The ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu is one of the most spectacular sights in the world, and a great way to discover it is to trek along the Inca Trail by booking a holiday with Walks Worldwide.
We offer you the chance to explore the beautiful Andes mountain range on a variety of tours that end up at the famous landmark, which lies hidden in the deep folds of the tall peaks.
As we specialise in walking holidays, you can be sure that you can trek along some of the best routes and will benefit from the expertise of our trained guides.
Whichever Inca walk you embark on, you can be sure you will be surrounded by breathtaking scenery and historic sites throughout your journey.
What types of Inca tours are available?
Since its discovery in 1911, Machu Picchu has become one of the most popular sites in Peru for tourists to visit.
It is believed that the Incas built the city hidden on top of a mountain peak in the Andes hundreds of years ago, miles away from any other form of civilisation.
Much of the history concerning the area remains a mystery, but visitors come here in their droves in order to walk down the stone staircases and see the city's formations overlooking the cloud forest.
While seeing the sight of Machu Picchu as you finish your long trek might have been something you've always dreamed of doing, there are several options when it comes to picking what tour to go on.
Those who really want to make the most of their time in the Andean peaks may wish to book on to the Espiritu Pampa trek, which lasts for 14 days.
This will allow hikers to see more of the diverse landscape of the area and discover the remote forest called Espiritu Pampa. As well as trekking over the steep mountains, this trip will give you the opportunity to see the region's jungles.
While the Inca Trial has become very popular over the years, if you're looking for a walk that might be a little more isolated, you could be interested in the Lares Inca Trail, which explores the less-visited areas of the Sacred Valley and Lares Valley.
We also offer the chance to trek for 11 days high on the rugged peaks with the Ausangate Circuit, which will see you venture into the deep valleys, take a look at snow-covered mountain tops and visit glacial lakes before opting to visit Machu Picchu.
For some, there is no bigger challenge than the Classic Inca Trail, which is the most famous of the treks in the region, taking you through the Sacred Valley of the Incas and looking at the ruins at Ollantaytambo before following in the footsteps of the Incas on their pathway to the lost city.
