Classic Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu

Hike the Inca Trail and Explore Machu Picchu on this 9-Day Peru Adventure Vacation

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a true classic that should be on every adventurer’s “to-do” list. Exploring ancient paths and exquisite ruins in this spectacular setting will send shivers down your spine. This haunting fortress city nestled below stunning peaks is perhaps the greatest mystery of the Inca Empire. The four-day trek on the Inca Trail to reach this pre-Columbian site is a pilgrimage through time. Beautiful Andean scenery, as well as cultural history, unfolds as we hike up and down steep stone staircases past ancient Inca outposts. Combine the Inca trail with a few days in Cusco, a visit to the Sacred Valley, a bike trip or hike through the Peruvian countryside, and you will get a true sense of the magic of Peru!

Dear Bio Bio, I’ve traveled all over the world with well known touring companies and I have to say you guys are the best!! For my 40th birthday, a group of 16 friends headed down to Peru to hike the Inca Trail and visit Machu Picchu. We were thrilled mountain biking and horse back riding were also included. And while we knew the trip would be filled with adventure, we didn’t expect the level of luxury Bio Bio offers. The hotels we stayed in were beautiful. The food tent on the trail is out of this world! And speaking of the food, it was gourmet at every stop. We still can’t figure out how the chefs make such amazing meals on the trail. But I think the best part of Bio Bio is the people you have working with you. Our guides (Piero, Jose, Jairo and Reuben) made the trip! They are fun and great to hang out with, but also really knowledgeable about the local area. And they go above and beyond. Here are two examples. One was in the cloud forest. The guides woke up at 5am to see if the sky was clear. It was, so they woke everyone up and we climbed to the top of the hill to have a view from the top of the world. Plus, the porters had already set up our coffee table so we drank hot coffee and gazed out over the Andes. The second was when we arrived through the sun gate at Machu Picchu. Bio Bio got us there in the late afternoon. While I was skeptical about this at first (most get there at sunrise), it was the best plan! We literally had Machu Picchu to ourselves. No crowds. No lines. Plus, the guides hiked for 4 days with champagne in their packs so we could toast to our accomplishment. I can’t say enough about this trip. Our entire group is now looking at going to Chile together, of course with Bio Bio. With tons of love and admiration, Wendy W. Damonte Evening News Anchor, KTVN-TV Channel 2 Wendy W.

What a wonderful trip!! I have been on many adventure trips--from running across the Morrocan Sahara for 9 days in the Marathon des Sables, to the Himalayan Run and Trek, a 10-day stage run in northeastern India and Sikkim, and private treks and climbs in Nepal--yet this Inca trek in Peru was the best of them all. Likely it was our exceptional group of women "of a certain age" who laughed and struggled together up the trail that made it so special; but our spirits couldn't have stayed so high without the special attention to detail from your Peruvian staff. Piero Vellutino kept us all smiles with his funny comments and big bear hugs. Each time we achieved a goal, a high pass, the end of a long day, the end of the trek to Intipunku, our guides Piero, Omar and Jairo, congratulated and hugged us. They quietly made sure that all camp details were perfect and had friendly words for all the porters. It was a happy trip. Some of us felt poorly from time to time, but were buoyed up by Piero and company so that no one ever considered stopping short of the goal. The trip was a wonderful blend of comraderie, physical challenge, Inca and Quechua cultural immersion and nature education. We were blessed with good weather and fun shopping excursions to top it all off. I can't wait to go back next year to see more of Peru and its lovely people! Regarding highs and lows, there were only highs. The hotels were all very nice, with the Pueblo Inkaterra the loveliest. My only wish is that the trip were longer!!! Though it is best to leave for home wishing for more, rather than wishing to go home--so it was just the right length.Camille Yarbrough – Inca trail 2009
