Iconic Inca Trail Trek

Online event

Hike the iconic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru with a small group of bold women! Your trip is fully-supported with deluxe camping, porters, and chefs. Prior to your hike, spend 3 days acclimatizing and exploring Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Then, trek 4 days and 3 nights on the classic route to reach Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate with a bonus extra day at Machu Picchu. The highlight of your Inca trek will be that moment when you walk through the Sun Gate after four days on the trail into Machu Picchu at the Golden Hour when the sun starts to set! During the first part of your adventure you’ll explore the ancient ruins, landmarks, and museums of Cusco and the Sacred Valleys. Sites to see include Cusco Cathedral, the Inca Museum, and Sacsayhuaman. Our private guide will walk us through each site giving us a personal tour and revealing the stories of the Incan Culture. You’ll visit the famous Maras Salt Pans and Moray Inca site learning about the experimental agricultural techniques. Then it’s on to a living Quechua village high in the mountains. The children will melt your heart as they race our bus up to their homes. . Consider it quite the honor as the families show you their homes, serve up a traditional lunch cooked in the ground, and demonstrate their weaving techniques. Then on Day 4 we will arrive to KM 82 to kick off our four-day trek on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Emotions will be high as you watch our team of porters pack and prepare for a truly epic journey following in the footsteps of the Inca and their holy pilgrimage to Machu Picchu. Our very first night on the Inca Trail is spent at a private campground surrounded by Incan structures that will not be occupied by any other Inca Trail Trekkers. Over the course of 4 days and 3 nights you will hike up and over three mountain passes with the highest being the ominous Dead Woman’s Pass standing at 13,828 ft. Oh, and you bet you’ll get real familiar with those famous Incan steps. But all your efforts and screaming quads will be worth the views of breath taking valleys, soaring Andean mountain peaks, and stunning scenery. On Day 7 your step will quicken as you sense the Sun Gate approaches. Yes, walking through the Sun Gate is an honor that few get to enjoy. You just walked to Machu Picchu! And, close to sunset! Yes, the coveted Golden Hour! Then upon exiting, we’ll be staying the night in Aguas Calientes, where you can shower and sleep in a real bed at our hotel. The next morning, you’ll wake up fresh as daisies for Round 2 at Machu Picchu. Your private tour continues as our local guide takes us through Machu Picchu pointing out areas of significance. Throughout your Inca Trail Trek, you’ll enjoy Deluxe camping in 4 person tents that sleep only 2 people. We’ll be eating in dining tents, and enjoying private toilets and showers. We’ll have a team of porters and professional chefs who will aid our group along the trail carrying our overnight gear, setting up our tent city, and cooking us scrumptious meals. You only need to carry a day pack on the trail. All you are left to do is exhale, free your mind, and take in the challenging, sacred journey.
