The most iconic walking route to the ruins of Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail is one of the most famous and beautiful treks in the world.
Not only will the scenery move you, but our personal guides will fill you in on the incredible history, legends and beliefs of the Incas perpetuated still today by the local Quechuan communities you’ll meet on the way. The route takes four days, following a sacred pilgrim path, involves visits to archaeological sites, dramatic mountain vistas and dense cloud forests rich in Andean flora and fauna, reaching Machu Picchu at the Sun Gate at sunrise on the final day.
The Inca Trail is extremely popular and has limited places, so our experts will make sure that your trek is comfortable and away from the crowds so that you can enjoy the scenery in a more mindful way. The camps you can choose range from deluxe tents to completely private set ups with an expert guide and porters to accompany you throughout the trek.
When to Go
The Peruvian winter is the best time to trek the Inca Trail as the weather is drier and you are likely to experience clear blue skies. The route is closed during February.
Whatever you want your luxury tour or safari itinerary to include, we’ll create something fully bespoke for you… and only you.
