About Peru

Inca Trail Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Lima

The Plaza Mayor, in the heart of Lima’s historic centre, is an excellent base to explore this pulsating capital. Visit the Museo de la Inquisicion for an insight into the Spanish Inquisition, or head to the fascinating catacombs and interesting artworks of monasterio de San Francisco. When the sun goes down, why not search out some of Peru’s intriguing culinary specialities in the eclectic suburb of Miraflores before mixing it with the locals in one of the many buzzing bars.

Day 2 Cuzco

Cuzco is the gateway to Machu Picchu and a city with majestic architecture, impressive ruins, a lively town centre and cultural significance around every cobblestone corner.

Day 3 Sacred Valley/Ollantaytambo

The Sacred Valley was once the heartland of the Inca Empire and now contains picturesque villages and impressive archeological sites. Located in the Urubamba Valley, the city of Ollantaytambo is an incredible archeological site and the starting point of the classic Inca Trail trek.

Days 4-7 Inca Trail/Machu Picchu/Cuzco

Winding around mountains, through valleys and up steep slopes, the iconic Inca Trail is a series of beautiful vistas and challenging hikes all the way to Machu Picchu. Built sometime in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu were thought to be an estate for the Incan emperor, Pachacuti.

Day 8 Cuzco

A World Heritage site set among red-green hills with ruins scattered close by, Cuzco is impressive in every way - be it history, culture, nightlife or architecture.
