See for yourself why this is the most popular hiking trail in the Andes! You'll enjoy spellbinding Mountain scenery, unforgettable Inca sites, abundant orchids and hummingbirds. We spend four full days walking to Machu Picchu, and a fifth day exploring in the famous ruins themselves. After more than 25 years operating this route, we know how important it is to give all participants adequate time to enjoy the sights at a comfortable pace. Stroll down the Royal Road into the famous Lost City of the Incas! Many of our returning passengers tell us they found the trek more strenuous and challenging than they had anticipated. During four hiking days you cover 35 km/21.9 miles, starting at 8,700' and finishing at 7,860' above sea level. You must cross two high passes, with a maximum elevation of 13,887'. While trail conditions are generally good, and indeed the condition of centuries-old Inca paving stones is astonishing, some steep trail sections require careful footing and good hiking boots with lug soles. Nevertheless, thanks to our careful pacing, dedicated guides and professional support staff, the trip is suitable for novices as well as experienced hikers. Porters carry the heavy gear; you walk carrying only a day-pack. Cooks prepare wholesome meals from Fresh ingredients and handle all the kitchen chores. You sleep warm and protected in high quality tents.
