Reaching the end of the trail and the long awaited Machu Picchu itself ... Continue Reading

King of the mountains

I've just come back from an epic 4 day adventure on the Inca Trail. My parents had done the trek 25 years ago and really struggled, so I was a little apprehensive going into it. However I thoroughly enjoyed the walking and loved going at a fast pace.
Reaching the summit on day 2 was a particular highlight. The ... Continue Reading

A great 4 days on the Inca Trail, tough but great! The food was excellent, the guide both funny and informative and the group was a good mix of age and ability.

Una experiencia para toda la vida

Sin duda lo vivido en este tour serán experiencias para recordar toda la vida.
Antes de todo aclarar alguna cosa, si buscas algo relajado, si no te apetece nada de esfuerzo físico, eres especial con la comida y quieres todo comodidad esto no es lo que estás buscando. Si por el contrario buscas contacto con la naturaleza, tener una ... Continue Reading

Machu Pisco 14

After not knowing at all what to expect about the Inca Trail or the company we booked with, I couldn't asked for anything more. Everything from our group size to the food we were given was perfect.
After three days of tough trekking, finally on day four the view was spectacular, and fairly emotional. All the exhaustion, early mornings ... Continue Reading

Adventure Machupichu style

First day was awesome! I felt strong, I felt unstoppable! But Pachamama had something to say about that... the second day I was humbled by altitude sickness. At the top of the pass, the highest point of the trail, I began to feel nauseated and definitely no longer strong or unstoppable.
Somehow, with the support and encouragement of my ... Continue Reading

Machu Picchu Peru 2014

Inca Trail Reservations did a great job preparing us for this trip. Their packing list was very accurate considering the variable weather conditions and it would allow for light enough packing to trek with your own bag. However, as Inca Trail would recommend, it makes the trip way more enjoyable if you hire a porter to carry your gear for ... Continue Reading
