The Inca Trail has always been wonderful, part of a 30,000 km network. of trails that go from Mendoza in Argentina to the border between Ecuador and Colombia, and an essential part of the Inca Empire road system. Vibrant with the most incredible nature that can be found in a trekking due to the situation of the subtropical forest, full of valleys, snowy mountains and an amazing variety of plants, birds and animals, crossing archaeological sites and the traditional living culture of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, while using their cautiously preserved stairs, tunnels and ending in the legendary Machu Picchu.
Walking on the Inca Trail will be one of those experiences that you will remember forever since this is the essential adventure of the Peruvian trip, a perfect blend of cosmopolitan and traditional Andean life. For this excursion to Machu Picchu you can immerse yourself in that gigantic and preserved Inca culture by listening to the locals proudly defend their traditions while they learn one or two Quechua words along the way, immerse themselves in those fantastic landscapes, in true living paintings of Mother Nature and redefine the way you travel, while taking care of everything else.
