Salkan-crazy

Awesome trip. Unlike anything I've ever seen before, you spend two days in high elevation with beautiful views of Humantay and Salkantay mountain. After that, you descend into the jungle climate and your surroundings take a 180. You hike through lush forests full of different plants and flowers with hummingbirds all around.
Highly recommend, very challenging but also ... Continue Reading

Take a wander through the clouds

My experience on the Salkantay tour was incredible ! I highly recommend it to anyone. The trail takes us through a variety of geological landscapes and terrain. We started in the alpine, a wide open valley surrounded by the biggest mountains I've ever seen (and I'm from the Canadian Rockies !) The Salkantay range is unreal and beyond beautiful.

Como se dice awesome ?

This experience was absolutely one of a kind. After having traveled to various locations throughout the world, there are few places that compare to the beauty of hiking the Inca Trail. Furthermore, I have never experienced such exceptional service as our team from Inca Trail Reservations.
Our trail guide (Americo) ensured we were well aware of our plan for ... Continue Reading

Perusing around Inca style

Hola ! This trek was truly amazing. There is absolutely no substitute for arriving to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate after four days of exploring the many ruins along the Inca Trail.

Awesome Inca adventure

We had a great time with Inca Trail Reservations. I would book again in a second. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and our porters and cook were very caring and welcoming. We were able to enjoy the trail at our own pace with the luxury of having meals and campsites prepared for us. They covered every detail of the trip, ... Continue Reading

The well organised trip and the good equipment ... Continue Reading

Non crowded trek

I strongly recommend to do this tour if you are looking for a very interesting and physically demanding tour outside the huge number of travelers that are taking the better known but much easier Inca Trail.
On the tour through different climate conditions and vegetation you learn about the big differences in the landscape and temperatures. As you hike ... Continue Reading
