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

Machu Picchu was connected with the Inca city of Cusco and the rest of the Inca Empire by trails of excellent design in strict and perfect harmony with the natural Andean environment. 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 adventure 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.

Very important to reserve early for 2018

Distribution of Machu Picchu trekking permits for 2018 will begin early October. It is known that tickets for the months of April, May and June can sell out in hours of going on sale.

If thinking about the 4 days hiking trip to Machu Picchu in 2018, it is very important to book well in advance. We guarantee your Inca Trail ticket or you get a full refund.
