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



The hike was canceled. We didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t even get into the country.



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.



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.



Great service and trip!
