Summary of The Day: There are no scheduled activities on the first day of the tour. On arrival please ask reception when the pre-departure meeting will be held.
Summary of The Day: Today's itinerary is devoted to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. First we'll visit the Pisac ruins, perched on a hilltop with incredible views of the surrounding mountains, then go down to the traditional market of the same name, full of color and atmosphere, and a great place to buy a souvenir or two. After lunch, we'll continue along the valley to the temple-fortress of Ollantaytambo with its enormous Inca terracing constructed on the side of a steep mountain.
Summary of The Day: Our trek begins after a short bus journey and the first day is a relatively easy, 4½ hour, 8-mile walk.
The Inca were a highly organised civilization and made many paths throughout the Andes in a network they called Qhapaq Nan. The most famous of them all is known simply as Camino Inca or the Inca Trail, the royal route to the remnants of the breathtaking mountaintop city of Machu Picchu. On our four-day, 27-mile trek we'll cross three high passes and encounter numerous archaeological sites, culminating at the citadel of Machu Picchu. There are few treks in the world that combine natural beauty, history and mystery with such an awe-inspiring final destination.
The Inca Trail Trek can be demanding but easily accomplished by those leading a reasonably active life - you certainly don't need to be an athlete. Everyone is able to walk at their own pace and there is no rush to finish. The trekking group is led by an expert local guide and supported by a team of porters and cooks, leaving you with only a small day pack to carry. If you are in any doubt or if you have any condition that may affect your ability to trek, we advise that you consult your doctor. Before embarking on our epic trek we'll have a briefing to prepare for the next few days and an early morning departure.
Summary of The Day: Today will be your biggest challenge as we reach the highest pass at Warmiwanusca (13,780 feet), which translates to Dead Woman's Pass. We'll cover approximately 5.5 miles in 5 to 7 hours. After the high pass it's all downhill as the trail winds its way along old Inca stairs to our campsite.
Summary of The Day: On Day 5 we'll pass the ruins of Runkurakay, Sayacmarca and Phuyupatamarca, walking approximately 9 miles in seven hours.
Summary of The Day: On the last morning of our trek, after an overnight stop at Winay-Wayna, we'll break camp early for the final stretch to Machu Picchu, greeting daybreak over the famous Sun Gate. There will then be time to explore on your own or simply take in the magnificence of the place after your guided tour.
The Lost City of Machu Picchu was completely self-contained, surrounded by agricultural terraces whose crops sustained the entire population. Located high above the fast flowing Urubamba River, the ruins consist of palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation that will simply take your breath away.
The ruins were only discovered by the outside world in 1911, when American explorer Hiram Bingham found them while looking for another lost city called Vilcabamba. Due to their isolation many of the buildings are still quite intact and you can't help but admire Huayna Picchu (Young Mountain), which towers above the ruins. After spending most of the day at Machu Picchu you'll have the chance to meander through the markets before enjoying a scenic train ride back to the Sacred Valley where our transfer to Cusco will be waiting.
Summary of The Day: Your adventure of a lifetime comes to an end today. If you have a late flight or have lengthened your stay by adding post tour accommodation you will have more time to explore the sights.
