About this trip

 Review


The Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the most popular trek in all of Peru, this sacred trail is full of a lot of history and is part of what it used to be in the time of the Inca empire. This 26-mile trail is the only way to access Machu Picchu directly after 3 amazing treks in the Andes of Peru. It is the most controlled hike in Peru. Walk permits, controlled by the government, can only be purchased by licensed operators.

This hike has a duration of 5D/4N, ideal for people who want to go at a more leisurely pace, to have a better enjoyment and have more time exploring the ruins, it is an option for people who want to enjoy more of the Inca trail.


The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous trekking routes in the world and just one example of the approximate 40000 kilometres of roads built by the Incas some 500 years ago! Inca roads were built across the deserts, highlands and jungles stretching from Colombia in the north to Chile in the south! The Traditional or Classic Inca Trail tour starts in the Sacred Valley  and finishes in a jungle region going through a range of vegetation types in route.  The Classic Inca Trail trek is a once in a lifetime experience, never to be forgotten.

Distance: 43KM/26 Miles

IMPORTANT

The Ministry of Culture in Peru is in charge of all regulations of the Inca Trail, including permits and campsites. To enter the Inca Trail, you must have a permit that matches your NAME, PASSPORT NUMBER, NATIONALITY, and AGE issued by the Ministry of Culture. Only licensed Inca Trail tour operators can secure these, and they are not transferable in date or name at any time. If you are unable to start your Inca Trail trek on your start date, you can not transfer to another person. If you need to change your start date, you will need to make sure permits still exist for the new date and purchase a new permit. These are all rules of the government of Peru that we need to follow.


If permits are sold out for your desired start date, there are lots of other roads that lead to Machu Picchu. We can help you find the perfect trek for you.
