Itinerary

DAY 01: WIÑAY WAYNA – MACHU PICCHU.

We pick you up from your hotel at 5.40am and take you to the train station. We travel by train, on a very picturesque route for 4 hours until we reach kilometer 104 – the start of the trail for us. From here, we have a walk of approximately 4 hours up to the Inca site Wiñay Wayna (‘Forever Young’) (2680m/8792ft). You have joined the path in time to see the most impressive site overall Inca Trail!

We will then continue on to ‘Inti Punku’ (‘Sun gate’) (2730m/8792ft) from where you will have your first dramatic, panaromic view of Machu Picchu (2400m/7873ft). We will walk down the last part of the trail towards the ancient city itself. On this day, we walk through Machu Picchu, getting a ‘taster’ for the tour the next day! We finish the day going down to Aguas Calientes to have dinner and rest.

DAY 02: MACHU PICCHU TOUR.

We have breakfast and then take the first bus (6am) up to Machu Picchu. Your guide gives a walking tour (approximately 2 hours) and after this, you can explore the mysterious city by yourselves. If you have energy, you can also climb Huayna Picchu (2720m/8890ft)! (It takes about 45 minutes to reach the top.)

You will meet your guide in Aguas Calientes (it can be reached by bus or on foot) for lunch and to be given your train tickets back to Cusco. The train usually leaves at 3.55pm and we will arrive back in Cusco at about 8.45pm.

If desired, an extra night in Aguas Calientes can be arranged. This option is very popular as it allows more time to explore Machu Picchu. You can also go to the thermal springs in the town a real treat after finishing the trail!
