Trek Peru - Inca Trail

10 April 2018 to 19 April 2018

Machu Picchu 

This spectacular ten-day challenge includes six days of trekking and camping along one of the most iconic trails in the world, leading you to the mystifying ruins of Machu Picchu.

Beginning in the city of Cusco, you’ll experience impressive colonial architecture, cobbled streets, and explore the ruins of Saksayhuaman.

Along the Inca Trail and the banks of the mighty Urubamba River, you will climb the Inca’s ancient stone steps that lead towards the Andes. On day 5, you will see spectacular views from the notorious Dead Woman’s Pass at 4,270 m.

Then you will spend your final day exploring the incredible sights of the lost city and UNESCO World Heritage site of Machu Picchu itself.
