1 day Inca Trail -orange nation peru

2 day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 2021 & 2022

The Inca Trail Treks are known as some of the world’s best hikes. The trail was built by the Incas over 900 years ago to connect their capital city of Cusco to the Sacred Citadel of Machu Picchu.  The Classic 4-day Inca Trail is in extremely high demand and permits sell out quickly.  However, for some the Classic Inca Trail is too challenging of a trek, or they do not have the time, or permits are sold out.  The 2 day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the last one third of the Classic Inca Trail is a perfect option. A hiker still enters through the Sun Gate straight to Machu Picchu Citadel, gets to visit the archeological site of Winay Huayna and visits Machu Picchu twice, the 1st and 2nd day of the trek.   A great option for all! HOW EARLY MUST I BOOK THE 2 DAY INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU FOR 2020? SHORT INCA TRAIL: If you are booking the 2 day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, it is preferred that you also book in advance, however 2 to 4 months before is possible depending on the date you chose to trek. *** Please note: To protect this historical trek, the Peruvian government heavily regulates it.  There are only 250 permits issued per day for the 2 day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.  Before there were usually enough permits for this trek, however due to the high demand months of May through September, some dates are may be…

Clean Up Campaign

Orange Nation Peru believes in being committed in using ECO-TOURISM as a tool to encourage the protection of the natural environment. We encourage to love and respect nature through enhanced understanding and awareness, both in our staff and clients. We create frameworks where the ECO-TOURISM business promotes truly sustainable use of pristine natural environments and nature. These benefits are shared equally and fairly with local communities, with no damage to the natural environment surrounding them. In addition to promoting ECO Tourism, we also have annual environmental projects to raise awareness in protecting our natural surroundings.  Our goals would be to promote eco-tourism in partnership with local communities, raise awareness in environmental welfare and teach others the importance of conserving our natural surroundings.

Christmas Surprise

Orange Nation Peru has many goals to collaborate with Andean communities in Cusco to overcome economic and social challenges through a working partnership that directs resources toward sustainable projects. Special focus is given to support the children within those communities as well as take part in their educational endeavors.  Orange Nation Peru establishes annual social projects that are committed to share the spirit of Christmas by participating in activities such as: distribute Christmas presents, hand out sweet treats and hot chocolate to about 300 children or so. All of these small activities would not happen without the support we get from tourists and also our team members!  We want to thank you all of you for providing us with items needed for these projects, which have been so gratefully accepted by all the local communities and families!  Below are pictures from the project we held this year in the community of Pacchanta.

Dreams Come True

Local indigenous visit Machu Picchu December of 2017, Orange Nation once again fulfilled the dreams of 36 children and their parents from the indigenous community of Pampamarca way up in the Andean mountains in the south of Cusco. They got to tour Cusco City, Sacred Valley and the Citadel of Machu Picchu all paid for by Orange Nation.  These are children do not have the resources nor ability for many reasons to be able to experience the historical sites of their Inca heritage.  Sam Travel wants to give them a once in a lifetime experience up close and in person of their heritage and restore their pride in their culture, history and Inca heritage. Why Orange Takes Children to Machu Picchu Orange Nation believes it is extremely important to give, the native Indigenous people, Los Incas, of the Andean highlands that live way high up in the more isolated mountainous regions around Cusco, the opportunity to see and experience Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and Cusco, their ancient descendant’s historical sites. We are hoping to restore to the people of the indigenous communities, a pride and an understanding of the importance of their history, heritage, and ancient culture. This is being lost to the people. The people of these communities have been marginalized in some cases by society and may lack basic necessities in their communities of education, health services, adequate food and housing etc. It is sad that millions of foreigners now have the opportunity to experience Machu Picchu, Sacred…

Tree Planting

Orange Nation as a travel agency is concerned about our environment and believes it is our social responsibility to preserve our planet. Due to deforestation in the Andes Mountains, there are numerous mountain slopes that are void of trees. Trees are critical for their beauty, their ability to protect the environment, and for all wildlife, livestock and the people living near them. Please note below the long list of the benefits of tree planting for our planet.SAM Travel as a joint effort between the Kiswarani Indigenous Community and themselves planted 10,000 trees on the slopes of the Lares Valley. 70 people in 1 day with lots of hard work managed to cover the slopes of the surrounding mountains with 10,000 Queuna trees. They are native trees to the Andean Mountains and are better than the eucalyptus trees which people have planted in the past that are not native trees and take over and destroy the environment. The local Kiswarani community looks forward to when they will have the joy of the trees scenery daily, protection for the animals, and the natural hardwood for building and framing of homes. Tree plantings benefit the land, animals, and people by: Restoring or enhancing the natural beauty of the Andean slopes Restoring the forest previous destroyed by deforestation Reducing soil erosion and wind erosion. Reducing water evaporation, preserving winter moisture, and protecting and improving water quality Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide Providing food and cover for wildlife and livestock. Protecting livestock from the elements and…

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.
