World famous Inca trail to Machu Picchu, South America's best hiking experience

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, crossing the Andes mountain range and sections of the Peruvian jungle and rainforest. Our amazing Inca Trail Tour passes several well-preserved Inca ruins and settlements before ending at the "Gate of the Sun" on Machu Picchu Mountain.

If you have decided to hike the inca trail to Machu Picchu, please keep in mind that the daily number of people accessing the trail is restricted and a government-issued inca trail trekking permit is required. Please check availability of permits before booking the Inca Trail hiking tour.
