4 Day Escourted Trek Itinerary

Soft Inca Trail

South America's classic hike

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Cuzco holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

The most popular hike in South America, thousands of people every year take the challenge to walk this ancient trail set by the Incas. Trek during the day and enjoy evenings around the fire in the campsites along the way. Challenging it might be at times but incredible are the rewards: snow-capped mountains, cloud forests, mysterious archaeological complexes and, on the last day sunrise at the Sun Gate with spectacular views of Machu Picchu.
