Inca Trail Hiking Tour: 4-day Classic Inca Trail Itinerary

Follow in the footsteps of the Incas on the classic Inca Trail hike from Cuzco to Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail is a four-day hike that finishes dramatically at Machu Picchu early on the fourth morning, giving you precious time to explore the misty ruins before the tour buses arrive. We include the entire 4-day Inca Trail hiking tour and much more on our Jaguar 14-day Peru guided adventure. It's an amazing adventure that encompasses not just the trail, but also the Sacred Valley of the Incas, kayaking on Lake Titicaca, a stay with a Quechuan family on Amantani Island and the wonderful Andes mountains. It's a great way to experience some wonderful views and culture - in addition to doing the most famous track.

We spent our honeymoon in October 2008 traveling through New Zealand on an Active Adventures guided tour. It was an amazing trip! We had a small group and three awesome and experienced guides. The photos from the trip are beautiful! There were so many great experiences that my husband and I still talk about and joke about. For instance, our kayak experience was a hoot! It was calm as could be in the lagoon, and then coming across to get to land we hit a headwind and we paddled and paddled like mad and were getting nowhere together. It was so hilarious we could not stop laughing! We are an active couple, and a social couple and this tour was magnificent. The guides were beyond incredible. They made the trip even better with their fun personalities, positive spirit and wonderful knowledge! A shout out and big thank you to Ken, Tim and Zoe, from Nadine & Bob!

The word "Amazing" does not do justice to the trip and experience we had with Active Adventures. We are a family that has traveled the world and never used a tour company. Active Adventures created a unique experience that you can't achieve on your own. Extremely knowledgeable guides along with a great travel plan allowed us to have a once in a lifetime experience in New Zealand. We look forward to our next Active Adventure trip.

My wife and I did our honeymoon with Active New Zealand. It was, simply put, the best experience of our lives. The adventure was unparalleled- the staff was amazing and scenery fantastic. Every component of the trip was meticulous planned and well executed. Active NZ has my highest recommendation.

My wife and I have done two New Zealand tours with Active - One in the North Island and one in the South Island. The guides were terrific and the adventures were fantastic. We had a great time and wouldn't tour with anyone else!

I want to take a minute to rave about my experiences with Active Adventures. It's been a few years since I traveled with them. I went to New Zealand on their tours of the South and North islands and the following year I traveled to Patagonia. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and the guides are amazing, especially our bilingula guide Cynthia in South America. We went on some unforgettable hikes and adventures. Most of my traveling companions were great people. The food was good and the staff did everything to accommodate our needs. I was happy with the places we stayed - not fancy but just what we needed. As a single traveler, I appreciated that they did not charge a single supplement but found me roommates. I look forward to returning to both New Zealand and South America and hope to travel with Active again. I have recommended them to friends and would encourage anyone wanting to get outdoors in the areas where they travel to sign up now!

I had a Fantastic time on my Active Adventure New Zealand trip! Perfect way to travel as a single women I thought.. Everything was organized and I felt at ease knowing I was taken care of... I feel as though I was able to see all the best sights in New Zealand and LOVED the hiking that we did every day.. Our guides Dave and Amanda were amazing guides and I had a wonderful group of other people to travel with as well.. I would definitely consider booking another trip like this again... Only a few small things I would change.. Definitely more time hiking, less time eating! Although that was fun as well... Aloha from Kauai

Everyone fantasizes about their "dream trip", but Active Adventures delivers it. The small group camaraderie, the guides who know their craft and can still cook fabulous meals, the off the beaten path locations, every detail is planned and carried out smoothly. And, of course, there is New Zealand herself.

We've traveled with Active Adventures twice - to Machu Picchu and to Everest Base Camp. They're an outstanding company, and gave us over-the-top service with every step. Highly recommend!
