Private Inca Trail in 5 days is an ideal trek for visitors with a little bit more time. On this 5 day hike, you can take in beautiful landscapes, exotic valleys, flora and fauna and archeological centers, all with one of our professional guides. The 5 day Inca Trail is the best option for families with kids, elderly people or couples on their honeymoon.
Along the Inca trail, we avoid the mass-tourist backpackers who reach the Sun Gate in the early hours on the final day, with a carfully designed route that uses stategically selected campsites. Explore Adventures Peru arranges the Classic Inca trail as a five day, four night trek. This slightly slower pace (it’s also possible to do it over four days) is a bit easier and allows you to trek ahead or behind the majority of trekkers and better avoid the crowds at the main ruins. Three nights camping will see you arrive at Machu Picchu towards the end of day four, when you then spend a night at a hotel of your choice to re-visit Machu Picchu again on the fifth and last day, without any rush.And you will see MachuPicchu TWICE! That means sunset and sunrise.
