Welcome to the Classic Inca Trail, the most famous and most spectacular hiking route in South America! This ancient 45-kilometer trail follows the footsteps of the Inca pilgrims to the gates of the sacred city of Machu Picchu, one of the new 7 Wonders of the World

Our exciting itinerary offers 4 days of trekking along the original Inca pathways, passing an array of Inca ruins along the way.

The trail is located high in the Peruvian Andes climbing gradually from the valley floor (2,700 m/8,856 ft) to the most spectacular mountain passes (as high as 4,215 m/13,825 ft). At every turn, the surrounding scenery will take your breath away!

Hiking the 4-day Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a strenuous and awe-inspiring adventure. We will push ourselves to our physical limits, resting each night under the stunning Andean night sky.

On our final day, as the mist lifts to reveal the emerald peaks and terraced ruins of the mystical ancient city you’ll be rewarded for your efforts.

Action Peru Treks invites you to awaken your senses through this once in a lifetime experience trekking to Machu Picchu. If the 4-day trek is a bit too much for you, consider the Short Inca Trail hike instead.
