Overview

Book
This exciting adventure allows surprising comfort along the ancient Inca trail called the Salkantay Inca Trail, the road less traveled to the lost city of the Incas. Discover a world surrounded by magical moments while experiencing Peru's real outdoors and its rugged elements. Each days trek ends in one of four cozy lodges with hot showers, gourmet food, outdoor jacuzzis and highly personalized service by local staff.

Important Peru Hiking Information

Trekking in the High Andes takes a toll on the average person, which is why previous high-elevation hiking is recommended for this adventure. Although the level of exertion is only moderately strenuous overall, the minimum trekking portion of the trip is spread over four days and involves 27 miles of hiking at elevations between 6,600 and 15,000 feet on steep and rocky trails and stone paved Inca paths. Although there is also a 4-mile acclimatization trek from Soraypampa to Humantay Lake and back, it is a good idea to come prepared with proper elevation sickness medicine, which can be prescribed by your local doctor prior to your trip. An additional 2 days and 16 miles of trekking is offered in the itinerary but these distances can either be omitted or a portion completed by vehicle. This trip is not recommended for people who have a fear of heights or children under the age of 12 years. We’ll share the Salcantay route with native Peruvian farmers who are commonly seen using these trails for transporting goods and livestock. You’ll pass by mountaintop vista terraces with gauchos wearing hand-woven ponchos, climb to the ruins at Machu Picchu, and explore the fitted stone beauty of a variety of Incan ruins along the way. Good physical fitness is required.

SC from Alabama  

They were incredibly helpful in preparing for this trip. They made sure we had everything in order prior to our departure. The Peru trek was incredible. We saw so many sights, learned a lot about Incan history, and went through more ecosystems than I can count. Originally we thought the trek was a little expensive, but after 3-course meals at lunch and dinner EVERY DAY, fabulous accomodations, flawless logistics including bus tickets, train tickets, vans, additional tours, etc, it was absolutely, no question about it, worth it.
