Information about the Inca Trail


The most famous trek in the Americas, and is rated by many to be in the top 5 treks in the world. the Inca Trail offers a unique and unrivalled combination of history and spectacular scenery. Winding its way from the powerful Urubamba River, across mountain passes and through cloud forests, the ancient Inca road passes several ruined fortresses before reaching the Mysterious lost city of Machu Picchu. We use excellent local guides and skilled porters on the trek, as well as Great Adventure in Perú.


Some trips are like a stroll on the beach, while others have you trekking mountain passes. Some of you thrive on camping out on the savannah, while others may prefer a hot shower and a comfortable bed in a lodge. Follow the grading systems below to find the right trip for you.
