Additional Information

Don't miss your chance to hike the Inca Trail in 2020!

Embark on a 7-day Peruvian adventure and immerse yourself in the colorful culture of the Andes. Begin your journey in Cusco, the vibrant capital of the Incas, and witness the fascinating juxtaposition of ancient indigenous culture and colonial Spanish architecture. Sip on coca tea, learn a few words of Quechua, and soak in the incredible history and natural setting of this town nestled high in the mountains. Venture into the Sacred Valley for a trip to the famed Pisac market as well as to Ollantaytambo, the oldest living town in the Americas.

Test your limits with three full days of trekking on the Inca Trail. Ascend through lush jungle along rugged mountains to incredible archaeological sites such as Phuyupatamarca (‘Town in the Clouds’) and Winay Wayna. Hike by day and enjoy a comfortable camp setting complete with gourmet meals prepared by your professional chef by night. After 26 miles of trekking, reach Inti Punku (‘Sun Gate’) and be greeted with a jaw-dropping sunrise view of Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

The government restricts the number of Inca Trail permits to 500 per day (inclusive of porters). Demand for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure is extremely high, and permits are often sold out (and non-transferable) as much as a year in advance. We expect they will sell out even faster this year. Get ahead of the pack and reserve your permit now. Our Peruvian operator, Valencia Travel Cusco, will secure your spot as soon as permits drop. Plan ahead and hike in the footsteps of the Incas.
