Inca Trail Alternative Treks

You do not need to feel sad if the classic Inca Trail is fully booked since there are many Alternative Treks to Machu Picchu that follow one of the large and authentic Inca path networks. These alternatives are not less stunning, they are just less known and so they are not crowded with hikers, and consequently, the number of participants is not limited. The treks listed below belong among the most favourite options.


Depending on your physical condition, you can choose an easy 2-day Putucusi to Machu Picchu trek or an equally short Llactapata Inca Trek. For the moderate effort and a mix of stunning natural sceneries along with some Inca constructions, you can go for one of the 4-day trails such as the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu, Inca Quarry, or Salkantay Trek Peru. Our 5-day hikes are meant for more experienced hikers, for instance, Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, Deep Salkantay Trek Expedition, and Choquequirao Trek. The latter takes you to a hidden jewel and the real lost city of the Incas. There is also an option involving a visit to both Inca cities, it means the 9-day Choquequirao to Machu Picchu Trek, which we would recommend only those in perfect physical shape and with lots of trekking experience.

It only depends on you, what experience you prefer and what difficulty suits you. Some of them are available in several variants and can be tailored to your condition!
