Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, one of the most famous treks in the world, is an experience that attracts travellers from all over the globe every year who want to experience the magic for themselves. A trek unlike any other, the legend of Machu Picchu is steeped in folklore from the time of the Incas through to its rediscovery in the early 1900s, with archaeologists and historians still uncovering more trails, ruins, and artefacts to this very day.

The mysteries of Machu Picchu are right up there with the Egyptian pyramids and Ancient Greece: stellar cultures and societies of a bygone era that still capture the world’s imagination centuries later. What has been left behind in places like Machu Picchu only fuels the fire of our intrepid imaginations about what once was, and for us, what will be once we see the sites for ourselves in person. Peru’s most iconic landmark leaves an indelible mark on the soul. Earning your right to visit Machu Picchu over the course of four spellbinding days, where you share moments that become memories, with strangers who become friends, sets this trek apart from everything you would have experienced up until this point.

In a world of overflowing tourism, only the most impassioned of travellers make their way to Peru for this life-changing experience.

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu takes a four-day expedition set amongst unforgettable scenery. Our travellers are bewitched at the turn of every corner; where else in the world can you witness panoramic vistas of mountains emerging from the earth, standing side-by-side with a white river striking its way down the middle, while Peru’s national bird (called a cock-of-the-rock) soars overhead as you stand hundreds of metres above the ground with the sun to your face and the jungle to your back?
