Natural beauty

4 days of sweating, hurting and suffering. I can say that it's all worth it. Seeing things of natural beauty. This is an experience I will never forget. Sleeping in tents, walking through the rain, getting extremely cold and extremely hot.
What a amazing trip with such a nice group and guide. And then the porters, they have earned ... Continue Reading

A nice stroll in the hills

A really enjoyable trek with great porters, an excellent cook and our friendly and knowledgeable guide, Ronnie. Woken up with coca tea each morning by the friendly porters, we set out on the Trail with a good breakfast inside.
We could go as fast or slow as we pleased (within reason). Everyone made it back safe, sound and happy. ... Continue Reading

Humming birds fly to quickly !

January turned out to be a nice month for doing the Inca Trail, no nasty bites, sunshine through the day but rain at night which was fine as your tucked up in your tent before 9 pm after the early start on the trek. The scenery was fantastic all around you, the flora was amazing, so many different colors in ... Continue Reading

Como en Holanda decimos: pijn is fijn

Pijn is fijn: el dolor es un gusto. El Camino del Inca no es fácil, es un viaje de 4 días en el que sufres. Subiendo montañas, bajando escaleras, duchas frías y dormir en carpas con colchones finos.
Tuvimos lluvias de vez en cuando que a veces nos refrescaban y a veces nos daban mucho frío. Pero la felicidad ... Continue Reading

The biggest rewarding

The trip itself is a great experience. Definitely something everybody should do. Amazing views all along the trail. Sometimes it gets a bit hard, mostly because of the height. But you don't need to be a real hiker to make it to Machu Picchu !
One thing must be said though, it does give you a weird feeling seeing ... Continue Reading

Highly recommended

As soon as I signed up to do the Inca Trail I couldn't wait to start it. Every day was as described to us in our briefing and it did not disappoint.
Day two was the biggest challenge but a great sense of achievement once completed. Very early start on day 4 but it just adds to the anticipation ... Continue Reading

Great experience

The Inca Trail was challenging but I really enjoyed it. The second day was the toughest, physically, especially the incline just before the summit. It feels very rewarding to complete it. We were well prepared on what to expect from our guide. Our guide was very helpful with all our questions and had great knowledge on the history of Machu ... Continue Reading

No rain no pain

Just finished a 3 night 4 day trek with Inca Trail Reservations and loved every bit of it. It is certainly tough and should not be taken on lightly but unlike a lot of treks the history along keeps you impelled and intrigued. You have to be very careful on the trek in rainy season as the path becomes very ... Continue Reading

A personal experience

It all started with a briefing on the night before the hike to inform us the requirements and the plan for the trip. After signing the disclaimer I must admit it was a little scary thinking of all the things that could possibly go wrong. However, Victor re-assured us that if we take our time and keep focused everything will ... Continue Reading

Overwhelming sceneries

The Machu Picchu trip was tiring bonding, thrilling and very satisfying. I've done different trips in different countries, but the sceneries I've seen here were overwhelming. The feeling of ending a trip well organized with our guides, porters and cook and the friends made on the way is great.
Coming home twice a day in the tent set up ... Continue Reading
