OUR BEST SELLING TREK

LOOKING FOR AN ADVENTURE TRIP OF A LIFETIME? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE

Not sure which trek to choose? The 5 Day Salkantay Trek is our most popular package. Like the Inca Trail, it gets you to Machu Picchu. But the journey is far more exciting! You will hike through mountains and jungles, alongside rivers and crystal-clear lakes, all the while enjoying a luxury camping experience in our Sky Camp, Andean Huts, and Jungle Domes.

Classic Salkantay Trek

5 Days Trek to Machu Picchu

The Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in Cusco and it is undoubtedly the best alternative route to experience the original Inca paths.

This trek takes you through many different types of landscapes. You will have the best opportunity to see the typical Andean landscape up to the snowcapped mountains, down to the tropical forests and finally even venture into the dense jungle.

If you are thinking to do a hiking trip to Machu Picchu and you want to be off the beaten path, close to the Andean communities...

Good Operators

I did 3 tours with them: rainbow mountain, salcantay trekking and sacred valley. All of them were good organized, we had skilled guides and the prices was fair. Thank you for those lovely experiences.

5D4N Salkantay Trail

I recently did the 5D4N trek and everything was incredible. Our guide, Simba, was the absolute best! His energy kept everyone motivated, his laugh kept everyone smiling, and his morning wake up calls got us all going! If I could bring Simba on all future treks I would!
