Organized activities will get posted to the BCO calendar as we get closer to the trip date and we’ll also have signup sheets available for each day’s activities, the night before.
The four-day Inca Trail trek passes through a stunning combination of the region’s ruins, mountainscapes, and cloud forests. Once you catch your first glimpse of Machu Picchu in the early morning light, you’ll know it was all worthwhile. Best of all, since we run our own treks, we can ensure the fair treatment of our porters and the quality of food and equipment, so you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the region.

Since we’re going to be a high elevation, we have a 3 day acclimation period. If you experience altitude sickness at any part of the hike, you’re required to descend to a lower elevation.Read More
