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

I went on the Salkantay trek rather than the classic Inca Trail due to unforeseen reasons. I was disappointed at first but thank goodness the Salkantay 4d/3n package took me to some breathtaking places.
Guide Ramiro was friendly, approachable, informative and had near perfect English ! He gave us plenty of throughout the trek... Without it probably would have ... Continue Reading

The only downsides were that I would've preferred ... Continue Reading
