Peru Travel and Tours

Peru is the land of the ancient Incas, an incredible civilization that knew how to dominate its rugged geography and coexist in harmony with the rivers, the sun, the rain, the sea and the Amazon, the mountains and the dry cold of the Andes, adapting itself to its environment and surviving thanks to the beneficial fruits of the Pachamama.
Part of that millenary society lives today in each town and is discovered in the customs of the people.
Live tourism in Peru and discover a diversity of worlds with landscapes, sounds, colors and flavors of their own; it travels through time through millenarian civilizations and shares its great cultural heritage with the Peruvians. Enjoy countless cities, destinations, and experiences that can only be fully understood once you live them in your own flesh, once you have thrown your roots and destinies.

If you decide to visit Peru for holidays and have the time to discover the highlights of many of these special regions there are several tour packages Inca Trail Machu offers that take you into the remote areas of the Amazon Jungle, many great coastal regions, the starkly stunning and mystical desert areas of the Nazca Lines and Ica, the magnificent Andes mountains and it's spectacular treks such as Classic Inca Trail, Lares Valley or Salkantay Trek and of course Machu Picchu. Colca Canyon is home to its rare bird inhabitants- the Condors and the deepest canyon in the world. Arequipa is a modern southern city near Colca Canyon and the home to the famous 'Misti' active volcano. Lake Titicaca, the highest navigatable lake in the world is another must-see and a fascinating place going by boat to the island people of Taquile, Uros, and Amantani.


Peru is a country of the vast diversity in climate, landscapes, and cultures. From the high glacier areas and the Andean mountains, lush valleys, beautiful coastal regions, amazing desert landscapes, and of course the vast Amazon Jungle.

The Classic Inca Trail Packages

Trekkers normally take 4 day hike to "Classic Inca Trail". It starts from one of two points: 88 km (55 miles) or 82 km (51 miles) from Cusco on the Urubamba River at approximately 2,800 metres (9,200 ft) or 2,600 metres (8,500 ft) altitude, respectively.


Both of these trail segments meet above the Inca ruins of Patallaqta (sometimes called Llaqtapata), a site used for religious and ceremonial functions, crop production, and housing for soldiers from the nearby hilltop site of Willkaraqay, an ancient pre-Inca site first inhabited around 500 BC. The trail undulates, but overall ascends along the Kusichaka River. At the small village Wayllapampa ("grassy plain", Wayllabamba) the trail intersects with the "Mollepata Trail" at 3,000 metres (9,800 ft).


Peru travel and tours

Small, permanent settlements are located adjacent to the trail, and Wayllapampa has approximately 400 inhabitants (130 families) spread along this portion of the trail. Pack animals—horses, mules, donkeys, and llamas—are allowed.


At Wayllapampa the trail to Machu Picchu turns west and begins ascending along a tributary of the Kusichaka. Because of previous damage caused by hooves, pack animals are not allowed on the remainder of the trail.


As the trail ascends toward Warmi Wañusqa, or "Dead Woman's Pass",it passes through differing habitats, one of which is a cloud forest containing Polylepis trees. The campsite at Llulluch'apampa (Llulluchapampa) is located on this stretch of trail at 3,800 metres (12,500 ft). The pass itself is located at 4,215 m (13,829 ft) above sea level, and is the highest point on the Classic Inca Trail. After crossing the pass the trail drops steeply into the Pakaymayu drainage. At a distance of 2.1km and 600m below the pass is the campground Pakaymayu.


The Inca Trail is the most famous trekking route to Machu Picchu, therefore, we recommend you make your Inca Trail book 2022 & 2023 early.


If you do not have a lot of time or are a person with little physical resistance, you can choose the Short Inca Trail Tour, this alternative route only lasts 2 days and 1 night
