Great Inca Trail - Hikers on the way to Huchuy Qosqo

Great Inca Trail Day Hikes to Machu Picchu

Discover the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco, explore several forgotten Inca Trails that are hidden in plain sight and top it all off by hiking into Machu Picchu and unearthing the secrets of the Incas’ crowning achievement. We’ve called on our in-depth knowledge of Cuzco’s Inca trails, ruins and communities to put together a challenging itinerary that will take you far from the madding crowd to experience the Incas’ heritage. The best part? With two nights in a Cuzco hotel, two nights in a Sacred Valley property and two nights in Machu Picchu, you won’t have to go near a tent!

Starting from $4,190 per person

Pricing includes everything from your international arrival to your departure, with the exception of flights and a few lunches and dinners.


  • Hike on ancient Inca Trails which very few foreigners get to experience. Meet the locals who still use these historic transport arteries daily and marvel in the wide open landscapes of the Andes.
  • Hike little-known Inca ruins like Inkilltambo, Rumi Wasi and Huchuy Qosqo almost entirely to yourself – a moving contrast to the popularity of Machu Picchu.
  • Hike into a remote Andean village whose Inca traditions are still thriving. Enjoy a fresh mountain lunch and a community visit (the women are incredible weavers) before hiking back out.
  • Start the Inca Trail at KM104, seeing the best that the trail has to offer while reducing the time spent hiking.
  • Overnight stays in comfortable hotels between the various day-hikes, to give you the opportunity to rest your hardworking body and make use of all amenities.
