Itinerary

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

Day 1 - Join trip Lima

Arrive to Lima and check-in at hotel. Afternoon city tour of Lima. Lima, Peru's capital, was founded in 1535 AD by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. It was built on the Pacific coast, by the Rimac River and close to the natural harbour of Callao, on land that had already been inhabited for thousands of years. Today Lima is a modern city, but there are obvious reminders of its ancient and colonial past. It is also gaining a reputation as a culinary centre.

Day 2 - Fly to Juliaca; drive to Puno

We fly up to Juliaca on the high Altiplano after a short city tour in the morning. On arrival in Puno we will take a short drive to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world at an elevation of 3860m, and also the legendary birthplace of the Inca civilisation. The local Aymara, Quechua and Uros people have larger lungs, hearts and spleens, and blood that is particularly rich in red corpuscles, so have adapted to high altitude living. We drive to our hotel in Puno, a lake side town, and relax and acclimatise for the rest of the day.

Accommodation: Qelqatani Hotel(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 3 - Visit Sillustani pre-Inca burial ground. Explore around Lake Titicaca

This morning we drive to the 'chullpas' (funeral towers) of Sillustani, which probably date from the 14th century. They are positoned on a peninsula overlooking a lagoon amongst stunning highland scenery. There is also the opportunity to visit a local farmers house (optional). In the afternoon we explore the small town of Chucuito, visiting the colonial churches, Inca fertilty temple and the Totora Museum.

Accommodation: Qelqatani Hotel(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 4 - Free day. Optional visit to Uros and Taquile Islands

Today is free to explore the local area. We have the option to take a boat trip on Lake Titicaca to explore the floating reed islands, home to the Uros people who live on the lake itself. Their islands are made from totora, a reedlike papyrus that grows in the shallows and is used in most aspects of their life, including the construction of their boats and homes. We then continue to the less visited island of Taquile which has preserved much of its Inca and pre-Inca heritage and the islanders still speak the language of the Inca - Runa Simi or Quechua.

Accommodation: Qelqatani Hotel(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 5 - Travel through the Andes to Cusco

Today we follow the legendary route taken by the first Inca ruler - Manco Capac - on his way to find Cusco. Driving up to the northern limit of the Altiplano we cross Las Raya pass (4,335m) and descend to Cusco visiting the Inca temple ruins at Raqchi en route. Depending on time, those who wish may visit the colonial church at Andahuaylillas. The scenery is desolate but magnificent and we may spot flocks of llamas and alpacas grazing on the windswept pastures.

Day 6 - Visit to Sacsayhuaman and Pisac market

The old capital of the Inca Empire survives only in its ruins, imbued with an atmosphere of mystery and grandeur. The Spanish-style city of today's Cusco, with its attractive pink tiled roofs, arcaded plazas and steep winding alleyways, stands upon tremendous Inca foundation stones. The interlocking stones, assembled so carefully that a knife blade cannot be forced between the multi-sided joints, were highly functional as well as beautiful - they are earthquake-proof! During our stay, we plan to visit the remarkable market at Pisac, perhaps the most famous indigenous market in Peru. We will also visit Cusco's temple-citadel Sacsayhuaman which broods high above the town, its huge, zigzagging stone walls broken into 66 sharply projecting angles to catch attackers in a withering crossfire - It took 20,000 conscripted workers toiling for 90 years to finish this fortress. We also plan a walking tour of the lovely city of Cusco to see important Inca monuments, such as the Inca wall of Hatunrumiyoc with its famous twelve-sided stone. The stone, measuring some 5 feet across, has the typical bevelled joints which create the patterns of light and shadow on Inca walls.

