Do not be misled! There is only ONE Inca Trail to Machu Picchu — there are no alternatives! Don't miss the original classic pilgrimage trail to Machu Picchu. Regulations limit the number of people on the Inca Trail. Inca Trail permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis and are non-transferable. To ensure your spot we recommend that you reserve by September 2021 at the latest!


Our running adventure begins in Cusco, the archaeological capital of the Americas, at an altitude of 11,150 feet. In Cusco you will be able to see massive walls, cobblestone streets and remnants of the Inca empire and the Spanish colonial period. After a fascinating tour of Cusco, we are ready to start our running adventure, which offers a spectacular variety of trails in the Southern Peruvian Andes.


We begin our run on the ancient Inca trail that leads to the legendary lost city of Machu Picchu — an extraordinary adventure into the history of the grand Inca civilization. Along the way, we explore the intriguing ruins of Inca fortresses, and camp at breath-taking Phuyupatamarca, "town in the clouds." Descending to the Sun Gate and Machu Picchu, the cloud forest trail becomes increasingly lush and varied. After two days exploring Machu Picchu — one of the world's most spectacular ruins — we take a train ride back to Cusco.

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary and last Inca Trail Marathon departures we are offering a special one-day Rainbow Mountain Extension at our cost.
