Additional Information

Offering an unrivalled combination of history and dramatic scenery, the ancient Inca Trail winds its way from the powerful Urubamba River, across mountain passes and through cloud forests, passing several crumbling fortresses before reaching the lost city of Machu Picchu. This itinerary is specifically designed to maximise the time spent at Machu Picchu with an early morning tour of the ruins, quieter at that hour before day trippers and other trekkers arrive.  *Inca Trail Permits:* An Inca Trail permit is required to walk the Inca Trail. These are strictly limited and are highly sought after, therefore we strongly recommend booking at least 6-8 months in advance to avoid disappointment. On dates where Inca Trail permits have sold out we can offer the spectacular remote  Moonstone">https://www.exodus.co.uk/peru-holidays/moonstone-trek-option">Moonstone Trek in its place – please enquire for details.  This itinerary has changed significantly from 13 June 2020 - for the itinerary for departures from 13 June 2020, please click  here ">https://www.exodus.co.uk/peru-holidays/walking-trekking/inca-trail/tpt-2...
