Experience Machu Picchu, one of the world's most iconic sights, as part of Sue Ryder's Team Incredible. Join us on this beautiful Inca Trail Trek, passing through valleys and high passes in the Peruvian Andes and scattered with fascinating Inca ruins.

About the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu Trek

Trekking on Inca-paved paths and steps, our route takes us up through lush cloud forest to the demanding Dead Woman’s Pass (4,200m). Continually climbing up or dropping down, the way can be steep at times, but the altitude only adds to the challenge.

Finally, you reach the Sun Gate, which overlooks Machu Picchu, where your first magical glimpse provides an unforgettable reward for your efforts.

Unfortunately, the Trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 2020 has now been cancelled in response to COVID-19. You can read more about Sue Ryder's response to the virus.

Interested in joining the team for 2021 or 2022?
