After years of taking tropical cruises, we have been looking into a really exciting and unusual tour. Hiking The Inca Trail in Peru! Our contact is a well known company specializing in Inca Trail Tours. The Inca Trail is Peru's best known hiking trek beginning at Cusco, Peru and arriving through the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu, the most photogenic ruins on earth!
The Inca Trail is without a doubt the most famous trek in South America and is considered as one of the 5 top hiking journeys on the planet. The four day trek to Machu Picchu combines the impressive scenery of the Andes in Peru, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and a breathtaking blend of Inca stones pavement, archaeological ruins and tunnels. The 45km trek is usually covered in 4 days, arriving at Machu Picchu at daybreak on the final day before returning to Cusco by train in the afternoon. Inca Trail Tours are rated moderate and any reasonably fit person should be able to cover the route, however it is challenging.
Included in the price of Inca Trail tours are Transfer Out / In private service in Cusco, professional English speaking guides, full equipment, (you will need to rent your own sleeping bag), breakfast, lunch and dinner, cooks and porters, and many other amenities.
This is a really special experience and one that will be remembered forever.
