Head to Peru and experience one of the most famous treks in South America, rated by many as one of the top five treks in the world. The 26 mile Inca Trail Trek combines beautiful mountain scenery, lush cloud forest and fascinating Inca ruins and tunnels. The crowning glory of the Inca Trail is, of course, the infamous and stunningly beautiful Machu Picchu.

The Inca Trail isn't the only trek you can do to Machu Picchu, read our Machu Picchu trekking guide for details of some of Peru's lesser-known but equally incredible hikes.
Begin your day in Lima, Peru's bustling capital city. Enjoy a half-day city tour, which will include a visit to one of Lima’s main squares and oldest Cathedrals. With the rest of your time in the capital, we would highly recommend discovering the thriving gastronomic scene at one of Lima’s many restaurants.
After your morning tour in Lima, you will fly down to Cusco where, on your second day, you will enjoy a tour of the city and its surroundings visiting the Cathedral and Inca sites such as Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.
Today your Inca Trail adventure begins. You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to kilometre 82 where the trail begins. The 26-mile hike takes three nights and four days, and along the way, you will stay at local campsites. Accompanied by a guide and porters, there are lots of points of interest along the way and amazing viewpoints to make a stop at.
The final day of the trek is very much the climax to your Inca trail adventure. Your last day will start before sunrise where you will make your way up to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu, where, clouds allowing, you might be able to see the sunrise over the citadel. The rest of the morning is then spent taking a guided tour through the citadel before taking the train back to Cusco.
