The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu

Experience The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu in style. This 7-day lodge to lodge trekking adventure will take you on a historic section of Inca trail through 15 different eco-systems. On the way you traverse a mountain pass over 15,000 feet, explore villages where locals still maintain age-old traditions and re-discover the mystical beauty of Machu Picchu, the crown jewel of the Inca Empire.
Each day’s trek ends with a hot shower in a cozy lodge, complemented by a massage or a dip in an outdoor jacuzzi, followed by a gourmet meal with select wines and all provided with highly personalized service by local staff. The Salkantay adventure goes beyond deluxe lodges and a great trek - it is a unique opportunity to experience ancient history in the Land of the Incas, as well as exotic flora and fauna, all in the company of new friends and like-minded souls.
