Tour Details

The four-day Inca Trail, considered one of the best treks in South America, is a journey of approximately 43 kilometers. The tour takes you through ancient Inca roads where you will visit different Archaeological Sites built by the Inca civilization.

This four-day tour will take you through rugged geographies with ascents and descents next to precipices, a tropical climate that is home to a very varied fauna and flora. Along with our guide, you will learn more about the construction techniques used by the Incas for this tour and the agriculture they managed to develop.

To carry out this challenge, we recommend that you be in good physical condition and spend a few days in Cusco or acclimatize to the cold weather to avoid altitude sickness.
