Day 1: Lima 

Arrival to Lima and welcoming reception.  In the afternoon we will have a tour through Lima’s streets and plazas. Starting at the Love Park in Miraflores, with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, and then heading to the Huaca Pucllana, ceremonial center of the Lima culture. Later we will go to San Isidro, financial center of the city to visit de Huaca Huallamarca, ancient pre-Incan shrine. After this, we go on to the Main Square where the Government Palace and the Town Hall are located. We will visit the Cathedral and explore the San Francisco convent, built in the seventeenth century, to discover the mystery of its catacombs.  Stay in Lima.

Day 2: Lima/ Cusco - (Breakfast included)

Transfer to the airport and flight to Cusco. On arrival, welcoming reception and transfer to hotel.    In the afternoon the Imperial Cusco city tour starts at the Main Square to visit the Cathedral and its valuable and beautiful colonial masterpieces such as The Cross which arrived along with the first conquistadores.  Then it is time to visit the Korikancha temple, Inti God shrine, on which the Santo Domingo church was built.  According to the chronicles, this temple was completely covered in gold in Inca times. After this we will visit the Sacsayhuaman Archaeological Park to explore Q'enqo, the Puma shrine, and see the sacrificial altar embedded inside a rock cave; Tambomachay and its sacred fountains of life; Puca Pucará viewpoint and watchtower which guarded the city entrance and Sacsayhuaman, an impressive fortress of colossal dimensions with rocks that are up to 4 meters tall and surrounded by beautiful views blending together perfectly.  Stay in Cusco.

Day 3: Cusco/ Sacred Valley/ Cusco - (Breakfast & Lunch included)

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is waiting for you. On the way we will stop at Awanacancha, small complex to admire Andean camelids such as alpacas and llamas and learn from local inhabitants about traditional dyeing and knitting techniques. Later we will explore the Pisac Market  with enough free time to go around and buy handcrafts and if you feel like tasting something traditional, stop by the wood ovens for a delicious empanada or a piece of bread. 

Lunch at a local restaurant. 

In the afternoon, our tour continues to Ollantaytambo, a small town full of local color and inhabited since Inca times in which we will visit the main temple used as a fortress during the Inca resistance. Breathtaking views for amazing pictures. Stay in Cusco.

 

Day 4: Cusco/Wayllabamba - (Lunch and Dinner included)Transfer from the hotel to the train station. The train leaves on course to the area called kilometer 82, where we will meet up with our porters and gear. We begin our trek, escorted by the porters, through a semi arid region of crop fields and terraced hillsides, where archeological sites are scattered along the course of the Urubamba River. We will arrive at Llactapata, an Incan archeological site that always provides magnificent views of the mountains. After a rapid visit, we will say good-bye to the Urubamba Valley and continue onwards through the Kusichaca River Valley until reaching our first campsite: Huayllabamba (at roughly 3,000m)

Total number of kilometers 12 km

 Initial altitude 2750 M.T Final 3,000 M.T

Day 5: Wayllabamba/Pacaymayo  - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

After a delicious breakfast, we will begin our ascent to the Warmiwayñusca Pass (4200 m). A small flight of stone stairs will take us to the top of the pass that is dominated by the cold winds of the puna and the majestic vista of the surrounding mountains. From here, it is possible to see the path that we will descend to the Runkurakay ruins. At the end of a gorge, we will stop at a place called Pacaymayo (3600 m), our second camp.

Total walking hours 7:30 / 8:00 hrs

Total number of kilometers 13 km

    Initial altitude 3,000 M.T. Final 3,800 M.T

Day 6: Pacaymayo/Winaywayna - (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included)

We will depart from Pacaymayo along a short, zigzagging, ascending path that will take us to the circular ruins of Runkurakay. There is almost no sign of human life in this region where cloud forests and rugged mountains rule. After a break to catch our breath, we will start descending by way of a section of the Inka Trail in an excellent state of preservation. After passing through several segments where the pathway is perfectly paved with flagstones, we will reach the steps leading to the Sayacmarca ruins (3620 m). From here, the trail definitely moves off into the jungle, and so do we, continuing through bamboo and unca tree forests towards the ruins of Phuyupatamarca. The trail passes by Lake Seco and, after some ascents and descents, we will arrive at El Tunel, a natural cavity produced by a landslide but developed by the Incas. The Inca Trail, with its well defined borders, continues through moss covered hills. After crossing a small pass, we will see a steep flight of stairs and, at the bottom, the Phuyupatamarca ceremonial center (3650 m). As we walk down the trail, we will see the Urubamba Valley and River. The trail will take us to the lovely ruins of Wiñay Wayna (2650 m), the most important after Machu Picchu and our last campsite.

Total walking hours 06:00hrs

Total number of kilometers 15 km

  Initial altitude 3800 M.T Final 2,650 M.T

Day 7: Winaywayna/Cusco - (Breakfast included)

We will break camp early in the morning and head off towards the Inti Punku or Gateway of the Sun (2740 m), the last pass on the trail. From this point, Machu Picchu (2450 m) is a surreal and marvelous site. The rest of the day is set aside for visiting the city. Afterwards, we will board the train at the Aguas Calientes Station to return to Cusco. Transfer to the hotel.

Total walking hours 04:00hrs

Total number of kilometers 6 km

  Initial altitude 2650 M.T Final 2,400 M.T
