Never Again!!! Just Kidding

Upon arrival to 82km, we knew there was no turning back. Our guides, Marco and Andrea were extremely knowledgable, friendly, and funny!.
We successfully conquered Dead Woman's Pass and the "Gringo Killer" and were able to visit six Inca sites on our third day, which Marco said was something not many accomplish (although he was probably just ... Continue Reading

Pachamama

The start of the Inca trail was only 4 days ago but it seems such a long time ago. We've all seen so much and had a great experience.
The whole experience has been absolutely amazing and there is no way to explain this but to do it!! Our guides Marco and Andreas have been such great encouragement throughout ... Continue Reading

Inka Trail with Marco and andrea

Booking directly with the company was very easy, although some key information was lost in translation during the briefing session.
I reccomend doing some extra research in regards to packing and weather expectations. However, Marco and Andrea were wonderful tour guides that completely made up for the less than ideal planning experience. At the beginning of the trip, they ... Continue Reading

The chaskis were amazing, the food was delicious and impressive for the conditions. The tents held ... Continue Reading

Do you see the Salkantay mountain?

Salkantay trek was very diverse, with a lot of different sceneries, which was great and very rewarding.
Though, to be honest, I expected it to be a bit more adventurous, meaning less commercialized with more remote camping sites and less touristic paths; without cars or industrial activity. The first two days were quite challenging and the trek to ... Continue Reading

Freezing and sweaty in one day.

Our group of three started the trek full of energy. Everything was well arranged before hand while still in our home country, and as well on our first day. The breakfast at Mollepata was terrible. The first hike until the camp is easy going and shows nice fauna.
The hike to the lake is very tough. It is super ... Continue Reading

Don’t get run over by a Porter

First of all, it was a pleasure working with Inca Trail Reservations (ITR) on customizing my visit to Perú. While other agencies wanted to sell me a package, ITR worked with me on meeting my needs.
Walking the Inca Trail in my mid-sixties was not an easy thing but it was worth every step of the way ... Continue Reading

Gorge really told interesting stories about the Inca culture, made amazing photos of us and helped us with everything during the 4 days of hiking. The ... Continue Reading

The Inca trail is an amazing adventure. All the beautiful Inca ruïnes you cross and the dead woman's pass are truly amazing.
With in the end of course the ancient Macchu Picchu. I fell in love with this place. Our guide Jorge explained a lot about the history of Peru, about the old legends and about the ... Continue Reading

Alive Woman Standing

The Inca Trail has been an absolutely incredible, once in a lifetime experience. We've seen all kinds of weather, from dry scorching sun to freezing mountain winds to downpours in the rainforest.
We've seen llamas and exotic birds and flowers. And we've seen the greatest heroes of them all - our amazing porters, chefs and guides, run past us ... Continue Reading

Inca trail for Ever

A trilha é emocionante! Paisagens muito bonitas. No primeiro dia a trilha é mais aberta, consequentemente com mais sol.
O segundo dia é bem difícil, muita subida com escadas quando já não se tem fôlego por causa da altitude, e muita descida no final do dia exigindo muito dos joelhos e tornozelos. O terceiro dia amanheceu chovendo, com ... Continue Reading
