We’ll drive for 45 minutes to Cruzpata, where you’ll start mountain biking through the stunning Andes. You’ll pass potato, quinoa, and wheat fields while you take in your surroundings. You’ll also stop in the small village of Maras and explore the Salt Mines that’s a truly unique sight.

You’ll head further down into the Sacred Valley and enjoy spectacular views of the land that was once so important to the Inca civilization. You can spot glaciers in the distance that watch over the towns and villages below. From the valley, you’ll take our private transport for three and half hours to Santa Maria (1,200 m / 3,937 ft), where you’ll enjoy lunch. This is also where you’ll spend the night.

This afternoon, you’ll be heading to the Vilcanota River for some exciting rafting on category III and III+ rapids. You’ll be kept very safe by our experienced team and receive all the necessary equipment, including helmets, windbreakers, and category V lifejackets. You should note that this thrilling adventure is only available between April and December because heavy rains cause the river to rise the rest of the year.

Along this section, we’ll stop a few times to learn about the unique wildlife and plants before visiting the house of a local family. In their home, you’ll get to know more about the typical customs and traditions in this part of Cusco.

Later on, we’ll make our way over a part of the original Inca Trail that connected Machu Picchu to Vilcabamba, the last refuge of the Incas. While you’re in this section, your guide will teach you all about the Inca’s history, and you’ll understand how their communication system on the trails worked. You’ll also get to take in some astounding views of the Huancarccasa canyon and observe the majestic Salkantay Mountain in the distance.

Afterward, we’ll head downhill to Huacayupana before we continue in our transport to Santa Teresa for a delicious lunch in a local home. We’ll have another thrilling activity waiting for you there as you zipline through the luscious jungle valley. You’ll feel as though you’re a bird soaring through the thick canopy.

Next, there’s another treat in store as we make our way to the Cocalmayo hot springs, 20-minutes away. These medicinal, thermal waters are in the most picturesque setting you can imagine, and you’ll be able to spend plenty of time here unwinding in the baths and resting your tired muscles.

As with every other morning, we’ll serve you a hot cup of coca tea in your bed to help wake you up. You’ll have some time to get ready for the day and enjoy your last breakfast prepared by our chefs. We’ll set out early this morning for you to enjoy a short section of the world-famous Inca Trail.

After, you’ll have some time to explore the tropical jungle and then visit a local coffee farm. This is a great visit, especially for those who love coffee, as the wonderful smell fills the air, and you’ll also be able to taste a freshly prepared cup of coffee by the locals. This produce is their main form of farming, and many who work in the plantations are passionate about what they do. You’ll learn the whole process from start to finish.

Later on, we’ll ascend for around 3 hours, with stunning views of the Santa Teresa valley accompanying us all the way. We’ll soon arrive at the Llactapata Inca site, which is across from Machu Picchu.

Next, we’ll keep walking for another one and a half hours to get to Aobamba, where we’ll have a delicious lunch. Once we’re full and rested, it’ll be time to continue on to Hidroelectrica. From here, you have two options. You can either catch a train to Aguas Calientes for an extra cost if you’re worn out, or hike for another 3 hours along a flat trail beside the railway.

On the walk, you’ll stop at the Intihuatana, which was a very important rock to the Incas and used for ceremonial purposes. Scholars believe that it worked together with the larger Intihuatana at Machu Picchu. Along the whole route, we’ll be accompanied by the Urubamba River, lush jungle, and singing birds. You might catch a glimpse of parrots, toucans, and the cock of the rock, the national bird of Peru.

Once we get to Aguas Calientes, it’ll be time to check into your hotel and have a shower. You can take some time to relax or spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the small town before we go to a nice restaurant for dinner. You’ll have a small briefing about how tomorrow will work and then head to bed early. You need to be up before the sun tomorrow.

Note: During the rainy season, the hike up the Llactapata Trail isn’t 100% guaranteed due to safety concerns. When there are a lot of heavy rains, this trail becomes very dangerous.

Visit places
Aguas Calientes
Machu Picchu
Return to Cusco

The long-awaited day is finally here as you’ll finally be visiting one of the New Seven Wonders and World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu.

