Good times on Salkantay

We decided to do the Salkantay trek instead of the Inca Trail because it was supposedly much more of a challenge. And that turned out to be true.
The altitude gets to you much more than you would think. Most people in our group had trouble adjusting to the altitude and had headaches and such. Apart from ... Continue Reading

Ten More Minutes

It definitely was a challenge, but our guide made it the most enjoyable adventure I've been on.
The "family concept" our guide came up with kept everybody working as a team and the toughest parts of the trek were doable by everybody in our group. What can you say about the education our guide gave us on the trail, ... Continue Reading

Family Camping Trip

When I first signed up to trek the Inca Trail, I had no idea what I was in for. It was my first time to Peru, to South America at all, and from start to finish, Inca Trail Reservations made my trip smooth and relaxing. Mabel was efficient and helpful in answering questions, booking my hotel, and arranging rides from ... Continue Reading

Potatoes, Slowpokes, and Ruins Galore!

While this was one of the most challenging things, I have done, Inca Trail Reservations made it clear and easy. Aside from a somewhat hasty orientation, everything was well planned, and since there were a lot of cities and modes of transportation, that made it so much easier for us.
In terms of trek itself, I was ... Continue Reading

Snake Way

This was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life!. I have vertigo and during day three I was terrified; looking down the side of a mountain can take your breath away both figuratively and literally.
One portion of the trail reminded me of Snake Way from the Dragon Ball series and helped me ... Continue Reading

Pushing Past My Limits

Hiking the Inca Trail was an amazing experience. It pushed me to my limits but made me realize what I am capable of doing. Victor, our guide, was fantastic, supportive, funny, and passionate about Incan history. The cook and porters made the experience less rugged; the food was impressive and the porters were motivational as they ran past us with ... Continue Reading

Amazing Trip!

Wow. The Inca Trail has left me absolutely speechless. It was paced really well- getting to experience different environments each day while still covering several miles was awesome.
The first day got you acclimated for a rigorous and scenic hike up Dead Womans Pass on the second. The third day offered up a unique oppurtunity to hit ... Continue Reading

Never again!! 😉

Loved the guides and loved the inca trail. My favorite ruins were the Winaywayna. Machu Picchu was awesome but crowded.
I really liked the adventure of hiking to all these ruins that can only be reached through the inca trail. The food was way better than I expected to be eating on a hike, it actually felt ... Continue Reading

Very much enjoyed the trek. Every guide, porter, and the cook were really great. The meals especially were great both in food and being able to socialize with the guides and group members.
The best day was day 3 because of the amount of ruins and its relativo ease compares to the day before.

Höhen und Tiefen nicht nur im Sinne von Bergen

Der Salkantay ist ein wunderschöner Wanderweg zum Machu Pichu. Die ersten zwei Tage verliefen bestens, leider hatte mein Magen im zweiten Basiscamp etwas an der schönen Tour auszusetzen, sodass ich in der Nacht zum 3 Tag stark erleichtert wurde.
Starken Geistes bin ich am 3 Tag die 15 km mitgewandert und habe auf alle Essenseinheiten verzichtet, leider ... Continue Reading

You truly get a taste of the Peruvian culture. We were lucky enough to be blessed with an amazing guide, Jorge who was able to answer our questions and provide ... Continue Reading
