Click on a day below to expand the itinerary.

Day 1

Arrive Lima (Overnight in Lima hotel). Transfer to hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax.

Day 2

Cusco (Overnight Cusco): Fly from Lima to Cusco and meet with your tour leader. Transfer to hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax and acclimatize. Take a look around Cusco’s beautiful Main Square with its colonial architecture. (Breakfast included)

Day 3

Sacred Valley Tour (Overnight Ollantaytambo). Travel through the Sacred Valley and visit the towns and Inca ruins of Pisaq and Ollantaytambo. Get a chance to learn a little about the local people, their way of life and their traditional weaving techniques. (Breakfast included)

Day 4

Start the Inca Trail. Depart from Km 82 and cross the Urubamba River Bridge and begin our walk in the footsteps of the Incas. We travel along the winding path that skirts the river, offering views of the Vilcanota mountain range. Our route journeys through the narrow Cusishaca valley and later we’ll reach the indigenous community of Huayllabamba. Our local crew of porters cooks and guides look after us well for the duration of the hike. Porters carry the majority of the gear for the hike, so those passengers doing the hike only need carry a small daypack for the daily essentials. We camp at Wayllabamba. Approx. walking time 5 hours. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

Day 5

On the second day we climb the long steep path to Warmiwañusca, or Dead Woman’s Pass. At 4215 m (13769 ft) above sea level, this pass is the highest point of the trek. The second pass of the hike is Runcuracay (3998 m) where, on clear days, we enjoy superb views of the snow-capped Cordillera Vilcabamba. Tonight we camp at Pacaymayo. Approx. walking time 7 hours. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

Day 6

Today the trail goes through some beautiful cloud forest on a climb which is steeper than Dead Woman’s Pass but shorter. You will walk through a causeway and a tunnel, both original Inca constructions. The highest point of the third pass is at 3700m. On clear days you are rewarded for all this work with beautiful views of the Urubamba Valley below. Soon you reach the serene ruins of Phuyupatamarca, or the 'Town above the Clouds', at about 3650m above sea level. We camp for the final night close to Wiñay Wayna (Forever Young) ruins, a grandiose terraced hillside site, with panoramic views of the valley below and just a short hike from Machu Picchu. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

Day 7

Arrive at Machu Picchu. Today we visit the remarkable Machu Picchu. There is no way to describe the feeling of the first views of Machu Picchu, as the mist rises off the mountains early in the morning and the famous ruin appears in front of you. It may be called the Sun Gate but bear in mind we are in the cloud forest and sometimes “Cloud Gate” would be a more suitable name. The morning is dedicated to exploring the extraordinary site of Machu Picchu, where your guide will be on hand to explain and give you an insight into the life of the Incas at Machu Picchu. For the keen, there’s also the opportunity to climb the sacred peak of Huanya Picchu. In the afternoon, we take the train from Aguas Calientes back to Cusco. (Breakfast and snack included)

Day 8

Depart Cusco or extend your stay with an excursion to the Amazon, Puno and the Floating Islands, Arequipa and Colca Canyon or view the Nazca Lines. Enquire about options and pricing. (Breakfast included)

"My husband and I loved every minute of our adventure trip to Peru. Our itinerary offered a taste of the big city of Lima to the history and architecture of Cusco and the unforgettable trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Corinne escorted our group and was on top of every detail. The Inti Raymi festival after the trek was the icing on the cake! We can't wait for our next Bucket List Adventure!"
