The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

10 Day Private Camping Trek to Machu Picchu

On this private adventure in the Andes, you'll trek the legendary Inca trail over five days to the ancient city in the sky of Machu Picchu, arriving via the Inti Punku (Sun Gate). The footpaths and cobbled ways you'll walk on were handbuilt by the Incas over 500 years ago. Discover Quechua life in the Andes and explore Inca stone temples and monuments in Cusco, the Sacred Urubamba Valley and on this ancient pilgrimage to Machu Picchu. 

Traverse breathtaking high alpine passes, enjoy lush valleys, wonder at the birdlife in the dense cloud forests, and cross over rushing rivers on stone and log footbridges. On your way to camp each day, you'll pass through ancient Andean settlements and each night, your team of porters and skilled cooks will have a delicious meal and comfortable camp awaiting your arrival. Comfort camping means a large tent, deluxe mattress on your own cot, a hot shower tent, a masseuse, and delicious cuisine along the way. Our camps are located away from the crowds and add an extra day to minimize overcrowding on this extremely popular route.

Before you trek, you'll enjoy a night in Cusco and one in the Sacred Valley, the heart of the Incan Empire. This region is an amazing place steeped in history, culture, and tradition and the perfect place to acclimate to the Andes before beginning your trek.

Perfect for families, couples, and friends alike, this is the private Peru and Machu Picchu trekking and camping adventure that you have always dreamed of.
