If you would like to hike the Inca Trail but don’t have the time, or you are not in a peak physical condition or dislike sleeping in a tent, our 2 day/1 night Inca Trail Trek option is the ideal choice for you.
Our Inca Trail Trek will give you the opportunity to visit the complex of Wiñay Wayna ruins, one of the most beautiful sights in the Andean region. It also offers the chance to visit the Sun Gate to admire Machu Picchu, a truly unforgettable experience.
Unlike our 4 day/3 night Trek, you are not exposed to the elements or forced to sleep in a tent. The Inca Trail Trek provides quality hostel accommodation in Aguas Calientes which can be upgraded to a hotel, if necessary.
Please note the Inca Trail is limited to 500 people a day and is monitored by the National Institute of Culture in Cusco. Therefore, it is necessary to make your Inca Trail reservation a few months in advance.
