Classic Inca Trail


Classic Inca Trail
Cusco Peru

A multi-day horseback trip following ancient Inca and colonial pathways through Peru's Sacred Valley including a narrated visit to Machu Picchu… We stay each night in a different comfortable Inn or hotel. The focus is learning as much as possible about Andean culture, traditions, history of the Incas and their ancestors while enjoying an unusual, memorable mountain excursion on quality horses and tack.

In the vast empire that once stretched from Quito, Ecuador to Santiago, Chile and Mendoza, Argentina, the Incas built a highly advanced network of trails spanning almost 40,000 kilometers, with Cusco at its heart. The Inca Trail, the most famous of these pathways, is a special pilgrimage passing through spectacular mountain scenery, beautiful cloud forests, and colonies of orchids and hummingbirds to arrive at the ancient mysterious city of Machu Picchu.

Passing through the Sacred Valley, this trip combines an astounding mixture of Inca ruins, mountain scenery, lush forests and subtropical jungle. Over 250 species of orchids exist in the area along with birds like hummingbirds, waterfowl and the grandiose Andean Condor.  The pleasing climate and fertile plains of this area create a rare and fruitful combination for the high Andes. Historically, the valley served as a buffer zone and often protected Cusco from attacks by the Antis, or jungle tribes, but today, the valley is a lush agricultural region that supplies Cusco with much of its maize, fruit, and vegetables.
