    Itinerary

    Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

    Day 1 - Join trip Cusco

    Our journey begins in Cusco, the old heart of the Inca Empire and the archaeological capital of the Americas. One of the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent, Cusco is imbued with an atmosphere of mystery and grandeur. The Spanish-style city of today, with its attractive pink tiled roofs, arcaded plazas and steep winding alleyways, stands upon tremendous Inca foundation stones, its links with the Inca Empire everywhere to be seen, from the stone walls that line the city streets, to the museums filled with artefacts and relics of a long dead people. After a chance to freshen up and meet with your local guide the rest of the afternoon is free to acclimatise and maybe gently begin to explore.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 2 - Walking tour of Cusco; morning free for acclimatisation

    This morning is at leisure to rest and acclimatise, you may want to visit one of Cusco's museums and enjoy the lively atmosphere of Plaza de Armas s (main square). In the afternoon we take a walking tour of Cusco taking in the grandeur of the city's more recent colonial past amongst the churches and galleries of the Plaza de Arma and learning about the incredible remains of Qoricancha, the most important temple of the Inca Empire dedicated to the Sun God Inti.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Day 3 - Visit to the colourful and vibrant Pisac market

    In the morning we leave Cusco and head for the stunningly beautiful setting of the Sacred Valley to visit the market town of Pisac, strategically located at the head of the Urubamba Valley. We spend time at the famous market before returning to Cusco for a late lunch. Today there is the option to go white water rafting in the Sacred Valley, this is a whole day excursion (not included).

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 4 - Commence Inca Trail; walk to Llaqtapata ruins

    This morning we drive to Ollantaytambo, an original Inca town. Here we have a short walking tour to stretch our legs, visiting a traditional house and our first view of Inca terracing. We continue by bus for another hour to reach KM82, the starting point for the classic Inca Trail. The trail was first explored by Hiram Bingham in 1911 and opened for walkers in 1970. The famous ruins of Machu Picchu are not the only historical remains within the area: many other interesting sites are hidden in places which can only be reached on foot, and have scarcely been explored.

    We meet our porters and support staff, beginning our trek after lunch. The route crosses the Urubamba river, following a wide dirt trail alongside the riverbank. The undulating path takes us into the Sacred Valley of the Incas to Llaqtapata (2,700m). Here we camp opposite the ruins of Llaqtapata, a spectacular spot with amazing night skies.

    Todays six kilometre walk is expected to take around two-and-a-half hours with an ascent of 100 metres.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 5 - Follow river to Wayllabamba village; continue to Llulluchapampa

    After a hearty breakfast we cross the river to visit the Llaqtapata Inca ruins before continuing with the trek. Today we follow the course of the Kusichaca river past small communities, crossing it to reach Wayllabamba, a quiet village of Inca origins and the last settlement on the route. After lunch we gradually ascend through the start of the cloud forest to Llulluchapampa (3,800m) which affords stunning views of the snowy peaks of Veronica (5,750m). Here we set up camp for the night; there is a well maintained toilet black at this site.

    Todays nine kilometre walk is expected to take around six hours with 1,080 metres ascent.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 6 - Cross 'Dead Woman's Pass' (4,200m).; hike through cloudforest to Phuyupatamarca

    Today is an earlier start as we trek over the Warmiwanusca (Dead Woman's) Pass to 4,200 metres. The two hour ascent is one of the more challenging sections of the trek, we take is slow and steady with many stops to admire the view and sunrise. After a rest and photo opportunity we descend along a stepped path to the valley of the Pacamayo river with its tropical vegetation. Here we break for brunch before beginning the ascent (mainly on steps) to the second pass of the day. We visit the ruins of Runkuraqay and then it's the final ascent to cross the Runkuraqay Pass (3,950m).

