There are a range of options to follow in the footsteps of ancient Incas on a spectacular trek to Machu Picchu.

Completing the four day Inca trek is, without doubt, one of the most rewarding and defining experiences afforded to travellers anywhere in the world. Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Inca people, who themselves traversed the very same high altitude passes and steep climbs, en route to the lost city of Machu Picchu. The 24 miles trail passes over 30 Inca sites and affords astonishing views of agricultural terraces, dramatic mountains, grassy plains, mysterious cloudforests and sweeping valleys. Each weary step brings you closer to the final destination; sunrise at Intipunku, the sun gate overlooking Machu Picchu and the biggest feeling of satisfaction, achievement and comradery you might ever feel.

The trail is rugged and steep in places, crossing a pass of 4,200 metres above sea level, trekking at this altitude can be tough requiring acclimatisation and fitness.
