Day 6

Inca Trail Hike - Begin your once in a lifetime journey on the ancient trail of the Incas with a morning trip to kilometer 82 across the Urubamba River Bridge and the start our walk in the very 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, cook, and guide 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 their daily essentials.

We camp at Wayllabamba. Approx. walking time 5 hours (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included).

Day 7

Hike On the second day we climb the long steep path to Warmiwañusca, or Dead Woman’s Pass. Don’t be put off by the name – with your guide’s encouragement you’ll make it to the top and enjoy the fantastic view that awaits you! At 4215m (13769 ft) above sea level, this pass is the highest point of the trek. The second pass of the hike is Runcuracay (3998m or 13113 ft) 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, Snacks and Dinner included).

Day 8

Hike - Today the trail goes through some beautiful cloud forest on a climb which is steeper than Dead Woman’s Pass but shorter (1 ½ hours), you will walk through a causeway and a tunnel, both original Inca constructions. The highest point of the third pass is at 3700m (12136 ft). 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 3650 m (11972 ft) 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.

Day 9

Inca Trail to Machu Picchu - the final day we climb the steps to Intipunku, the 'Sun Gate', and get our first view of 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.

Approx. walking time 2 hours. We will enjoy a tour of the famous Inca ruins, free time in Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes before we head back by train and bus to Cuzco later in the day. Overnight Hotel Cuzco Hostal Pension Alemana Calle (Breakfast and Snacks 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!"