    After the pass it was a long gradual descent passing into the start of the main cloud forest to reach the bottom of the valley. The Sayacmarca ruins are visible on a rocky outcrop, they command an imposing view and have only one means of access, a narrow granite stairway. We cross the valley to reach the Sayacmarca campsite for a late lunch. From here the trail goes through cloud forest with vines, exotic flowers (among them orchids) and luxuriant trees, with views (if we are lucky) of the snowcapped peaks of Salkantay. We walk through an Inca tunnel and along a ridge above the Urubamba River to our campsite above the Phuyupatamarca ruins (3,579m). The campsite has amazing panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and down the valley towards Machu Picchu mountain.

    Todays 10 kilometre walk is expected to take around eight hours with 1,000 metres ascent and 630 metres descent.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Camping

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 7 - Arrive to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate

    Today is our final day walking along the Inca Trail. We say thanks and goodbye to our porters and begin our trek into Machu Picchu. We pass the Puyupatamarca ruins and spend the majority of the morning going down following stone paths and stairways, 80% of which are original Inca architecture. Coming out of the cloud forest we are greeted by the spectacular views down the valley, walking through the impressive Inca terraces at Intipata we reach our lunch stop at Winay-Wayna (2,591m). Those who wish can visit the ruins here, this Inca site is built into the steep hillside and like Machu Picchu, was abandoned for unknown reasons.

    Winding our way along the edge of the mountain we follow a wide path adorned with wild flowers and orchids to we take the final steps up to reach Inti Punku - the Gate of the Sun. passing through there is a sudden and fantastic view of the Lost City itself, Machu Picchu, set in a grandiose landscape that amazes all spectators. We walk down through the site and then take the pubic bus down the mountainside to our hotel in the town of Aguas Calientes situated on the valley floor below Machu Picchu.

    Todays eight kilometre walk is expected to take around six hours with 1,000 metres descent.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 8 - Revisit Machu Picchu; return to Ollantaytambo by train before continuing by bus to Cusco

    Our final morning is spent at Machu Picchu, probably the most astounding feat of engineering in all of ancient America. Temples, stairways, palaces and gabled stone dwellings are scattered everywhere, testifying to the energy and ingenuity of the builders. We have a guided tour with our local guide then have some free time to explore the site further for as long as you wish before taking the bus back down to Aquas Calientes.

    It is also possible to climb the steep peaks of either Machu Picchu Mountain or Huayna Picchu Mountain to look down on the citadel. Machu Picchu Mountain is a 700m climb from the top of the citadel. There are cobbled stairs all the way up with a few eye-opening drops in some parts, and the round-trip takes about tow and half to three hours. Huayna Picchu Mountain is only 350m, half the size of Machu Picchu Mountain, but much steeper. There are many more sheer drops, and it is definitely not suitable for someone with a fear of heights. For those who fancy doing the one hour climb, you'll be rewarded with world-beating views of Machu Picchu, and the feeling that you're standing on a precipice at the top of the world.

    These climbs must be pre-paid at time of booking. If you change your passport between your time of booking and prior to travel please take your original passport with you. Those doing one of the optional climbs will take the first bus back up the Machu Picchu to begin the climb at 7am after which you will meet up with the rest of the group to take the guided tour.

    In the afternoon we get the train to Ollantaytambo, located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and then return to the historic town of Cusco by bus. Depending on the time of the train, you may have a free afternoon in Aquas Calientes, where there are many restaurants and cafes and a large covered market.

    Day 9 - Fly to Puerto Maldonado, transfer to Amazon lodge

    The Inca Trail Trek part of this trip ends this morning. Those doing the Amazon extension transfer to Cusco airport for the short flight to Puerto Maldonado, which is located in the Southern Amazon area of Peru. (Your tour leader stays in Cusco). The Amazon Basin covers two fifths of South America and is shared between many countries including Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru. Most of the area is covered by rainforest - the largest rainforest and the most bio-diverse environment in the world. Sixty percent of Peru lies within the Amazon Basin, the greatest area of Amazon Rainforest after Brazil.

    Today we transfer to the airport for a short flight to Puerto Maldonado, located in the Southern Amazon area of Peru (your Tour Leader stays in Cusco). You can leave your main luggage in Puerto Maldonado and just take with you what you need for the next few days. The Amazon comprises 60% of Peru and the Peruvian Amazon is the second largest section of the Amazon Rainforest after Brazil. The Amazon basin covers two fifths of South America over many countries including Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Venezuela and it is the most bio-diverse environment in the world. Most of the basin is covered by the rainforest, which is the largest rainforest in the world.

