Our Selection Tours & Treks to Machu Picchu

SAM TRAVEL PERU provides several treks on the INCA TRAIL that ends at Machu Picchu, but one of the most DESIRABLE and IMPRESSIVE TREK is the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 4D3N, it is known for its exquisite natural beauty, and different ecological niches, ranging from high desert regions to tropical Andean forest. It is also known for its FABULOUS HISTORICAL SITES. During their empire, the Incas created a vast network of roads that crossed the Andes from Argentina to Colombia and from the coast to the Amazon rain forest. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a branch which goes from the Andes to the jungle.

The Classic Inca Trail is not the only hike that ends at Machu Picchu. We also provide amazing ALTERNATIVE TREKS like: the Salkantay Trail, 5D4N, Lares Trek to Machu Picchu 4D3N or 3D4N, Huchuy Qosqo 2D1N or 3D1N days and Choquequirao Hike 8D7N or 9D1N which is at trek to the NEW AND AMAZING INCA CITY recently discovered. Please feel free to explore all of our treks on our website.

Once you are at Machu Picchu you can take advantage of the hike up Huayna Picchu Mountain or Machu Picchu Mountain with their BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE RUINS and endless opportunities for photographs. Whichever path you decide, your reward will be seeing the LOST CITY OF THE INCAS and learning about INCA HISTORY.
