Your chance to
Trek the famous Inca Trail
At a glance
4 days point-to-point walking with full porterage
This tour combines the best-known trek in the Americas with a taste of Peru's diverse landscapes and cultures. Lake Titicaca’s waters lie adorned with floating reed islands inhabited by indigenous groups, while the barren coastal deserts and their mysterious lines of ancient Nazca civilisations continue to fascinate visitors. Cuzco is the ideal base for archaeological discovery and for embarking on the spectacular Inca Trail trek to the imposing citadel of Machu Picchu.

Alternative Moonstone Trek also available - please see Holiday Style (below).

Hotels & Camping
You will spend eleven nights in locally run hotels, with en suite rooms and breakfast facilities. 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. Inflatable Thermarest style sleeping mats are provided. There will also be dining and toilet tents and bowls of warm water are provided both morning and evening for washing with.

Single rooms and tents can be booked throughout for an optional single supplement from GBP320, subject to availability at the time of booking. We recommend the early booking of single supplements, and of pre and post tour accommodation.

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