The entrance to Machu Picchu opens at 6:00 am, and we want to make sure we’re one of the first to enter. From Aguas Calientes, we’ll take the bus to the Lost City. Once inside, your guide will give you a 2-hour tour of the most important parts of Machu Picchu, which includes temples, terraces, palaces, priest’s houses, the Intihuatana, the industrial sector, and the farming fields.

Afterward, you’ll have 5 more hours to explore by yourself or hike up Machu Picchu Mountain or Huayna Picchu, but only if you have pre-booked tickets. If you don’t have tickets, there are two other fantastic options: The Sun Gate or Inca Bridge. From all of these places, you get a fabulous view over Machu Picchu.

A little after midday, it’ll be time to make your way back down to Aguas Calientes, where you’ll have time to grab a bite to eat before you catch your train to Ollantaytambo. We try to book tickets between 1:37 pm and 6:20 pm, depending on availability. Once in Ollantaytambo, you’ll be transported back to your accommodation in Cusco by our private transport.

Information Before leaving for the Inca Jungle Trail 4 days

We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as easy as possible. In this section, you will find speedy answers to all those questions you had about Jungle Trail 4 Days in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.
Has another question that we haven’t answered here? Drop us a line, and we will get back to you asap!

Briefing or informative meeting

All information meetings are held in your hotel at 6:00 p.m., one night before the tour begins. If you cannot attend, you must coordinate another time at the Peru Hike offices. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes and there you will be given a small duffel bag, in which you’ll put all the belongings you intend to bring on the trek that won’t be in your day pack.

Duffel bag or canvas case

ou’ll receive a canvas case or duffel bag during your briefing. The porters will take them on the way and will deliver them to you when you get to each camp. They measure 66 cm / 2 ft. Long x 36 cm / 1 ft. Wide.

A maximum of 5 kg is allowed for each duffel bag that includes the weight of your sleeping bag, mat, clothes and other personal items.

Payment of Trek Balance (in Cusco)

The trek has to be paid for in full by at least 7.30 pm two days before departure. For example, if your tour departs on a Wednesday, then you must come to our office before 7.30 pm on Monday.

It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can pay by credit card or PAYPAL online, but you will have to pay an 8% service charge, charged by VISA and PAYPAL. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

Can I store my luggage at your office?

Of course! During the travel, your main luggage can be stored at our office(you can organize briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.

Any equipment that you are not going to need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags, put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (In the unlikely case of theft many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing all the items). Best put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

Pick up of guests

Peru Hike can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historic Center of Cusco. The pickup time will be coordinated with your guide in the briefing. The pickup time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. Cusco is a very old city, therefore, it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

Return to Cusco

Returning from Machu Picchu requires quite a bit of logistics, but don’t worry. Everything is included in your tour!

  • In Machu Picchu you’ll board a bus that will take you for 25 minutes to the small city of Aguas Calientes. The buses are boarded according to your arrival.
  • In Aguas Calientes you’ll board a train to Ollantaytambo or Cusco. Your guide will give you the train tickets where the boarding time will be shown. Make sure you’re on the platform 30 minutes early. The train from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo takes 2 hours.
  • Once you arrive at the station, our representative, identified with the Peru Hike clothing, will be waiting to transfer you to Plaza San Francisco, in Cusco. The trip from Ollantaytambo to Plaza San Francisco takes 2 hours.
  • In San Francisco, depending on your hotel’s location, we will take you to a smaller car from our company (Hyundai H1) to transfer you faster to your hotel in Cusco.

Group tours

Group tours are made up of different types of people. Physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, it will be the guide who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if said modifications can be made.

Strikes and demonstrations

Strikes and demonstrations are usually frequent in Peru and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your excursion as planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, all situations will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority and our decisions will be made to protect it.

Lost objects

You’re responsible for your objects during the tour. Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our trucks, tents, or restaurants.

Group Traveller

Absolutely the company to go with Excellent bikes (the Guide always available to fix stuff should any technical issues arise).Samuel was our guide- professional, friendly, patient and always keeping an eye on how everyone was.At every stop he gave us intel on what types of conditions were coming up and what we should be aware of. The bikes, the gear and the people were all top notch – Peru Hike stood head and shoulders above other companies we saw on the day. These guys are the best to get you stoked for one of the best experiences of your life! Thank you again.
