Hiking the Inca Trail in Peru is one of the classic iconic multi-day hikes in the world. Following this ancient and moderately challenging trail is the ultimate way to reach the spectacular ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Spend four days following in the footsteps of the Incas, walking alongside the river through a lush valley, over mountain passes and through the tropical cloudforest. There is also plenty of time to explore pretty Cusco and cosmopolitan Lima, both with their fascinating history and culinary delights to sample!

The Inca Trail is limited as to the number of hikers each day, making it incredibly popular in peak season from May-September. Permits are often sold out between 12-6 months in advance. Do check with us first as to whether permits are still available for your preferred travel dates. For any trekking fan, it is a must – a fantastic hike that takes you up to 4,800 metres above sea level. Crucially spend time in Cusco before you hike to acclimatise to the higher altitude, a fascinating city to explore with its Incan and colonial history. A classic!
