The Classic Inca Trail is Peru's number one trek and one of the most well-known and popular treks in the world. Trekking along original paved Inca pathways you get the chance to visit a variety of fascinating Inca sites and take in the beautiful scenery of the Machu Picchu national park with it's high peaks and the enigmatic cloud forest.
The Short Inca Trail is a fantastic option for those who don't have the time or desire to hike the full length of the Inca Trail. With beautiful scenery, a wide variety of flora and fauna on display and a visit to the Inca Trail's most beautiful site (Wiñay Wayna), you get to enjoy the all the best bits of the Inca Trail condensed in to a one day walk.
The Salkantay Trek takes you away from the crowds of the Inca Trail and brings you to one of the new Wonders of the World (Machu Picchu); passing through the stunning high peaks of the Andes and descending to the lowland cloud forest it gives you a taste of all Cusco has to offer.
This trek is an excellent alternative for those who want to get off the ‘beaten track’ and have an insight into authentic communities whilst being surrounded by stunning mountain, lake and valley landscapes. Starting from the small village of Pumahuanca in the Sacred Valley and passing through several traditional, colourful villages you'll have the opportunity to meet the locals and learn about their culture.
The Huchuy Qosco trek is a really nice and not too challenging option that combines nature, original Inca Trails a community visit and a guided tour of the little known Inca site of Huchuy Qosco. Taking you off the beaten track you get away from the all the crowds of the better known treks but still get to enjoy all the amazing things Peru has to offer.
The Choquequirao trek is by far one of the least appreciated routes available; offering beautiful scenery, a wide variety of flora and fauna and a visit to one of the great Inca cities it provides something for everybody. You also don't have to miss out on visiting Machu Picchu as a trip there can easily be added on as a seperate visit after you have finished the trek;
