Community Inca Trek & Machu Picchu

Our flagship community project is our fantastic Community Inca Trail near Cuzco - this trek is an incredible and unique alternative to the overcrowded 'Classic' Inca Trail and has raised thousands of pounds for sustainable development projects in the local Quechua communities in the region we trek through. Our project started in 2005, and in 2013 we changed the route to expand to new areas that would benefit greatly from our help - and the new route is even more spectacular than the original! Our Community Trail is unique for its absence of other tourists and the stunning untouched beauty of the Andean landscape. The trail features wildlife, culture, amazing views of the huge glaciers in region, and the serenity of being the only trekkers there. It also includes sections of the original ancient Incan trail which connected Cuzco to Machu Picchu. Best of all, we get right into the heart of several remote Andean communities in areas that no other tourists will ever go, which allows for a very genuine local interaction! Our trek ends at the ancient town of Ollantaytambo, and on the following morning we will transfer by train and bus to the magical ruins of Machu Picchu before returning to Cuzco that evening.