    We travel along the Tambopata River by motorised canoe (approximately 40 minutes) and check into our Amazon lodge. We have a short stop at the lodge for a buffet lunch before our local guide takes us on an exploration of the jungle trails surrounding the Field Station, discovering the tropical trees, medicinal plants, insects, butterflies and other animals we see en route. In the evening, we have a night float along the Madre De Dios River in search of the wildlife that surface during night time such as capybaras, white caimans and nightjars.

    The lodge is comfortable but as it is in a remote location, the electricity is provided by a generator and is only available for certain hours of the day.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Lodge

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

    Day 10 - In Amazon Jungle; Canopy walk and Sandoval Lake

    We spend the morning on the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, which is a 1129ft system of 2 observation towers, 8 platforms and 7 hanging bridges 100ft above the ground. The walkway is designed to perform scientific research of the ecosystems inhabiting the rainforest canopy, and gives us an unobstructed view of the wildlife and birds.

    During the afternoon, we take 30 minute boat ride, entering the territory of the Tambopata- Reserve. We will trek 5km through the dense vegetation of the tropical rainforest looking out for snakes, monkeys and birds. Our destination is Sandoval Lake. Numerous species of animals live near the lake, keep your eyes out for kingfishers, cormorants, squirrel monkeys, and capuchin monkeys. At the lake itself we may see giant river otters, black caimans and piranhas. This is also the habitat of the giant arapaima, a fish of more than 2.5m, weighing in at more than 200kg.

    Day 11 - In Amazon Jungle; boat ride and Inkaterra experience

    This morning, we take a 20 minute boat ride to the river island near our lodge, a large sandbank at the shores of the Madre De Dios River. With our Local Guide, we will walk across the island to explore the floodplains that provides the island an ecosystem with a great diversity of birds such as the Amazonian umbrella bird, one of the Amazon's most sought after species by birdwatchers.

    We continue on to visit the Inkaterra Association's Bio Orchard, where organic native goods are cultivated such as palms, vegetables and fruit. We learn the diverse phases of sustainable horticulture, the preparation of recycled compost, sowing and harvesting vegetables, fine herbs and tropical plants, using natural fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. The lodge is working as sustainably as possible, to help local communities protect their surroundings, and using the forest for good.

    During the afternoon, our Local Guide will show us the permanent plot area for rainforest restoration and conservation, and we'll learn about the survival mechanisms of the rainforest, exploring the meanings of the 19 native palm species.

    We'll take a night walk through the jungle, listening to the sounds of the birds, mammals, insects and amphibians that wander the forest at night, using the expertise of our local guide to try and spot them.

    Day 12 - Early morning boat to Puerto Maldonado and end trip at airport

    Our Amazon adventure comes to an end today after breakfast and we will travel by motorised canoe back to Puerto Maldonado, before transferring to the airport. If you prefer you can end your trip at the office in Puerto Maldonado and arrange a taxi transfer to the airport yourself at a time that better suits your own itinerary.

    Clothing


    In the highlands conditions can be dry and sunny during the day but bring warm clothing such as a warm fleece, thermal underwear, warm hat and gloves. These will be needed when the temperatures drop, especially at night when temperatures can drop dramatically. Lightweight waterproofs are also essential. You may also wish to bring your swimsuit.

    Thermals:
    Useful for walking when cold, around camp and much more practical (and warmer) to sleep in than pyjamas.

    Trainers or Trekking sandals:
    Useful around camp, in towns and when travelling. Waterproof sandals are ideal for rafting.

    Socks:
    Use good quality socks that you are used to walking in, plus liner socks if you are used to these.

    Waterproofs:
    Breathable waterproofs not only protect against rain and wind, but also stop you from overheating.

