About this tour

This is the bout you’ve been waiting for: You vs the Inca Trail. Limber up in Lima, then fly to Cusco for acclimatization. Spend four days hard slogging it up South America’s most celebrated trek and be rewarded with a Machu Picchu sunrise. But don’t stress, your local support crew will feed you up with lollies, fruit and sugary drinks to help keep the demons at bay. It's a bout that includes lots of uphill battles, fancy footwork and sweat, but don't worry, you've got this.You’ll be camping with very basic, shared facilities along the Inca Trail (where there are drop toilets and no showers). This is all part of the adventure of being among nature.While hiking the 4 Day Inca Trail or 3 Day Inca Quarry trail portion of this trip you may be joined by some travellers over the age of 29.We’ll be experiencing a mix of hot and cold climates, so pack accordingly and bring layers. It’s important to wear sunscreen and other sun protection, and always drink plenty of water.This trip involves a lot of hiking and walking, so requires a moderate level of fitness. There are a few different trail options to suit your interests and physical capabilities. Please bring durable footwear suitable to hiking. See the ‘Packing’ section of the Essential Trip Information for more details.Due to the high altitude of many of places we visit some people can suffer altitude sickness. Some people aren’t affected at all, but if you are, be sure to drink plenty of water and don’t push yourself too hard. If possible, arrive a few days early to allow yourself time to acclimatise. Please see the ‘Medical and health information’ section of the Essential Trip Information for more important details about altitude sickness.Travellers who choose different ways of reaching Machu Picchu (Inca Trail, Quarry Trail or Train), will not follow the same routes within Machu Picchu. This means that you may not be able to have photos together, overlooking Machu Picchu. This applies to travellers on the same booking or separate bookings.
