Embark on a journey that transcends time and space, a path where history whispers through ancient stones and nature’s beauty unfolds at every turn. The Inca Trail, a legendary route carved by the Incas centuries ago, offers an unparalleled adventure over four unforgettable days. As you trek through breathtaking Andean landscapes, dense cloud forests, and awe-inspiring archaeological sites, you’ll find yourself connected to a rich heritage and the majestic spirit of the Andes. This isn’t just a hike; it’s a pilgrimage that brings you closer to the heart of an ancient civilization and the wonders of Machu Picchu. Prepare to be moved, challenged, and transformed by the timeless magic of the Inca Trail.

IMPORTANT: Due to restrictions issued by the Peruvian government about the number of people allowed on the Inca Trail per day, we recommend that you book at least 6 to 6 months in advance (6+ months for the May to September high season), thus making sure to do the Inca Trail. However, you can ask us by  email or Whatsapp about permit availability.
