Inka Trail

Inca Trail

Like the Romans, the Incas left a spectacular network of roads, which joined the four extremities of their empire. The Capac Ņan or Inca Trail crosses the coast, the highlands and part of the Peruvian jungle, temples, resting places or tambos and other Inca remains can be found along this spectacular route on which travellers can experience Peru's complex geography on foot. The most popular stretch is definitely the stone paved 43 Km that runs from Km 88 of the Cusco - Aguas Calientes railway to the citadel of Machu Picchu.

In three or four days of hard trekking you climb through the most diverse climates and ecosystems. Hundreds of orchids, colourful birds and dream-like scenery, together with important Inca ruins beside the road make this one of the most beautiful routes in the world. For clients not wishing to camp we can also arrange a two day trek on the final part of the trail, staying in a hotel on arrival. Or there is an alternative Balcony Trail, which arrives at the idyllic spot looking down on the ruins.

The classic four day inka trail is not for everyone and we can recommend other options.
