Camp at Llulluchapampa (3,750m / 12,300 ft), with a breathtaking view of Mt. Huayanay.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Inca Trail Hike Details: 7km / 4.4 miles; 5 Hours; Altitude: from 2,926m / 9,600 ft. to 3,870m /12,700 ft.
Camping
Physically, this is the most strenuous day of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, as the trail ascends steeply toward Warmiwañusca pass (4,170m /13,680 ft). From there, the trail descends to the Pacaymayo River and then climbs slowly past the ruins of Runkuraqay. Another pass takes you from Runkuraqay to the ruins of Sayacmarca (3,850m / 12,628 ft). Along the way, you’ll see some advanced Inca engineering before coming upon the beautiful ruins of Phuyupatamarca (3,657m /12,000 ft). Camp at Phuyupatamarca.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Inca Trail Hike Details: 14km / 8.8 miles; 8 Hours; Altitude: from 3,870m /12,700. ft to the pass 4,242m / 13,920 ft. and overnight at 3,610m / 11,850 ft.
3 Star Hotel
From Phuyupatamarca, you follow the flagstone trail that winds sharply down into the cloud forest to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna (2,700m / 8,855 ft). Wiñay Wayna is located along the same watercourse as Phuyupatamarca and contains well-restored Inca ruins. After a two-hour walk through a cloud forest along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, you at last come to a highlight of our Peru tour: Machu Picchu (2,400m / 7,875 ft), entering through Intipunku, the Sun Gate. After a brief tour, stay overnight at a hotel in Aguas Calientes.

Breakfast and lunch included.

Inca Trail Hike Details: 13km / 8.1 miles; 8 Hours; Altitude: from 3,610m / 11,850 ft to 7,875 ft.
Dedicate your morning to exploring extraordinary Machu Picchu by waking up early to catch sunrise over the ruins. The remainder of the day holds various opportunities for your own exploration, including a climb to the sacred peak of Huayna Picchu, up to the Inka Bridge, or through the lush cloud forest to the Temple of the Moon.

The afternoon train takes you back to Ollantaytambo, where you are transferred to the vibrant Chinchero Market. Here local artisans will give you an introduction to their textile creations, known to be among the best in Peru.

Good to know
Payment

Other Practical InformationDETAILS ABOUT HIKING THE INCA TRAIL Inca Trail regulations limit the number of people allowed on the Inca Trail to 500 people each day, including guides, porters and support staff. Permits are given on a “first-come, first-serve” basis only, so booking early is essential. This trek consists of six to eight hours of hiking per day. Plenty of time is allowed for you to set your own pace. Porters carry all equipment, food and 8kg of your personal belongings. You are responsible to carry your daypack with your camera, water bottle, and extra layers of clothing and/or rain gear. Free from the weight of a large pack, you have more time for snapping photos and enjoying the spectacular scenery. You will awake early in the morning to a fresh cup of tea brought to your tent, along with a bowl of hot water for washing. During the trek, our experienced cooks will prepare your meals using locally grown produce. The meals are well constructed, taking into account how your body digests food at different elevations.
Cancellation40% Deposit payable upfront. Remaining balance payable 60 days prior to trip departure. Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, but the 40% deposit paid is non-refundable. No refund applicable within 60 days of departure.
