Father-Son Team Tackle Inca Trail
Re-trace the steps of 10 time alumni traveler, John, and his son Robby, who recently returned from a stellar father-son journey into the high Andes and along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.   “We are loyal to Wildland, having taken ~11 trips with you over the past 10 years. You always do a great job for us! Gretchen did an outstanding job of putting together an itinerary that met our needs and ensured our satisfaction.  As usual, you handled all the details perfectly. We enjoyed virtually everything - Cusco has the history, the excitement, the food and the cultural attractions; the Sacred Valley helped immerse us in the Inca culture and exposed us to fabulous ruins, the Inca Trail was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was both challenging and supremely rewarding.  I would not have changed a thing. Our guide, Fisher did a great job throughout. He was knowledgeable about the culture...

The Entire Trip Was Amazing

The Entire Trip Was Amazing
Listen to this solo female traveler share her experience of hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! “I had always wanted to see Machu Picchu, and for this trip I wanted something adventurous and physically challenging and Wildland Adventure’s Inca Trail Trek was the best I found! I loved the hike. The camp sites were awesome- I've never been so spoiled while hiking! Our guide, Elkin was awesome! Very knowledgeable, professional, and made sure that we all had everything we needed. The food on the trek was the most amazing- better than restaurant meals! I really appreciated that they made me vegetarian meals that were delicious. The entire trip was amazing. The people, the culture, the views, the trek... everything was wonderful.” To learn more about our Inca Trail Trek feel free to contact me. Your friendly South America Program Director, Gretchen

As the trekking season in Peru is ramping up, I would like to take the time to talk about some important information surrounding availability and additionally take a moment to present some alternative, and equally great hiking options to Machu Picchu.

There are still permits available for September-December but they are also going very quickly. For those wishing to procure permits to do the Inka Trail,...
