Trekking the Inca Trail and then arriving at the Sun Gate above the 15th Century Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the outstanding highlights of any visit to Peru. We begin this superb 8-day walking holiday with two vital acclimatisation days where we explore Cusco and the Sacred Valley - the former capital of both the Inca Empire and Spanish colonial government. In the company of like-minded travellers from around the world, we then set off on the Inca Trail, the famous ancient paved pathway of the Incas, trekking from the Urubamba River to a high point at the Warmiwanusca Pass (4200m), before descending to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu. Averaging 10 kilometres of walking on each of 4 days this brilliant fully supported short trek provides us with spectacular views of the peaks of the Cordillera Vilcabamba. The holiday culminates in an early morning visit to Machu Picchu with a knowledgeable guide who will bring alive the history of the city of the Incas before we take the classic train ride back to Cusco. With 2 departures each week, we're sure we will have a trip to fit your busy schedule, but be quick! Inca Trail permits go on sale each year in January and permits for popular periods tend to sell out immediately. Book early to avoid disappointment.
