If you don’t feel like doing the full Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu, or you simply don’t have the time, then our short Inca Trail trek (two days and one night) could be a great option for you. Physically speaking, it’s a far less strenuous trek than the classic four-day hike, but it still gives you a taste of what it’s like on the Inca Trail.
You’ll also be able to experience some of the main highlights of the Inca Trail, including the beautiful Wiñay Wayna archaeological site with its spectacular series of agricultural terraces, as well as Inti Punku, Machu Picchu’s famous Sun Gate. And then, of course, there’s Machu Picchu itself, one of the most sublime sights on the planet. Try and book off season, there are fewer people in Cusco! Avoid February however as the Inca Trail is closed for the month of February.
