One of the top treks in the world for good reasons! But our trek is one of a kind as we support female porters in a male dominated industry.  Along with our local partner, we are creating a much needed change in the industry to finally include women and the indigenous community. We now have 16 female porters on the classic Inca trail who will be joining you.

Additional Information

As a classic trek, you get to experience Machupicchu first-hand at sunrise as you trek on the Classic Inca Trail over 4 days. The trek allows you to camp in the wilderness with the support of an experienced guide and a team of cook and porters in the gorgeous Andes mountains. A soak in the hot spring of Aguas Caliente awaits you at the end of your trek. You also spend time walking in the old part of Lima and visit the beautiful town of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. In the process, you will create lasting memories with new friends. These are all the reasons why this experience remains a classic while supporting our women empowerment work.
