In Peru there are many routes that lead to Machu Picchu, but none of them is quite like the Inca Trail. The most famous pathway in the Americas.
After flying from the capital of Peru, Lima, to Cusco, which you explore along with other ancient Inca sites in the Sacred Valley, you begin a four-day odyssey high in the Andes. Crossing forests and thick mists, climbing thousand-year-old stone steps and discovering the sites of ruined Inca fortresses and cities, while enjoying majestic views.
The reward comes with the first, exciting sighting of Machu Picchu from the Inti Punku. This is followed by a tour of the citadel itself. This guided route is a unique experience, which you will treasure forever. Groups vary in size, but are typically made up of about 6-10 travelers.