Day 7 - Commence Inca Trail. Walk to Llaqtapata ruins

We drive to Km 82, stopping at the Inca site of Ollantaytambo. The major highlight of the trip is without doubt the trek along the 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. Our trek starts by crossing the Urubamba river, then follow its rapids down the Sacred Valley of the Incas to Llaqtapata (2,700m). Here we camp below the ruins of Llactapata. Todays 6km walk is expected to take around 2.5hrs with an ascent of 100m

Accommodation: Llactapata Camp(or similar)

Simple Camping
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 8 - Follow river to Wayllabamba village. Continue to Llulluchapampa

Following the course of the Kusichaca river the trail leads to Wayllabamba, a quiet village of Inca origins and the last settlement on the route. We continue to Llulluchapampa (3,800m) which affords stunning views of the snowy peaks around us. Here we set up camp for the night. Todays 12kms walk is expected to take around 6hrs with 1080m ascent.

Accommodation: Llulluchapampa Camp(or similar)

Day 9 - Cross 'Dead Woman's Pass' (4,200m). Through cloudforest to Phuyupatamarca

Today we trek over the Warmiwanusca (Dead Woman) Pass (4,200m), to the valley of the Pacamayo river with its tropical vegetation. We then cross the Runkuraqay Pass (3,950m). Here the selva (jungle) becomes visible on the slopes of the mountains. Sayacmarca ruins are on a rocky promontory. They command an imposing view and have only one means of access, a narrow granite stairway. Our trail goes through cloud forest with vines, exotic flowers (among them orchids) and luxuriant trees, then on through an Inca tunnel and along a ridge above the Urubamba river to the lovely Phuyupatamarca ruins (3,579m). The views of the Urubamba and (if we are lucky) the snowcapped peaks of Veronica (5,750m) and Salkantay make these ruins one of the most beautiful places on the trail. We set up camp nearby. Todays 15km walk is expected to take around 9hrs with 1000m ascent and 630m descent.

Accommodation: Phuyupatamarka Camp(or similar)

Simple Camping
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 10 - Arrive to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate

We descend to Winay-Wayna ruins (2,591m), a small Inca city which, like Machu Picchu, was abandoned for unknown reasons. Then from Inti Punku - the Gate of the Sun - 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, then travel down to our simple accommodation in the town of Aguas Calientes situated on the valley floor below Machu Picchu. Todays 12km walk is expected to take around 6hrs with 10o0m descent.

Accommodation: El Santuario Hotel(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 11 - Revisit Machu Picchu. Return to Ollantaytambo by train. Continue 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 Explore Leader then have some free time to explore further. 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 2.5-3 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 1 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 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. 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.

Day 13 - Fly to Puerto Maldonado. Travel to lodge by minibus and canoe

The Heights of Machu Picchu part of the 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. On arrival in Puerto Maldonado you will be met by a representative of Nape Lodge. First you, and any other lodge guests, will be taken to the lodge office in the town. Here you can sort your luggage so that you only take what you need to the jungle. (Your main luggage can be left in a locked room at the office). You then travel by minibus to the community town of Infierno, this is mainly along unmade roads and it takes approximately an hour to reach the small port outside the town. From here you take a covered motorised canoe for approximately 30 - 40 minutes to Nape Lodge. Your guide will give you a typical jungle lunch to eat en route. The lodge is a short walk from the river bank. Below is the usual itinerary for clients arriving to Nape Lodge but this may vary depending on local conditions and circumstances. A guide from the lodge will accompany you on all your excursions. On arrival, after a drink and being shown to your room, you will take your first walk into the local jungle. Here, close to the lodge a member of the local community (through a translator) explains how the Ese Eja made their bows and arrows for hunting - Although hunting in this area is now restricted, it is still part of their culture. You also get the opportunity to try aiming at a cloth target with a traditional bow if you wish. There is then time to relax and acclimatise to the local humidity. After dinner you will return to the boat and search in the dark for caiman along the river banks and in the water - caiman eyes show red in torch light making them easier to spot. In this area there are mainly white caiman. If you are lucky you will also see some of the other nocturnal animals that roam the river banks.

