Day 1: Cusco – Chinchero – Ollantaytambo – Malaga Pass – Waman Marka – Maranura

We will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco at 6.30am. We will leave the city aboard our private vehicle, between the hills that border Cusco, through Chinchero: a typical village, which has kept much of the Inca architecture, overlooking the Sacred Valley of the Incas, to Ollantaytambo.

An Inca village that served as a fortress during the Inca uprising of Manco Capac against the Spaniards from 1535. From there, we will climb to the Abra Malaga (pass located at 4400 meters altitude) where we will arrive around 10am. This is the starting point of our adventure on mountain bike (except in case of bad weather, we will advance to the next starting point).

We will start the descent in the middle of the forest, to join the hot valleys of the Amazon Basin, crossing small typical villages, for a duration of 3 or 4 hours. On the way, we will stop for lunch. In addition, we will have the opportunity to observe the local flora and visit the archaeological site Wamanmarka (“the falcon site” in Quechua).

We will arrive at Maranura (1110 m) where we will have dinner and spend the night at a family of the village (10 minutes from Santa Maria). The afternoon will be a moment of exchange with the family, who will teach you how to harvest coffee and cocoa, depending on the season. If you wish, you can also participate in optional activities.

Day 2: Maranura – Santa Teresa – Hydroelectric Station – Aguas Calientes

We will get up around 6:00 to enjoy the excellent local coffee and exotic fruit juices (depending on the season) as well as the full breakfast prepared by our host.

We will then take a vehicle that will take us along the Vilcanota River to the village of Santa Teresa (1850m). If we have enough time we can visit the hot springs of Cocalmayo, all near the village of Santa Teresa. After relaxing in the warm waters, we will have lunch.

Day 3: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

We will leave our hotel very early after breakfast and will take the first tourist bus, at 5.30am, which goes up to Machu Picchu (half an hour climb), to enjoy an unforgettable view with the sunrise on the site.

Our guide will make us visit and explain to us how was the life in the citadel, as well as the cults and ceremonies that the Incas performed in the many temples and sacred places present on the site.

After 2 hours of guided tour, you can enjoy the magic of the Machu Picchu sanctuary at your own pace. Those who wish can climb the mountain Huayna Picchu and will be rewarded with an exceptional view of Machu Picchu seen from above (entry to Huayna Picchu must be booked in advance).

    J'ai été absolument ravie des services de cette agence ! En contact avec Dimas, celui-ci m'a toujours donné de bons conseils et m'a organisé le trek Inca (4 jours de rando vers le Macchu Picchu) et 3 jours au lac Titicaca à la perfection ! Je suis partie seule mais avec cette agence, je ne me suis jamais sentie seule 🙏❤️ Dimas parle français, un point de plus pour les non polyglottes 😁😁

    Did the four-day Inca tour with our guide Lazandro, and had a great time with the small group of five we had. Booked when we arrived in Cusco and paid $540 including credit card fees, though I believe pricing is more expensive when booking in advance/online. Enjoyed the small group experience and ability to go at your own pace (unlike some of the larger agencies that bring multiple waves of people). Food was great and the camping conditions were satisfactory, though everyone on the Inca Trail is subject to primitive pit toilets. Pacing of the tour was better than other groups who had to summit twice in a day. I recommend the agency, but with the one caveat that I wish they provided better boots or hiking apparel for their porters. As they are all required by law, some of the other agencies provide much better equipment for their porters, and I wish Xtreme Tourbulencia did the same. Overall, great experience and what I felt was a good value trek!

    We went as a couple on the Inka trail for 4 days. I think we had one of the best trek experience we could have with Rene and Nestor as guides, Cesar, Mario, Papicho and all the others as porters and cooks. Thank you so much. We booked through ITEP agency in Cusco and everything went super well. Rene was very proactive, reliable and proficient. 5/5 for him and the team. Edit: quiero mas chupi! A couple of negative points for me: - Just know that this is a very busy trail, and the Machu Picchu is even busier - that's nothing to blame either on the company nor on the team - it seems that the team, most importantly the porters, are not so well paid, or at least it is unclear how much they earn. We tried to compensate this with tips, but it's just impossible to know if you're tipping right, and it would be much preferrable if the company was transparent about where the money goes.

    Wir waren mit Xtreme Tourbulencia vier Tage auf dem Inka Trail unterwegs und haben die Wanderung dank der guten Betreuung und Versorgung durch das Team erfolgreich hinter uns gebracht. Der Guide René hat sich super auf unser Tempo eingestellt und die Tour mit zahlreichen Erklärungen zu Kultur, Architektur, Pflanzen, Tieren und vielem mehr bereichert. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen!
