22 Days Peru Tour Package | Inca Trail 4 days | All Inclusive | Inca Ambassador | Peru Bucket List | Tour Agency | Best Prices


Welcome to Peru Bucket List, we are so glad you’re here. Why? Because you have landed on the most epic Peru travel package out there. This 22-day journey is meant to show you all of the legendary highlights of our country. From deserts to cities to mountains to jungle to coast, this is the itinerary that does it all. So we want to invite you to experience it for yourself. Become an Inca Ambassador – book today. 

This Peru travel package begins on our country’s famous desert coast. Stop in Lima to experience the best of our food and metropolitan culture. After days of delicious seafood and nights of live music, we’ll head south to sandboard and go-kart around the picture-perfect desert of Huacachina and Paracas. This nationally protected land used to be completely underwater, giving it a one of a kind landscape and plenty of surprise fossils buried in the sand.

We’ll then visit Nazca, for a flight above the ancient geoglyphs of the same name. Carved into the desert floor, the enigmatic Nazca Lines still puzzle historians to this day. During your flight, you will have the best view to see the intricately designed shapes. 

Continuing our journey, we will visit Arequipa to explore the famous white city and raft daringly down a remote and raging river before spending time in the second deepest canyon in the world, Colca. If you’re lucky, you might spot the largest flying bird in the world, the condor. We will make our way next to the cultural treasure that is Lake Titicaca. The folkloric capital of Peru, the region is the perfect place to experience authentic Peruvian culture. Spend the night in the home of a local family and stay up late learning about the traditions and music of the Andean people.

Adventure on to the imperial city of Cuzco, and tour famous sites like Ollantaytambo ruins, the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and more. In the Sacred Valley, you will stay in a local community and contribute to social projects in the area. Finally, it will be time for what you have been waiting for all along your journey to Machu Picchu. Trek for four days along the original Inca Trail beside alpacas, raging rivers, local farmers, and steep mountain peaks, before arriving at the sun gate that will give you your first glimpse at Machu Picchu. 

After plenty of photo ops and new historical knowledge, you will head to your final destination, the Amazon Jungle. Spend your days visiting endemic flora and fauna, exploring remote trails and rivers, and enjoying the last few days of your Peru travel package. When this 22-day trip is up, you will go home feeling like you have checked off your Peru Bucket List (though we’re pretty sure you will still want to come back!).

The Inca Trail waits for you with its majestic and impressive landscapes, streams, Inca ruins, and more!

Between 7.00 am – 8.00 am our private transport and staff will pick you up from our hotel. We will drive to Piskacuchu (2700m/8856ft), which is the starting point of the Inca Trail. We begin our hike by crossing the bridge over the Urubamba River and walking along its left shore as it flows northwest along the Sacred Valley. Following the trail along a flat terrain, we arrive in Miskay (2800m/9184ft), to then climb and finally see, from the tallest part of an overlook the impressive Inca city of Llactapata (2650m/8692ft). We continue trekking along the valley created by the Kusichaca River, gradually climbing for about five hours until we reach the community of Wayllabamba (3000m/9840ft), where we set our first camp. All along the way, we enjoy spectacular views of the Vilcanota point on the opposite side of the Urubamba River, where the impressive Veronica peak reigns at 5832 m.a.s.l.

Day 16Inca Trail

We wake up at around 6:00 am and after breakfast, we begin the most difficult part of the trek, which consists of a steep climb that stretches for 9 km. Along this climb, the landscape changes from sierra (highland) to puna (a dry and high area with little vegetation). On the way to the first mountain pass, the Abra Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman´s Pass – 4200m/13776ft), we may see domesticated llamas and alpacas feeding on Ichu, one of the few plants that grow at this altitude.

We will also cross an area of the called cloud forest, which is the habitat for many kinds of birds like hummingbirds, sparrows, and the Andean bear! We advise that on this day, your daypack is well stocked with candies, chocolates, and coca leaves/candy that will keep your sugar level high and help with altitude sickness. Immediately after the pass, we descend into the Pacaymayo Valley (3600m/11808ft), where we camp after approximately 7h of hiking.

Meals included
Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 17Inca Trail

This day is the longest but also the most impressive full of historical archaeological sites and the cloud forest area that we cross, so rich in Andean flora and fauna. From Pacaymayo we climb to the second pass, the Abra Runkurakay (3970m/13022ft). Halfway up, we stop to visit the archaeological complex with the same name. This site, located at 3800m/12464ft, consists of a small oval structure that is believed to have served the purpose of a watchtower. After going over the pass, we descend towards Yanacocha (Black Lagoon) and enter the cloud forest to finally arrive at Sayacmarca (3624m/11887ft). This is a beautiful complex made up of semi-circular construction, enclosures at different levels, narrow streets, fountains, patios, and irrigational canals.

Continuing up an easy climb, we arrive at the third pass, the Abra Phuyupatamarca (3700m/12136ft). Phuyupatamarca means ‘town above the clouds, the clouds formed in the valleys of the cloud forest are already dissolved at this height. Along this climb, we will appreciate the magnitude of the Incas´ ancient work! (Terraces, semidetached paths, and small water canals)

We will pass through an Inca tunnel to arrive at the Abra Phuyupatamarca. This is one of the most complete and best-preserved archaeological complexes along the Inca Trail towards Machu Picchu and is located on the highest point of a mountain. From above, one can observe the sophisticated sacred complex made up of water fountains with solid foundations and impressive views of the Urubamba River valley. We continue our trek down the long descending stone steps that lead us to Wiñaywayna (2650m/8692ft), an impressive Inca complex made up of an agricultural center with numerous terraces, a religious temple, and an urban sector, close to which our camp is located. After visiting the impressive archaeological site, we enjoy getting ready for our farewell dinner at our camp.

Meals included
Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 18Machu Picchu - Cusco

On this fourth and last day we get up at 4.00 am to leave Wiñaywayna and climb to the Intipunku, or ‘the Sun Gate’. This will take an hour of hiking along a trail of flat stones on the edges of cliffs in the highland jungle. From this fabulous spot, we may see the sunrise over the sacred citadel of Machu Picchu. From Intipunku we descend into Machu Picchu and 40 minutes later we enter the citadel from the highest point through the ¨House of the Guardians¨.
