The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
This is an absolutely stunning trek through the Andes Mountains in Peru. The terrain in this area is greatly varied according to the elevation you are traveling at. At lower elevations there is rain forest and very warm temperatures and, as you ascend not only does the temperature drop but, the environment changes dramatically from rain to cloud forest, deciduous forest and alpine terrain (above tree line). We will experience all except the rain forest on this trek and, if you choose the amazon basin extension, that will take you deep into the rain forest as well! Many operators offer a 4 day trek on the Inca trail while, we do it in 5 days for a number of reasons. Probably the most important reason is this separates us from the majority of other trekkers on the trail. Other reasons include: later start on day 1, shorter hike on day 1 which really helps on day 2 and, who wouldn't want an extra day?! If you have a group of your own and would like to arrange a private trip, please send an inquiry and, we'll do our best to accommodate.
