This hike is accessible for all ages, and doesn't require you to be in top physical shape. Since your one day hike of 5-6 hours takes you to the town of Aguas Calientes (after of 3-4 Hrs of gentle walk we will reach to Wiñaywayna Inca town on actual Inca trail the nicest and bigest Inca complex which surprise a lot of visitors even more than Machupicchu... , you won´t camp, or carry backpacks only your personal day-pack as we will stay in a Hostal in Aguas Calientes. Private rooms, it is recommended for those having less time or those with less experience in altitude. for families, group of friends or couples.

Short on time but want to experience the Inca Trail? Then consider our short 2 Day/1 Night Inca Trail trek, which involves a walk of 16 km to Machu Picchu, passing through spectacular landscapes of mountains and cloud forest. You’ll also visit Inca archaeological sites along the route, such as Chachabamba, Choquesuysuy and the amazing Winaywayna Complex. Winaywayna, located at 2,700 meters, features impressive agricultural terraces, temples, shrines, and ritual water channels. Nature will also be all around you: hummingbirds, quetzals and cockerels.
Then, of course, you’ll have a full-day tour of Machu Picchu on Day 2, ably guided by our expert guides, with plenty of time to explore the site on your own, to take photographs and contemplate this magical place…
