Details of Day Tours

Day 1: Cusco - Wiñay Wayna - Machu Picchu

You will be picked up from your hotel located in the city of Cusco and taken to the train station in Ollantaytambo, located at the Sacred Valley of the Incas. You will travel through a picturesque route for 1 hour approximately until reaching kilometer 104, starting point of the Inca trail trek.

It is time to hike! From here, you will walk for about 3 hours up to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna (`Forever Young`). During the trek you will admire beautiful flora and fauna like vizcachas, spectacled bears and different kind of birds. Also, you will enjoy a box lunch.

You will join the path on the way to Machu Picchu in the Andean mountains, continuing to `Inti Punku` (`Sun gate`). From here, you will get your first breathtaking panoramic view of the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. Then, walk down the last portion of the trail to reach the ancient city itself. This day you will hike a total of 7.4 miles which is about 6 hours.

Before reaching Machu Picchu, you will take a side path off the trail to go down to Aguas Calientes, leaving the visit to Machu Picchu for the next day. In Aguas Calientes, you`ll have dinner and a well-deserved rest to feel recharged and ready for Machu Picchu the next day.
