The Inca Trail is without doubt one of the world's greatest walks and as such should be relished, not rushed! We invite you to join us on our extended version of this iconic trek, which includes 4 additional days hiking in the peaceful Silque Valley and across the stunning Ancascocha Pass (4625m), where we are likely to encounter few other trekkers, before joining up with the classic Inca Trail and entering Machu Picchu via the iconic ‘Sun Gate’. In 7 days of walking we will cross high passes, follow stone pathway created by the Incas over four centuries ago and enjoy tremendous views of spectacular forested valleys and of the snow-capped peaks of the Vilcabamba, like the mighty Salkantay (6271m). Extending our time in the mountains also helps to ensure that we are well acclimatised by the time we join the Inca Trail meaning that we can enjoy every step and really make it a walk to remember. Before our hike we will enjoy time exploring the vibrant and colourful ancient Inca capital of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Incas, with 2 days of sightseeing and acclimatisation including visits to the fortresses at Sacsayhuaman and at Ollantaytambo. With blue glacial lakes, cloud forest, orchids, hummingbirds, magnificent Inca settlements and stone-paved trails, there is no other short trek in the world that offers such a variety of experiences. This is the Inca Trail for trekking aficionados!
