Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, Peru

Immense mountains, cloud forests and views for days are part of the magic that makes the Salkantay Trek one of the most fabulous walks you’ll ever take. 

The most celebrated Inca settlement in the world at the end of the path doesn’t hurt either.  

If a trek to Machu Picchu is on your Bucket List, look no further than the Salkantay Trail. Less popular, more peaceful and just as stunning as its sister routes, this is one incredible way to see the very best of Peru. 

45 miles from end to end, Salkantay is the longest hike we offer to Machu Picchu. But the return you get for a little extra effort? So worth it.

Adventure round Salktanay Mountain’s imposing peak and keep an eye on those mystic glaciers that seem to follow you every step of the way, then pass through lush valleys and high jungles as you descend. It’s a world of diverse landscapes up there. 

The views? Magnificent. The tranquillity? Sublime. Machu Picchu? Out of this world.
