Porters: Depending on your level of physical fitness, the hike can be strenuous. If you would like to reduce the load you have to carry, you can hire an extra porter to carry your belongings. You can hire them to carry 8 kg (18 lb) for $80 USD, or 15 kg (33 lb) for $150 USD. Included in this service is the porter’s salary, entrance to the inca trail to machu picchu and his food. If you decide to use this service, the porter will carry your packs until we reach Aguas Calientes. You must reserve your extra porter at the same time you reserve the trip, because the extra porter is counted as part of the 500-person limit on the inca trail.
Huayna Picchu: If you are interested in climbing Huayna Picchu, the mountain overlooking Machu Picchu, there is an additional fee of $75 USD per person for us to buy your entrance ticket. Spaces are limited, for information about this hike, please contact us.
Additional Night in Aguas Calientes: After 4-day inca trail, some people prefer to spend the 4th night in Aguas Calientes instead of returning to Cusco right away. This can give you more time to enjoy the ruins of Machu Picchu, relax in the hot springs in Aguas Calientes, and in general not have to worry about the time. This option is also good for those who want to climb Huayna Picchu but want to have some time to rest after the inca trail hike, so you can return to Machu Picchu the next day to climb Huayna Picchu Mountain. Please contact us for more information about options and prices.
Sleeping Bags:: If you would like to rent a sleeping bag from us, the price is $25 USD per person in total for this 4-day inca trail hike.
Trekking Poles: We recommend taking trekking poles on the hike especially when hiking downhill. If you would like to rent a pair for the whole hike, the price is $10 USD per person.
Private Tent: In our service, we include Mountain tents that are 2-person tents. However, if you would like to reserve a private tent the price is $40 USD.
Vistadome Train: Our price includes a return train ticket in the Expedition train, however, if you would like to upgrade to the Vistadome train the price is an additional $50 USD per person.
