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.

Explore Peru and hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu! Your food and equipment are carried for you. You carry a day pack. Hikes are 8-12 miles a day with 2,000 elevation gains.