    Thick jumper/fleece jacket:
    A thick jumper or fleece jacket is necessary as nights can be very cold at altitude, especially in their winter months (June to September). Make sure that your waterproof jacket is loose enough to wear over your sweater or fleece.

    T-shirts:
    We recommend t-shirts made from wicking materials as these keep you drier and warmer.

    Shorts:
    Shorts can be comfortable to walk in but carry long trousers with you in case of strong sun or you feel cold. Remember we shall be passing through the occasional remote village and short shorts (especially on women) can give offence to the local inhabitants.

    Gloves and Hat:
    Essential around camp in the morning, and in the evening, at higher altitudes.

    For you jungle extension:
    Expect warm and humid conditions. However there may also be heavy rain showers. (It tends to be cooler and drier between May and October, the winter)

    Bring light clothing (cotton or wicking material) - Long sleeve shirts and long trousers are best when walking through jungle, and a light weight rainjacket. It is worth also bringing some warmer clothes, particularly between May and September, in case of cool weather.

    Footwear

    We recommend you bring well broken in and comfortable walking boots with ankle support. We do not recommend borrowing or renting boots. It is a good idea to carry your boots in your hand luggage on international flights or wear them - should your luggage be delayed, your boots are the one thing which will be irreplaceable. If you are rafting bring shoes that you don't mind getting wet.

    Luggage

    20kg

    Luggage: On tour

    Bring one main piece of baggage and a daypack.

    Main luggage:
    Your main bag should be lockable as this will be left in storage at the hotel in Cusco whilst on the trek, and also in a locked room in Puerto Maldonado when visiting the jungle lodge

    Trek Kit Bag (provided by Explore at the hotel in Cusco):
    Before leaving Cusco there is time to re-organise your luggage. Your trek luggage, including sleeping bag, should be packed into the kit bag which is to be carried by the porters. The weight limit for this is 7kg, advice on how to pack will be given at the trek briefing.

    Small Rucksack/Daypack:
    During the course of a trekking day, you do not have access to the luggage, which is being carried for you by the porters. In any mountain region the weather can change rapidly and you must be equipped for this eventuality. Your daypack should be large enough to carry your day things including: waterproofs, fleece, long trousers (if walking in shorts), warm hat and gloves, sun hat, suncream, water bottle, tissues and your packed lunch. Camera equipment can be heavy so think carefully when deciding what to take. A rucksack with 20 or 25 litres capacity is usually sufficient.

    Jungle bag (you can use the kit bag provided for the trek):
    You will only be able to take this bag and your day pack with you to the jungle lodge. There will be time on arrival at the port to re pack enough for fours days including clothes, toiletries, shoes, torch, suncream and insect repellent.

    Equipment


    For your trek;
    Remember to bring: torch, water bottle, insect repellent, suncream (at least factor 30), lip salve, good quality sunglasses and sunhat. You may also wish to bring binoculars and your own sleeping bag.

    Sleeping Bag: This may be down or synthetic, but should be 4-season. A cotton liner helps to keep your bag clean. You do not need a foam mat as thermarests are provided. It is possible to hire an appropriate down sleeping bag for the trek locally (US$ 20).

    Personal Equipment On Trek
    Trekking poles: Trekking poles are recommended. Please note metal tipped trekking poles are NOT permitted so please ensure they have rubber/plastic tips

    Water Bottle: Water along the trail must never be considered as drinkable. The camp staff provide purified water each day with which to fill your bottle or camelback. Your bottle should hold at least two litre and be resuable as disposable plastic bottles are not allowed on the trail. Metal bottles can also double up as hot water bottles when hot water is available.

    Torch/Batteries/Bulb: A small torch is essential for finding things in your tent, visiting the 'toilet' in the night etc. Often a head torch is the most practical option as it allows you to have both hands free. Remember to bring spare batteries.

    Toiletries: Only bring essential toiletries such as toothbrush/paste, soap, toilet roll and a small towel. Wet wipes are great for a quick clean up in your tent.

    Personal First Aid Kit: On each trek a first aid kit is carried but you should have your own blister kit, supply of plasters, pain relief etc. for you own use.

