An Incan adventure
Follow the footpaths of the Incas to the roof of the Andes, passing ancient Tambo ruins, and breathing in pure mountain air by the lungful. While it is physically demanding, the 40km (25 mile) hike remains within the reach of most reasonably fit travellers. Some parts are steep, especially the three high passes – one of which reaches an elevation of 4,200m (13,776 ft)! The end is appropriately nicknamed the “Sun Gate”, where mist-shrouded views of Machu Picchu prove to all who make it that the climb was definitely worth it.

Where is the Inca Trail located?
The Inca trail is located in the heart of Peru, South America. Regarded as one of the greatest hikes in the world, the Trail meanders through an area where the snowy Andes Mountain range meets the Amazon jungle.
How hard is the Inca Trail?
The Inca Trail hikes are regarded as moderate, so if you’re relatively fit you should have no problems whatsoever. However, as the trek reaches altitudes of more than 13,000 feet we’d recommend arriving in the village a day or two before your tour to acclimatise. We offer a number of Inca Trail tours for all levels of ability and budgets.
When is the best time to trek the Inca Trail?
The warm and dry conditions of August and September are generally regarded as peak times for holidaymakers and travellers. We recommend trekking the Inca Trail in July or October when it’s less busy but still fairly warm.
