Inca Trail Tours to Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail is the most awe-inspiring trek in the South America. 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.

You also have the option to hike 1/3 of the Inca Trail, enjoy the unique flora and fauna this trail has to offer. Follow in the historic, world-renowned footsteps of the Incas before stepping through the Sun Gate for the most jaw dropping view of the ancient city of Machu Picchu.  Also, available is anything in between including the world famous 4-day Classic Inca Trail.

Do you want camping or hotels?

Multi day hikes, are essentially camping trips. Whereby you get to spend many days under the stars surrounded by llamas and Alpacas. Whilst enjoying the most breathtaking views of the snowcapped mountain peaks that surround you and indulging in delectable international and local food made by our outstanding chefs. Our equipment is high quality, with spacious tents and our very own private camping toilet for your convenience. During your shorter treks, hotel accommodation is included, with private hot showers, hotel breakfasts and the privacy and comfort of your own room.

Do you want a group or a private trip?

Each option has its own pros and cons. Group services allow you to meet fellow travelers, share travel stories and experiences. In a group service, we  put the general needs and interests of the group, so that everybody can have a memorable experience. However, our groups are small and guarantee to never exceed 8 people. We aim to take the needs of every individual into consideration as far as possible. On the other hand, for a truly personalized service, we recommend booking our private service. Only you and your group will be part of the group and individualized attention is guaranteed.

10/10 Amazing experience If you’re thinking about which agency to use, look no further- Ray and Jimmy went well above and beyond and made this a memorable, safe, fun, and professional experience.Ray is the most knowledgeable guide I’ve ever had in any country for any excursion - during both the Short Inka Trail and the actual tour of Machu Picchu, Ray’s expertise shined through in his ability to give us a detailed background on every aspect of the history, climate, nature, flora, animals.. anything! Likewise, Ray and Jimmy were truly the friendliest, kindest hosts that I could have imagined our group having. Thank you both so much and I will definitely book with you again if (when) I come back!

Short Inca Trial (2-Day) This tour was the perfect experience for our (group of 10) short trip to Peru. The trail was sometimes challenging, but the views and history made it all worth it. Ray and Jimmy were our guides and imparted sooo much knowledge about the history of Peru, Inca, and beyond. I would definitely recommend!

Machu Picchu and Inca Trail Hike My favorite part of the tour was certainly hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with Ray and Jimmy. We learned about the culture, the history, and shared some laughs along the way. I would definitely recommend bringing snacks and lots of water — it will slow to easily get through the trail.

Great 2-day Inca trail experience We had a great 2-day Inca Trail with Miguel, our guide, and Orange Nation. The team was flexible and advised us on the best way to get to do the trip despite some political difficulties at the time. They went over and above to get us on the best schedule, help with the luggage and making everything go smoothly. We were lucky with the weather but also the design of the trip was really good as we got to see Machu Picchu both without people and in full sun :) Our guide Miguel was very knowledgeable, great storyteller, fun, and very calm, we didn’t stress with anything, we were always on time and knew exactly what to do. Overall, we had a great experience and enjoyed a glimpse into the world of the Inca :)
