Peru is one of the most fascinating countries in South America and, with its breathtaking landscapes, stunning scenery and mysterious Inca sites, it's home to one of the most famous footpaths in the world – the Inca trail.
Your adventure begins in the Inca capital of Cusco – a fascinating city, full of colonial charm hidden deep in the Andes. At an altitude of 3,200m, you will spend your first day acclimatising by taking a trek around the famous Inca sites surrounding Cusco. You will then set off to trek the Inca trail leading to Machu Picchu through the majestic sun gate, and then onto the fascinating ruins of Machu Picchu – the world’s most important archaeological find and one of the new seven wonders of the world.
This classic Inca trail encompasses three high mountain passes – the highest being 4,200m. The four-day trek will be tough but well worthwhile as you witness the sight of Machu Picchu through the sun gate and breathtaking views across the Andes.
