At Intrepid we’ve always been about balancing profit and purpose and as the largest B Corp certified operator on the Inca Trail we’re committed to operating our treks for the benefit of all – join us and help make the world a better place.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
The Andes mountains are breathtaking, but the heights reached on this trip can cause some people to suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Medical and health information’ section of Essential Trip Information for more details on this.
Navigating the rugged terrain and in this region is unforgettable. The trade-off is that some of the activities can be challenging – particularly with the altitude. You will need to be moderately fit in order to enjoy the included activities on this trip. It's important to be patient as your body adjusts and alert your guide if you are feeling unwell.
It’s best to wear layers at all times of the year in case conditions change during the day. At night the temperature can really drop, so bring warm clothes.
Staying with a local family on Lake Titicaca is a rewarding and authentic travel experience, but keep in mind that the facilities will be basic. Water is cold, meals are simple, and bathrooms are shared.