    Cloth bags: Single use plastic bags are not allowed on the trail.

    The following equipment list is provided by Explore for the trek:

    Accommodation notes


    We avoid the crowds on our three night trek, and camp away from the main campsites. Two-man tents are provided with plenty of room for two people and bags. There is also a dining tent and a toilet tent. The trek is fully supported by our team of porters who set up and take down the tents, and prepare our meals. They also carry water and all bags except daysacks, under strict guidelines.On day seven your guesthouse has en-suite twin rooms. A single tent is available on request prior to departure costing £40, please discuss with your sales consultant (limited availability).

    The guest accommodation at Inkaterra Field Station although simple, is built to a high standard. Built within the Inkaterra Ecological Reserve, an area of over 10,000 hectares of virgin forest, the Field Station was originally set up as a research centre for scientists and has now opened its doors for travellers to experience the Amazon rainforest. The Field Station is ran by, and is the headquarters for, the Inkaterra Association, an NGO funded by Inkaterra's ecotourism activities which is dedicated to supporting, fieldwork, biodiversity research and conservation.

    The communal area and dining room is a wooden structure with a high roof, thatched in traditional style with palm fronds. The Cabanas rooms are a short walk from here and are also built in local wood, blending in with the surrounding forest. They each have an outdoor terrace with seating and are all furnished with crafted wooden furniture and, en-suite bathrooms equipped with a cold (lukewarm) water shower, basin with running water and flushing toilet. There is also a safety box for storing valuables and food. The design of the buildings allows the rooms to be naturally ventilated - the rooms are elevated off the ground and have high unsealed thatched roofs that encourage air-circulation. Good mosquito nets cover the beds (which are well off the floor) and there are ceiling fans. Electricity is provided by a generator twice a day so Wi-Fi and room lights can be used, batteries charged, etc. but a strong torch is also required. Meals are all included during your stay and combine delicious local produce; lunch and dinner are served in the communal area self-serve style. Boiled, filtered drinking water is also available at all times, as is tea and coffee. Fruit juices are provided with breakfast, and beers, Pisco and soft drinks are also available to buy at the bar.

    The Inkaterra Explorer guides all have a recognised national guiding qualification and most are from the local area. During your stay they will help you explore the primary forest around the lodge, identify animals and plants, and learn about the biodiversity and local way of life. Keep your eyes open as you travel around by boat or walk through the forest as there is abundant wildlife in the area around the lodge.

    Joining Tour Abroad

    Customers booked on the ‘Land Only’ arrangements will now receive a Free Transfer, provided you arrive and depart on the tour only itinerary start and end dates. The transfers will be from the Explore designated airport or train station to the joining point of your tour, and then back from the ending point to the designated airport or train station. The exception to this rule is customers who are booked on a tour where the joining and ending point is at the designated airport or train station.  

    Free transfers are not available for Self-Guided, Polar, Tailormade or Tours for Churches customers.

    If you are not eligible for the Free Transfer then you will need to make your own way through to the joining and ending point. On a majority of our tours Explore will be able to provide a private transfer at an additional cost. Please ask for a quote at the time of booking.

    Insurance

    It is a condition of booking with Explore that you have adequate valid travel insurance. It is your responsibility to arrange appropriate travel insurance and ensure you have read and understood the full terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for all activities you intend to undertake whilst on the tour, including all optional activities. Your Insurance Policy must fully cover you for medical expenses and emergency repatriation to your home country. Please ensure your policy includes medical emergency helicopter evacuation in the event of illness or injury and covers the entire duration of your holiday. If you are trekking at altitude please ensure that there is no upper altitude limit which may limit or exclude cover for your trip. The cost of many of our Polar Voyages will exceed the capped amount covered by standard insurance premiums and you will be required to pay an additional premium to cover the full value of your trip. Please ensure that you are covered for the full amount of your holiday cost, as insufficient cover could invalidate a claim under the policy. Medical and repatriation insurance cover is not mandatory for UK residents who are travelling on trips within the United Kingdom.

