Join us on the Inca Trail in 2014
With £100 off our Inca Trail & Machu Picchu spring trips, and Inca Trail permits normally released in January, now is the perfect time to secure your place on one of the World's most classic treks.
Traversing the foothills of Peru's Cordillera Vilcabamba provides an unforgettably dramatic trek to reach the fabulous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. Crossing three high passes, the trek follows sections of stone pathway created by the Incas of South America four centuries ago and provides tremendous views of spectacular forested valleys and of the snow-capped peaks of the Andes. Greeted by increasingly impressive Inca ruins such as Sayacmarca and Winay Huayna, you will finally arrive at the Sun Gate, the gateway to the world-famous lost city of the Incas. With blue glacial lakes, cloud forest, orchids, hummingbirds, magnificent Inca settlements and stone-paved trails, there is no other short trek in the world that offers such a variety of experiences.
To prevent damage to the ancient trail the Peru authorities only issue 500 permits per day. Support staff are included within this figure; meaning only 200 permits are allocated for trekkers! The remaining 300 permits are issued to cooks, porters and guides required each day. With the demand for spaces being so intense it is therefore important to plan ahead. Permits are normally released in January so the advise is to book as early as possible to guarantee your departure of choice.
Our 8-day Inca Trail and Machu Picchu trek is now even better value at just £895 land only in the springtime, that's a reduction of £100 on all our March and April departures. With 2 departures a week there are plenty to choose from!
