The Inca Trail is definitely one of the most beautiful trails in America. And it takes you to an unforgettable destination: the archeological site of Machu Picchu. Follow me on a one-of-a-kind adventure hiking for 4 days in the Peruvian jungle.
This 4-day, 3-night program begins in Cusco. We’ll leave at 5.30am towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The hiking path begins at the Kilometer 82, after crossing the Rio Urubamba. The second day will be a bit harder as we go up the steps to the highest point of the trail: the Warmihuañusca Pass. The third day is the most beautiful of all going through a humid tropical rainforest, visiting lakes and ruins. And the best part: the third camping site has showers with hot water. On the fourth day, we’ll wake up very early to reach Inti Punku (Sun Gate) and enjoy the sunrise over Machu Picchu and Wayna Picchu. After a 2-hour guided tour along the ruins of the Incas, you’ll have enough time to explore this outstanding place as you wish. You can read a more detailed description of the itinerary below.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your trip now and discover this amazing archeological city!

The agency gave me a guide Darwin, not Juventino. Climb was good, easy just walking. There is one dangerous section near the moraine area with very loose gravel. So make sure you don't slip there or you are dead. I stayed in refugio at the base camp which was much more comfy than camping. Darwin was good but give clients some breaks once in a while, not rush too much. It's a high altitude climbing after all.
The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.
From the very first emails communication which was dealt with efficiently and provide all the required information and other options for myself to consider. When I arrived the communication was excellent and very well organised. When I return later this year I will without doubt be using Eric and the team. When we arrive at the start point to getting back the local guide was excellent. I have nothing but praise for the set up.
William was such a knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient guide! He brought books and support materials to further explain the history of the sites we were seeing, was always ready with an answer to any questions, and had great suggestions of where to take photos. He chose a truly remarkable cook for our trek, who kept us well fed with a huge variety of foods (and an ample supply of it!) and filled with hot beverages at all hours of the day and night. He allowed us to set the pace each day, and was cheerful and helpful and relaxed throughout-he absolutely enhanced a wonderful experience! Many thanks to you, William!
Eric from Peru Expeditions is a fabulous, safe, and conscientious Tour Operator. He chose an incredible guide for us (Darwin) who was highly esteemed by every guide we met at every point along the journey-the respect of one’s peers speaks for itself! We were very well supported, always had perfect timing with seeing sunrises, beating “the crowd” to our destinations, and had ample food. The Peruvian mountains are stunningly beautiful- I’m ready to go back again already! Book with Eric - he’s going to take good care of you.
