WHY THIS TRIP
The Inca Trail Multisport is an active and adventurous journey that gets you off the beaten path to explore the culture and history of the Incas and their descendants still living in the Machu Picchu area around Cusco and the Sacred Valley. You will visit the more popular sites in unusual ways, and at different times than most tourists, then you will hike the Inca Trail on the 5-day schedule so you avoid the crowds and have time to explore ruins along the way.
From the get-go you’re on the perfect trip, beginning with an altitude acclimatization stroll around Cusco. Then it’s on to a relaxing pace of thrills a day. No kidding, your local guides know this area like the back of their hand and pace the days for maximum enjoyment away from the rush of a crowd.
So, relax, savor the day as you float whitewater rapids of the upper Urubamba River. Mosey about the colorful Pisac artisan market. Pick your speed as you mountain bike the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The height of the experience is a multi-day hiking journey on the iconic Inca Trail (*) to Peru’s most famous landmark, Machu Picchu.
Your professional guides are keenly aware that your hike of the Inca Trail is likely your only chance for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the world-renowned trail. Focused on a memorable adventure from one end to the other, your guides assure comfortable camps and great meals on a five-day journey rather than a blistering three. For ideal on-trail exploration and viewing, your guides stagger the start of each day and follow a hiking plan to avoid crowds. If you want to relish your time on the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu, this is your trip.
