Description of Hiking the Inca Trail, Peru

If you’ve always wanted to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu but didn’t know where to find the time, look no further than this week-long small group tour.

Acclimatise in and around Cusco and the Sacred Valley for a couple of days before putting your best foot forward on one South America’s most legendary hiking routes.

Approaching Machu Picchu's Sun Gate after a night at Wiñay-Wayna camp allows for an uncrowded vision at dawn, before a full day appreciating the industry of the ancient Incas on a guided tour and in your own time. A scenic train ride back down into the Sacred Valley conjures further Andean images to treasure and keep for many more years to follow.

Please note: this hiking trip will still run even if trekking permits are not available on your desired departure date. The Lares Trek will be chosen instead of the Inca Trail Trek.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Hiking the Inca Trail, Peru

Environment

As this tour is the Inca Trek our Inca Trail Porters policy protects the rights and conditions of porters and is strictly enforced. When we visit the Sacred Valley of the Inca we choose only the best trained guides, who will help you to appreciate the importance of respecting the environment of these heritage sites and understand the conservation efforts being undertaken in.

The entrance fees will help to conserve and preserve the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu. When we camp on the Inca Trek we also make sure we leave only our footprint behind, any litter is taken with us.

Community

We have developed a policy on porters in Peru, pledging that all porters hired on the Inca Trail will have the same meals as clients hiking the trail; they will have access to tents; should they fall sick while hiking they will be evacuated; all gear must be weighed prior to trekking to ensure it is not too heavy; and an enforced weight limit of 5kg for each passenger is set.

Additionally we encourage our travellers to tip porters that they feel have provided excellent service as a way of supplementing their income. When we are in Aguas Calientes after Machu Picchu there is time to wander the markets found there where we encourage buying local handicrafts and gifts supporting
