The strike that occurred at Santa Teresa made the trek a bit more difficult than anticipated but was no fault of the company and Carlos made every effort to work around the hardship ...

Ligeiro ao topo

Estava empolgado para trilhar o caminho Inca. O primeiro dia caminhei com bastante vontade. Parei somente para tirar fotos do incrivel rio Urubamba e seus vales. Percebi que o caminho entrava vale andentro. O final do dia foi um pouco cansativo mas chegamos bem ao acompamento e tívemos uma grande janta.
O segundo dia foi desafiante pelo fato de ... Continue Reading

The entire trek was awesome but strenuous. ... Continue Reading

My bucket list hike

The trail I took followed the traditional Inca Trail. It led me through a beautiful Urubamba River and a number of archaeological sites. The experience is unique. It is not only the views are breathtaking, but also the scale.
Another dimension of the hike is the high elevation of the trail. It goes from under 3,000 km up to ... Continue Reading

Unbelievable experience. So good, it was my second time on the Inca Trail and visiting Machu Picchu. Gerson, our guide, knows so much about the Incas, each site, and Machu Picchu itself. Our porters were amazing, set up all our tents, gave us hot tea and clean water each morning, and fed us the most incredible food.
This is ... Continue Reading

The company took great care of us: the food was amazing, the porters congenial and strong, and the guide knowledgeable and easy to get along with.
The best experience was ... Continue Reading
