  • 2-Day Private Tour of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

    The short Inca Trail is a wonderful option for those who don't have the time or desire to hike the full length of the Inca Trail.

Covering a distance of just 6.3 miles (0km), this 2-day Inca Trail is not too challenging, making it perfect for families with children and those on a tight schedule.

As we make our way to Machu Picchu, we'll pass through the lush cloud forest that covers the mountain and see a variety of plants, flowers and birds along the way. We may also see some larger mammals such as viscachas (rabbit-like Chinchillas) and spectacled bears (if we are very lucky). After a full day trekking, we'll arrive to the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) in the late afternoon and get our first views of Machu Picchu spread out in the mountain below.
