Tour Details

Our Cheapest 2 day Inca Trail tour to Machu Picchu is the shorter and easier way to experience the highlights of the Classic 4-day Inca Trail. On this trail you will be experiencing different microclimates as you will be descending from Andes to the cloud forest. 

The route is dotted with several Inca ruins including the iconic Wiñay Wayna. You will be entering the citadel of Incas, Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate as those on the Classical Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. 

The trail is ideal for families with small children as you won’t be hiking through any high altitudes or will be camping. The highest point of the 2 day Inca Trail Tour is 2650 metres above sea level.

We will be accommodating you in a comfortable ensuite hotel room in Aguas Calientes town. The following day on your half day trip to Machu Picchu citadel, our guide will be walking you through the prime attractions of the citadel.

One of my favorite travel memories ever. An amazing mix of nature/scenic hikes, culture, history, and food. The views were stunning, and hike very enjoyable.
Erickson travel did an incredible job sharing with us all his knowledge of Incan history and the land. We learned so much!
