Trek the classic Inca Trail
At a glance
5 nights hotels in en suite rooms, 3 nights full-service camping with dining and toilet tents
An iconic trek, following in the footsteps of the Peruvian Incas
Offering an unrivalled combination of history and dramatic scenery, the ancient Inca Trail winds its way from the powerful Urubamba River, across mountain passes and through cloud forests, passing several crumbling fortresses before reaching the lost city of Machu Picchu. This fabled trail is specifically designed to maximise the time spent at Machu Picchu with an early morning tour of the ruins, quieter at that hour before the crowds of day trippers and other trekkers arrive. (Alternative remote Moonstone trek available when Inca Trail permits have sold out).

Accommodation details
Hotels & Camping
We spend five nights in small locally owned hotels with en suite bathrooms and breakfast facilities. All of the hotels we use in Cuzco are located within walking distance of the central Plaza de Armas.

During the trek we spend three nights full-service camping, meaning that our camp staff will erect and dismantle the tents, cook, and do all camp chores for you: you need only carry your day pack. There will also be dining and toilet tents and bowls of warm water are provided both morning and evening for washing with.

We recommend the early booking of single supplements and of pre/post-tour accommodation. Single accommodation (including tents) can be arranged for a supplement from GB£165, subject to availability. Please request this at the time of booking.

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes
