Inca Trail Treks

The Inca Trail is the most awe-inspiring trek in the Americas. Along its 44km length of Inca road, you’ll come across different archaeological sites, breathtaking views of towering glaciated mountains, inter Andean valleys, and semi-tropical forests. Microclimates ranging from cold mountain passes to temperate high jungle await you with all their flora and fauna.

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with the vestiges of an ancient society, much of which still survives intact in archaeological sites, trails, bridges and the rural population of Peru. Discovering its mystique and ancestral culture along this trail is a great accomplishment.

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is voted one of the top 10 Treks in the World and this 5 day version covers 43 kilometers and visits mysterious Inca cities surrounded breath taking mountainous landscape and thriving cloud forest rich in Andean flora and fauna. The 5-day trek is an excellent alternative to avoid the crowds found on the 4-day classic trek and to reach quieter, more distant campsites. It is also recommended for families with children and mature adults, as the daily walking distance is shorter than the 4-day version. The legendary Inca Trail takes you through the diverse wilderness of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary, passing numerous Inca ruins on the stone path before descending to the World Famous Machu Picchu.

Great Tour, Team and Guide Pretty much a perfect experience that far exceeded expectations. The porters were excellent & friendly with great service. The quality of the meals (3 courses while on a mountaintop) were better than most restaurants. Our guide Koko was perfect. He knew about all subjects but also let us dictate the journey. Most importantly he gave great insight to the cultural & spiritual aspects of the Inca. We all were really happy and noticed that the trip became personalized for our small & fast group rather than being a forced template. Can’t recommend enough! 💙

ORANGE NATION / Sam travel / Jhony We did the 4 day Inca Trail with tour guide Jhony to Machu Picchu, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. His knowledge of the ruins along the trial and his experience in my Opinion is unmatched. This tour was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only was his expertise helpful but I consider him to be a new friend of mine. I would take any hike or Tavel experience with this gentleman again. 10/10 experience with this entire crew and would book again with Orange nation in an instant. Jhony was amazing. If you’re looking for an amazing experience and a guide who is knowledgeable, book with Orange nation and tour guide Jhony.

Experience of a lifetime We did the traditional 4 day Inca trail hike & it exceeded our already high expectations. Our guide Jhony was super knowledgeable and friendly and helped to create a bond between our group from the very beginning. The food was incredible and varied & their were plenty of little touches that made our trip even more special. It was my first multi day hike and although it was challenging, sam travel / orange nation made the journey as comfortable, relaxing, and fun as possible. Highly recommend!!

Awesome Experience Orange Nation did an excellent job of covering all of the details of my daughter and my 2 day trek on August 5&6, 2021 for what we felt was an affordable price. Our Andean guide, Liz, spoke English well and was informative in explaining historical, cultural and spiritual aspects of the ancient native people. We were inspired and awestruck by the the beauty of this trek! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Inolvidable Lares Trek ¡Pero que feliz me siento..! Una de los momentos más inolvidable en mi vida fue en el Tour de Lares Trek ,gracias a la recomendación de algunos amigos que ya habían tenido la experiencia de viajar con Orange Nation. Y si…! Orange Nation fue muy responsable desde mi recojo para el Tour , siempre mostraron ese profesionalismo que mis amigos me contaron y también me di cuenta de eso, como también el gran equipo que nos acompañó en el tour , Nuestro cocinero fue el mejor , preparaba la mejor comida que jamás había probado antes. Y el Guía quien fue muy divertido durante todo el camino hasta el fin del viaje, siempre estaba al pendiente de nosotros y eso me hacía sentir feliz. Pase momentos únicos que aún no puedo olvidarlos y cada vez que lo recuerdo me siento feliz, la experiencia con Orange Nation es la razón de todo eso. Me brindaron un gran servicio que no lo había esperado, pero me sorprendieron. Son los mejores, ¡súper recomiendo!

El Mejor Viaje Mi familia y Yo realizamos un pequeño viaje a Perú (Cusco) donde teníamos planeado visitar y sentir esa magnífica felicidad de estar en una de las maravillas del mundo “Machu Picchu”. Pues no fue fácil, ya que primero tuvimos que sentirnos bien con la altura ya que le afecto un poco a mi Esposa, pero eso no fue un problema para que se lleve a cabo nuestros planes. Por suerte encontramos a Orange Nation, una Agencia muy profesional y sobretodo responsable. Orange Nation se encargó de todo para que mi viaje sea el mejor, nos ofrecieron el tour de (Cusco- Machu Picchu) de dos días. Me encantó la idea ya que no nos sentíamos muy bien así que el primer día visitamos el Famoso Valle Sagrado de los Incas, un Lugar muy tranquilo y lleno de tradición donde podrás contemplar la naturaleza y también hermosas vistas de los diferentes pueblos que se encuentran en el camino. Nuestro Guía fue el mejor, durante todo el viaje fue muy profesional y cuidadoso, siempre cuidaba de nosotros y eso nos hacía sentir seguros. El segundo día fue el mejor, por fin pudimos estar en la Maravilla del Mundo “Machu Picchu” nos sentimos súper felices y muy emocionados, al fin pudimos cumplir uno de nuestro grandes sueños, pero también me siento muy feliz por haber elegido a Orange Nation. Nos sentimos muy agradecidos con ellos por el excelente servicio que nos dio y solo hay una palabra para eso “profesionalismo” y ellos lo tienen,solo decir una vez más Gracias. Súper recomendado.