Day 14 - Visit parrot clay lick and Tres Chimbadas Lago. Take a jungle night walk

This morning after an early breakfast you will travel by boat a short distance along the river to a local clay lick - a small clay cliff where macaws, parrots and other birds come to feed. It is thought that the salt from the clay detoxifies the fruit diet of the birds. You may be lucky enough to see the macaws circling above the site and then coming down to eat. They do this at several times in the day and are often at the site for 20 to 25 minutes - It can be very noisy. Continuing along the river for approximately 20 minutes, the boat then docks at a small jetty on the other side of the river to the lodge. As you follow the path through forest to Tres Chimbadas Lago, an oxbow lake, keep your eyes and ears open particularly for macaws and the sounds of approaching monkeys. At the lake itself common sights include the striking and noisy hoatzin bird. There is also a short cruise on the lake in a local style catamaran and if luck is on your side you may also see black caiman and river otters. On returning to the lodge there is time to relax before lunch. In the afternoon you will be taken on a tour of an area close to the lodge known as the 'medicine garden'. Here you will learn from the local shaman (or another member of the community) through a translator, about how these plants are used to treat illnesses. You may be invited to try some of the remedies. Please note that Herbal remedies can have side effects and may interfere with certain prescription medication therefore you do so at your own risk. After dark you will be taken on a night walk along one of the lodge's trails. Your guide will know where to look for the insects, frogs, bats and nocturnal birds that come out at night. If you are in the right place at the right time you may also see some nocturnal mammals including the night monkey.

Day 15 - Hike through jungle to mammal clay lick. Learn about local exotic fruits

An hour's walk from Nape Lodge is a mammal clay lick. As with the parrots and macaws, some mammals eat clay from certain areas - however they are much more reserved about this and less predictable. Animals known to use this clay lick included peccaries, deer, agouti and tapir. On arrival you will settle down to observe the spot quietly from a distance and hope to be rewarded. On the way to and from the clay lick your guide will be looking out for other birds, animals and plant species of interest. After lunch you will visit a local organic fruit farm down river from the lodge. It is owned by a family from the Infierno community who grow a variety of tropical fruit and vegetables - many of which you will experience over your time at Nape Lodge. The family will explain through a translator how they grow their crops in a sustainable way, and introduce you to some produce you may never have heard of. You will also gain an insight into local life. As the farm is beside rainforest you may also see and hear wildlife such as parrots close by.

Day 16 - Tour ends Puerto Maldonado airport

Your Amazon adventure comes to an end today after breakfast and you travel back to Puerto Maldonado by covered motorised canoe and minibus. Once in the town you will collect your luggage from the lodge office and then head to the airport where your trip ends. (If you prefer you can end your trip at the lodge office in Puerto Maldonado and arrange a taxi transfer, at your own expense, to the airport at a time that better suits your own itinerary. The office is a short taxi ride from the town, and about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport).

Clothing

For your trek: 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 the summer months. 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

For your trek bring one main piece of baggage and a daypack. For your jungle experience you will also need a sturdy bag suitable for carrying four days clothes, etc. Main luggage: Your main bag should be lockable as this will be left in storage in Cusco whilst on the trek, and also in a locked room in Puerto Maldonado when visiting the jungle lodge Trek Kit Bag (provided): Before leaving Cusco there is time to re-organise your luggage. Your trek luggage, including sleeping bag, should be packed into the kit bag to be carried by the porters. The weight limit for this is 7kg but you will probably find that you do not need this much. 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, sweater, 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: This should be a strong bag suitable for carrying clothes, toiletries, shoes, etc for four days e.g. a waterproof duffle bag or rucksack.

