The Inca Trails are considered an engineering masterpiece. They were built for the passage of people and goods, as well as for the transmission of news, through the “chaskis” or Inca messengers, who were known to have run along these paths between the coast and the highlands non-stop. These trails are designed to be hiked, with stones covering their surface and sides, ensuring a firm footing and stability in such varied areas as high plateaus, grasslands and cloud-forests rich in vegetation, while fully integrating and respecting the nature and environment they cross.
Walk the paths of one of the world’s oldest and most iconic routes and the only one today leading to the Sacred Inca City of Machupicchu by foot. Along the way, experience the fine architecture of its archaeological sites perched in dramatic locations, appreciate the breath-taking mountain scenery, and the lush cloud-forests rich in Andean flora and fauna, to finally reach the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, recognized today as one of the world wonders. Surpassing every expectation, Machu Picchu is truly a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
