Inca Trail Hike Tours

Voted one of the best treks in the world by many travel forums, the Inca Trail is truly a once in a lifetime experience. An epic fusion of adventure, nature and history. The world famous Classic Inca Trail is 4-days and 3 nights of trekking and camping in the Andes Mountains. It is 44km/26miles long and traverses over 10 varied ecological zones, including cloud forest, glacial peaks and tropical forest. The trail has over 450 species of birds, 200 species of orchids and an array of cascading waterfalls.

You have the option to modify this classic, if you wish. The 5-day version is almost exactly the same route, it just offers an extra day to acclimate to the altitude. Whereas the Short Inca Trail only coverers a third of the total distance, but rest assured, it cuts no corners on the overall experience.

To end this epic adventure, is the crown jewel, the majestic Machu Picchu Citadel. This is the hike to end all hikes, with challenge and reward dished out in equal measure.

A little History

If you think that sounds tiring, how about following the trail of the Incas in its entirety, which was around 40,233 km (25,000 mi) long? Now that would be an epic walk! The empire once stretched into Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia, Argentina, and Colombia as well as Peru, with roads connecting settlements and trading centers across South America.

The road the famous Inca trail to Machu Picchu is an original path that was constructed to absolute perfection. They built thousands of stairs, supported by retaining walls in some sections to avoid landslides during rainy season. The majority of the trails maintains the original stone and architecture from the Incas. There are other sections that had to be restored, but the esthetic of the architecture has kept its integrity. Priests and high-ranking officials were the only people who had the pleasure of embarking on this divine journey to the holiest site of them all. Inca engineering was the most advanced form of engineering of its time. It still remains a mystery as to how they succeeding in constructing the most structurally sound temples and homes in very unforgiving terrain.

Machu Picchu citadel was built in the 15th century as a royal Incan enclave but was abandoned less than 100 years later when the Spanish came to conquer. The settlement went unoccupied for many years and was eventually covered by the encroaching Amazon Jungle. It was later rediscovered in 1911 when American archaeologist and explorer Hiram Bingham came searching for the illusive Vilcabamba.

Completing the classic Machu Picchu hike has become one of the most coveted adventures in the world, and many travelers have it at the top of their bucket list. So, why do Inca Trail hiking tours trump other fabulous treks? The rich history, the challenge that’s not off reach and the many ruins you get to explore along the way.

A great adventure!

May. 2023

We made 4D / 3N of the Inka Trail. The experience was challenging, but it was worth it. Chef Fortunato's meals and explanations of Jony and David's places were very complete. Tmb the patience to make sure we all get there on time.


Fast and friendly service

We did not get to specify the service due to the political situation in the country, however the company quickly and carefully proceeded with the return. Very good service and when the situation calms down we will resume service with them.