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. Your bottle should hold at least one litre. 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 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 a blister kit, supply of plasters, pain relief etc. for you own use. The following equipment list is provided by Explore for the trek: \bullet 2-person tents \bullet Dining tent \bullet Thermarest sleeping mat \bullet Stools and table For your jungle experience bring: Suncream ,sunhat and sunglasses Jungle formula insect repellent Good torch and spare batteries for night walks and when the generator is not on. Small backpack for walks and boat trips Good camera with zoom, spare battery and memory cards Binoculars (optional)

Tipping

Explore leader
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Explore Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. Accordingly, you should allow at least US$ 45 for tipping. In order to make things easier for you, the Explore Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the trip. It is customary to tip our porters, cooks and trail guide at the end of the trek, although this is entirely at your discretion.

Accommodation notes

Booking a Single Room

All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation. Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date. For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.


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. The guest accommodation at Nape Lodge (days 13, 14 and 15) although simple, is built to a high standard. Nape Lodge has been built just inland from the banks of the Tambopata River, on land granted to the Amazon community of Infierno nearly forty years ago. This land is adjacent to the then newly formed Tambopata National Reserve. The community are mainly farmers, but some now also work in local tourism. Over twenty years ago the community set 3,000 hectares of their land, primary forest, aside and banned all hunting, logging and farming. In partnership with a Peruvian Ecotourism company they opened an eco-lodge which they still co-run. Money generated by this partnership has helped build a secondary school for the community, provided support for the elderly and assisted students with the costs of further education. More recently the community decided to use their many years of experience of co-managing a lodge to build their own. Nape Lodge welcomed its first guests at the end of 2015. The communal area and dining room is an impressive wooden structure with a high roof, thatched in traditional style with palm fronds. The 16 rooms are a short walk from here and are also built in local wood, blending in with the surrounding forest. They are all furnished with crafted wooden furniture and have 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 almost a metre off the ground and have high unsealed roofs that encourage air-circulation. The community have also designed their rooms to maximise the feeling of being in the forest, and the fourth side of the room looking out to the forest is open. Good mosquito nets cover the beds (which are well off the floor). Electricity is provided by a generator twice a day so 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 and depending on the number of guests meals are either served at the table or self-serve style. Boiled, filtered drinking water is also available at all times, as is tea and coffee during the day. Fruit juices are provided with breakfast, and beers and soft drinks are also available to buy. The lodge 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 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.

USA: (including those in transit) Citizens of the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and passport holders from several EU countries can enter the United States without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) - where you apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation), which applies if you enter the country by sea or by air.

UK passports which are biometric feature a small gold symbol (camera) at the bottom of the front cover. If you have visited Iraq, Syria, Iran or Sudan since 2011 or are dual nationals of these countries, you cannot travel with an ESTA and instead you will need to apply for a visa from the nearest US Embassy or Consulate. If you are unable to provide a valid visa before boarding flights to the US, or entering via another method, you may not be permitted to travel. Please note for your ESTA application you will be required to supply Point of Contact information.

If you are leaving for the USA before this, please call the Explore team to get this information.(Not necessary if in transit) For further information please check out the US embassy website.

Read more information about what travel insurance is required.

Flight information

Explore offers a wide range of flexible flying options to make joining and leaving our trips easy. Read more about them here.


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.

Vaccinations

Nothing compulsory, we recommend protection against typhoid, tetanus, polio and hepatitis A. Please consult your travel clinic for the latest advice on Malaria, Dengue and Zika Virus. Please take preventative measures to avoid mosquito bites - these include mosquito repellent as well as long trousers and long sleeve shirts to cover up when necessary. Please note many countries in Central America, South America and the Caribbean require a yellow fever vaccination certificates if travelling from infected areas. A detailed list of these countries can be found on the NaTHNaC website - http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries. Also on the NaTHNaC site there is a list of Countries (and specific areas within a country) which are at risk of infection and a vaccination is therefore recommended.. The above is not an exhaustive list. Further information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice can be found by following the NHS and NaTHNaC links at http://www.explore.co.uk/Travelhealth/ and from your local healthcare provider.
