4 Days - 3 Nights


This is one of the most famous and incredible trekking routes in the world! Undertaking this trek is an opportunity to go back in time and live with the Incas. Remember, the Inca Trail is not only for your feet but also for your mind...


Day 1 – The Start of the Adventure - 'Inca flat'!


We will pick you up from the Hotel them we will go to Piskacucho by bus (82 kilometer) where the trail starts. There will be a breakfast stop in Ollantaytambo.
To start the trail (2720m/8923ft), we cross the Vilcanota River and follow its route to the right. The first day is relatively easy (a warm-up on the 'Inca flat' terrain) and we will have great views of the site of an Inca Fortress (‘Huillca Raccay'), the vast and incredible Inca site ‘Llactapata' the Urubamba mountain range that divides the jungle and the Andes and the beautiful snow-capped peak of Veronica (5860m/19225ft).
Our first campsite will be in Wayllabamba (3000m/9842ft)


Day 2 – The Trail Trial!


After waking up and having breakfast, we will start a steep ascent towards the highest pass (Abra de Warrmihuañusca/'Dead Woman's Pass 4200m/13779ft). On this day a real sense of achievement is felt on reaching the top! After a rest here, we begin the descent to the lunch stop which is located at Pacaymayu (3550m/11646ft).
On the way up to the pass we will be able to see some hummingbirds and other birds. Also we will have the time to appreciate an incredible variety of native plants and trees such as the ´Polylepis´ or Q'ueuña trees which grow in the astonishing cloud forest located at 3650/11972m.

Day 3 – Back in the past!


After breakfast begins the steep climbing to Runkuraqay pass (almost 4000 meters).
This day we also will visit the archaeological sites of ‘Phuyupatamarca’ (meaning ‘Town in the Clouds’) and to reach the third highest point on the trail (3680m)). The views from here of the mountains, canyons and surrounding area are spectacular.
The Inca site, ‘Phuyupatamarca’, is located a few minutes walk from the third pass and after visiting this, we continue walking (3000 steps!) through the cloud forest and the impressive agricultural Inca site of ‘Intipata’ until we arrive at our third campsite Wiñay Wayna (2680m/8792ft).
A short distance from this campsite is located the Inca site ‘Wiñay Wayna’ (‘Forever Young’).


Day 4 – Machu Picchu in its Glory!



We leave the last campsite very early. It is an early start in order to get to ‘Inti Punku’ (‘Sun gate’) (2730m/8792ft) before sunrise. This is the place from where you will have your first dramatic view of Machu Picchu (2400m/7873ft). After some time there, we will walk down the last part of the trail to the spot where you can take the classic photo (picture postcard shot) of this ancient city. Finally we visit Machu Picchu itself!
A walking tour is given by your guide and after this you can explore the mysterious city by yourselves.
