The Inca Trail, with Machu Picchu as its final destination, is the best known and most popular hike among tourists. The total hike is about 45 km and it takes four days all together, including a one day visit to the ruins. The natural scenery is breath-taking. With views of snow capped mountains, the cloud forest and hiking between stunningly preserved ruins, is an unforgettable experience.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Between 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. we pick you up at your hotel and we go to km 82 by bus. From here on it will take us about 7 hours of hiking (13 km) to reach the first campsite in Huayllabamba.

Day 2: Physically a tough day: 16 km and climbing 2 high passes. Warmi Wanusca, with its 4200 meters, is the highest point of the trek. Breathtaking and stunning! Included is a visit to the ruins of Runkurakay and Sayacmarca. We will be camping in Pacaymayu.

Day 3: Today is a relatively easy one: we walk only 11 km and most of the route is flat and descending, meanwhile visiting the archaeological sites of Phuyupatamarca, Intipata and WiƱaywayna, the latter being our last campsite of the trek.

Day 4: After breakfast, we depart to Inti Punku, the entrance of the old Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. This will take us about an hour and a half and it is an unforgettable experience observing the ruins from that point. In Machu Picchu we have a guided tour of approximately 2 hours and in the afternoon we travel back to Cusco by train. Arrival time in Cusco is estimated around 9:00 p.m.
