Machu Picchu Hiking Tours - Footsteps of Inca

Looking to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 2018? It's time to reserve your spot. The Inca Trail is by far the most famous of South America’s many trekking routes and, although the hiking trail is only 26 miles in length, it manages to pack in more natural beauty, culture and adventure than many trails three times its size. Whether you opt for the 5 day Discovery Inca Trail, the 4 day Classic Inca Trail, or one of the alternative treks, it’s that moment when you make your final ascent through the cloud forest on the Tambo del Inka, reach the Sun Gate, and descend into the citadel that makes it all worthwhile. Machu Picchu is truly one of the modern world’s most incredible introductions to an ancient civilization. Let us create a custom program that allows you to not only experience the Inca Trail, but the many other exciting adventures that await you in Cusco and the Sacred Valley as well.

Your Authentic Hiking Tour Journey

The Machu Picchu hiking tour is a magnificent journey along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for hikers in physical condition to trek in a single day for up to ten hours, with rest breaks as needed. The pace is brisk, but the beauty of the area surround the hiker every footstep of the way. The final day, we arrive at Machu Picchu with most of the day to connect with the ruins before getting back to the train in Cusco.

Lodge to Lodge Trekking

Lodge to Lodge Trekking

Slow travel is the goal for many travelers. Lodges on the Salkantay and Weavers Trails have brought this experience to a whole new level, allowing trekkers to move from lodge to lodge in a clean, safe and even luxurious way. Hike to Machu Picchu in style, passing through fruit orchards and coffee plantations run by local farmers, as well as mountain passes and glacier lakes, along with lesser-known Inca ruins.

Other Ruins Rarely Seen

Other Ruins Rarely Seen

The hiking trail to Machu Piccu is not the only way to see the Andes. Salkantay, Inca Quarry, Lares, and Choquequirao have not benefited from the Inca Trail’s marketing, but all offer similar, and some may say even better experiences. Choquequirao is a ruin you will never see on the Inca Trail, and Salkantay offers landscapes other trekkers can only imagine.
