This version of the Inca Trail is a private service – not in a public group – with more comfort, quality and flexibility over the timing of your trek. This trek allows a customized, more tranquil experience. If you desire more accommodation to the needs of your group, this is the option for you. Your private guide will cater to your group’s discovery of the secrets and legends of the majestic Inca empire. The first day is a hike on the Inca trail, with Inca archaeological sites and time to explore the wondrous flora and fauna. The second day will be dedicated to the sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Km 104 – Wiñayhuayna – Aguas Calientes

We’ll leave Cusco very early in the morning with a private vehicle, and pass through the Sacred Valley, following the course of the Vilcanota River until we arrive at Ollantaytambo. Here we’ll take the train until km104, the beginning of the trek. After a short walk, we’ll arrive to the archaeological site Chachabamba (2270m/7448f), where historically, agricultural products were gathered before transportation to Machu Picchu. We’ll continue the hike with beautiful views of the Urubamba River, and the opportunity to see different species of orchids. Next, we’ll see the Wañayhuayna site (2700m/8858f), a fabulous complex perched on a rocky outcrop, overlooking the Urubamba Valley and dominated by a vast set of terraces. After a short break, we’ll continue our walk and arrive at Inti Puku (the Sun Gate) in the afternoon. This first view of Machu Picchu under the afternoon sun is fantastic. We’ll descend to Machu Picchu (2400m/7874f) and continue to Aguas Calientes, where you’ll settle in your comfortable for the night.
