Join me on a spectacular adventure hiking towards the breathtaking Machu Picchu. Follow the Inca Trail for two days and discover this archeological Peruvian wonder.

The Inca Trail is definitely one of the most beautiful trails in America. And if you don’t have time for the full experience, this two-day trip is still magical, experiencing the main highlights of the classic trail through the Peruvian jungle.

My proposed itinerary is as follows:

Day 1: Our trip starts early in the morning. We’ll take a train to km 104, where this Royal Inca Trail begins. We’ll hike towards Chachabamba and explore this stunning archeological site. We’ll then continue towards Wiñayhuayna and Inti Punku (Sun Gate) for a spectacular view of Machu Picchu. We’ll sleep at Aguas Calientes.

Day 2: We’ll leave early in the morning towards Machu Picchu, where I’ll give you a complete tour of the ruins and teach you all about them. You can then spend some time exploring by yourself. You can then enjoy the hot springs at Aguas Calientes.

Send your request and follow me on an unforgettable experience. You’ll love every minute of it.

If you have more time to experience the thrill of hiking the Inca Trail, check out the longer 4-day trip I offer.
