Inca Trail to Machu Picchu October 2018

Friday, 19th October 2018, Machu Picchu, Peru

Discover Machu Picchu and join our team of intrepid adventurers as they cross the high Peruvian Andes to the Lost City of the Incas!

Our trek departs from the bustling mountain town of Cusco and winds its way through breath-taking mountain passes, sacred mountains and jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu - one of the most beautiful and enigmatic sites in the world! 

The mountain passes are steep and high (over 4,000m) and with several hours of trekking a day, you’ll need to be in good physical shape. But the rewards will be more than worthwhile as trekking Machu Picchu is the experience of a lifetime.

From history of Cuzco, to the ruins of Runkurakay, the Urubamba river right through to the suburbs of Miraflores - this once in a lifetime journey is not to be missed. You can find a full itinerary of the trip by clicking here.
