Follow in the footsteps of the Incas, as you challenge yourself to one of the World’s best-known hikes - the Inca Trail.
Starting in Cusco with a local city tour, take in the architecture and the history-rich streets before settling down in anticipation of what is to come. Your next two days are a perfect prelude for the Inca Trail. You will be exploring the magical ruins of Sacsayhuaman, once a battlefield and the historic capital of the Inca Empire. Traverse the rarely visited ruins or Moray, view the magnificent snow-capped Cordillera Vilcanota, and take in a series of salt plans that have been worked since Inca times.
Our Inca trek begins on day four, where we meet our team of porters and cooks, before strapping on our day packs and setting off on an afternoon walk above the Urubamba river before settling into our picturesque campsite. We spend the next three days trekking through valleys, and along mountainous trails. Each afternoon we arrive to a set up camp and are welcomed with a warm cup of tea and friendly smiles.
Our adventure sees us traverse Dead Woman’s Pass and ascend through Sayacmarca before reaching Machu Picchu. Words cannot describe the views once you reach this sacred place. Enjoy a fully guided tour of the residential, religious and agricultural sectors, and explore the area before heading back to Cusco via train for one last night to reminisce about the extraordinary trip we have just been lucky enough to be a part of.
