2019 Machu Picchu Trip

Explore Peru and hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu!

Your food and equipment are carried for you while you carry your daypack.  Hikes are 8-12 miles a day with 2,000 elevation gains. Since we’re going to be a high elevation, we have a 3 day acclimation period.  If you experience altitude sickness at any part of the hike, you can descend to a lower elevation.
