2 Days

Jan, Mar - Dec




* Embark on a magical trip to the impressive Machu Picchu.

* Hike through the dazzling Peruvian jungle.

* Explore some incredible archeological sites.


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.

What people are saying about Peru


He was very kind, patient and helped me to reach my goal the citadel of Machupicchu. One day I wanted to quit but he encouraged me to continue and waited for my step.


We did the MTB-Huarascan-Circuit (Crossing Punta Olimpica Pass and Portachuelo de Llanganuco Pass) with Eric Albinos „Peru Expedition“. All, the transfers, the hotel stays, the acclimatization tours and the circuit itself, was well organized. Eric and his staff were flexible to our wishes and very helpful. Our Guide Joni is an excellent mountain bike-guide and good tailor too if something is torn. The cook prepared delicious meals during the circuit. The camping equipment was in very good condition. We (Karin, Franz. Wolfgang) can fully recommend „Eric´s Peru Expeditions“.



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.


5 star guide. Nothing but the best.


A very, very sympathic guide, who knows all the secrets of the places and itinerarys the most beautiful ; organization top ; food excellent too ; marvellous souvenirs.
