5 DAYS 4 NIGHTS: Giving you, more time to enjoy Machu Picchu. All along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, spellbinding mountain scenery, unforgettable Inca sites, and a cornucopia of flowers and humming birds await you. Stroll down the Royal Road into Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas! Many of our returning passengers tell us they found the trek more strenuous and challenging than they had anticipated. During four hiking days you cover about 28 miles, starting at 8,400’ and finishing at 7,860’ above sea level. You must cross two high passes, with a maximum elevation of 13,776’. While trail conditions are generally good, and indeed the condition of centuries-old Inca paving stones is astonishing, some steep trail sections require careful footing and good hiking boots with lug soles. Nevertheless, thanks to our careful pacing, dedicated guides and professional support staff, our Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is suitable for novices as well as experienced hikers. Porters carry the heavy gear; you walk carrying only a day-pack. Cooks prepare wholesome meals from fresh ingredients and handle all the kitchen chores. You sleep warm and protected in high quality tents. Join the most reliable outfitter in the Andes.