    Flight Information

    You are able to book this tour on a 'land only' basis or as a ‘flight inclusive’ package. Your flight inclusive package will be fully protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) ATOL protection scheme.

      

    Booking a flight inclusive package with Explore

    We have a good selection of flights not only from London but from many regional airports around the UK allowing us to compare fares between scheduled carriers as well as low cost and charter airlines. Our dedicated flights team will match the best flight options to your arrival and departure airport.

    On our website we display a UK flight inclusive package guide price which is generally based on a London departure. To avoid paying supplements or to secure your preferred flight option, we recommend booking as early as possible, especially for peak travel dates.

    Maximum altitude (m)

    4200

    Altitude information

    This trip goes to an altitude where there is a risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), a common and usually harmless condition caused by reduced air pressure and a lower concentration of oxygen. Whilst the itinerary has been specifically designed to allow your body to acclimatise gradually, the speed of onset and severity - as well as the height at which AMS develops can vary greatly between individuals; being physically fit affords no special protection. If symptoms occur while on your trip you must let your Explore Leader know immediately. For further advice when travelling at altitude we recommend visiting the medical advice website of 'Medex' and downloading their information booklet: http://medex.org.uk/medex_book/english_version.php

    Travellers with heart or lung conditions, anaemia, asthma, high blood pressure, or taking the contraceptive pill must seek the advice of their GP and specifically mention the maximum altitude the trip reaches (please refer to Tour Essentials box on front page of your Trip Notes). Please take the trip notes to your medical appointment so that your doctor has the full details of your trip.

    You must have adequate travel insurance for your trip. Please ensure that your insurance policy covers you to the maximum altitude indicated above. If you have Explore insurance you will be covered to this altitude.

    Included activities


    Additional notes for trips that include the Inca Trail
    1. In order to regulate the number of people walking on the Inca Trail it is necessary to buy an Inca Trail Pass specific to the days that you wish to travel. There are 200 passes per day for tourists, the remainder are for guides and porters.
    2. If you are travelling on an Explore trip, Explore buy the necessary permit on your behalf. This is non-refundable and can't be refunded or transferred after you have confirmed your booking.
    3. Passes sell out quickly, so we would urge that you book your tour well ahead of your intended travel date. New Inca Passes are released in early October of each year, so ideally we would recommend that you book your trip at least 6 months ahead and by December for the following year where possible.
    4. Please note that due to the way the passes are distributed in October although a tour departure may be 'Guaranteed' we are unable to guarantee individual Inca Trail passes until we have confirmation that the passes have been purchased. On booking we will be able to tell you the date that your pass should be confirmed, and will contact you immediately in the (unusual) event that it is not. Because of this we would recommend that you either book your flights through Explore or ensure that your tickets are flexible / refundable.
    5. In order to buy your pass we will need to take an additional £125 per person non refundable deposit and require your: name as per passport, passport number, date of birth and nationality. If you change passport before travelling it will be necessary to provide a copy of both passports in advance of travelling and to carry a copy of your previous passport with you.
    6. The Peruvian authorities may change the regulations for the Inca Trail Pass at any time. In the event of this we will inform you as soon as possible.

    Why book this trip

    Walking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the best ways to discover the culture and history of Peru. Avoid the crowds our three night Inca Trail trek, designed so that we stay on quieter campsites. Spacious tents are provided and the trek is fully supported by our excellent cook and team of porters who set up and take down the tents, provide water and carry all bags except day-sacks. Our porters are from the local villages, so that the surrounding communities benefit from your visit, and we abide by the strict guidelines regulating both their working conditions and care of the Inca Trail. The Inca Trail is doable for anybody that leads a reasonably active life, you can take as long as you need and stop to take in all the marvellous views and Inca ruins along the route.

    Explore the rainforest from our eco lodge in the Peruvian Amazon and learn how the biodiversity of the area and the surrounding communities are being protected. Built within the Inkaterra Ecological Reserve, an area of virgin forest, the Inkaterra Field Station is ran by the Inkaterra Association, an NGO which is dedicated to supporting, fieldwork, biodiversity research and conservation.
