Machu Picchu is one of the most popular archaeological ruins in the world. According to a news report by Peru Telegraph, a staggering 1,578,030 visitors made their way in the country’s most famous tourist attraction in 2018. Travelers looking to reach the ruins can take the classic Inca trail trek.
This trek takes hikers on an amazing path that the Incas built over 900 years ago to connect the capital city of Cusco to Machu Picchu. Travelers can expect to be amazed by the stunning combination of magnificent mountains, Incan ruins and exotic vegetation.
We offer the standard four-day Inca trail to Machu Picchu to all travelers. On top of that, we have one-, two-, and five-day options. You can choose a long or short hike to Machu Picchu. Take note that short Inca treks (one- and two-day options) consist of the last third of the trail and enter the ancient citadel via the Sun Gate.
We encourage you to book with us as soon as possible. The Peruvian government has taken measures to manage the number of tourists entering the site. Only 500 permits are available per day — 200 are for trekking travelers and 300 for porters, chefs and guides. These permits quickly sell out, especially during the peak months.

SAM Travel Peru is a socially responsible tour operator concerned about the environment. Our Plant A Tree campaign creates awareness to local communities and the citizens of the city of Cusco that deforestation issue in the Andes Mountains is a serious one. As each year, many mountain slopes are void of trees and that causes a huge decline in the wildlife.
December of 2017, SAM Travel Peru fulfilled the dreams of 36 children and their parents from the indigenous community of Pampamarca way up in the Andean mountains in the south of Cusco. They got to tour Cusco City, Sacred Valley and the Citadel of Machu Picchu all paid for by SAM Travel Peru. These are children do not have the resources nor ability for many reasons to be able to experience the historical sites of their Inca heritage. Sam Travel Peru wants to give them a once in a lifetime experience up close and in person of their heritage and restore their pride in their culture, history and Inca heritage.
We kick off our annual Christmas social project focused on helping communities surrounding the imperial city of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. We journeyed towards the community of Pacchanta, located within the district of Ocongate (home to Ausangate Mountain). This quaint and isolated community is home to about 400 people or so. SAM Travel Peru was able to complete this project successfully with the help of its dedicated team members!
