Our Salkantay Trek & Inca Trail to Machupicchu in 6 days is the best alternative to Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 4 days. In this tour we will know both routes, passing through snow-capped mountains, jungle, Andean communities, archaeological sites and of course the most important destination in Peru and South America, Machu Picchu.

We will discover the Vilcanota mountain range in southern Peru, home to impressive mountains such as the majestic Nevado Salkantay, which rises to 6,264 meters above sea level. This snow-capped peak, along with three other peaks that exceed 6,000 meters, offers a landscape of unparalleled beauty and an irresistible challenge for mountaineering and trekking enthusiasts.

Nevado Salkantay, located less than fifty miles northwest of Cusco, in the Cordillera de Vilcabamba, is one of the most emblematic mountains in the region. With its imposing altitude, it is the highest mountain in this range and a popular destination for adventurers thanks to its easy access from Cusco and the frequency with which it is climbed.

This hiking tour will take you through breathtaking landscapes, where you can admire the majesty of Andean nature. Along the way, you will traverse diverse ecosystems, from lush forests to high moorlands, each with its own unique flora and fauna. In addition to the Salkantay, you will have the opportunity to contemplate other snow-capped peaks and enjoy spectacular panoramic views.
