Inka Trail & Cusco

The historic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is a classic hike, considered by many to be one of the greatest short treks in the world. Importantly, our trek along the Inca Trail spends ample time in Cusco and exploring some of the impressive Inca sites in the Sacred Valley. This not only allows us to acclimatize to the altitude, but also provides a fascinating introduction to Incan culture and history before heading out onto the infamous Inka Trail. During the trek we ascend the passes, jungle trails and cloud forest to appreciate the panorama of Andean peaks that would have inspired the Inca people as we make our way to Machu Picchu. Words cannot describe the exhilaration of the first sighting of the enigmatic ruins and we allow plenty of time to visit the massive sanctuary. Rather than heading straight back to Cusco we spend a night in Aguas Calientes which vitally gives us a second visit to the ruins and an opportunity to visit the majestic site at its best, early the following morning.

Our focus is fixed on your individual requirements, interests and wishes, so you can expect our itineraries to be of the mold breaking – not cookie-cutter – variety.
