Itinerary

Day 1Cusco
Arrive at any time. Arrive early and spend some time exploring the city. Meet the group at the welcome meeting, check for the start time on the welcome note at the hotel.
Day 2Malaga Pass
Pump up the excitement today on an epic mountain biking adventure. Start the exhilarating ride way up at Malaga Pass. Enjoy stunning Andean views, Incan archaeological sites, and rushing rivers on the way down to the jungle below.
Day 3Santa Teresa
Start early today on a 16km (9.9 mi) hike, trek along the Urubamba river on the way to Santa Teresa. Opt to soak those aching muscles in the hot springs nearby.
Day 4Santa Teresa/Aguas Calientes
Soar through the air on a zipline high above the jungle below. Head to Aguas Calientes and opt to visit the local hot springs.
Day 5Machu Picchu/Cusco
Tick majestic Machu Picchu off your bucket list today. Explore the ruins with a local guide and opt to visit the Inca Bridge before returning to Cusco.
Day 6Rainbow Mountain
Get a very early start to drive to one of the most instagrammable locations of the region, Rainbow Mountain. Today is a challenging hike, but well worth the reward.
Day 7Cusco/La Paz
Catch a flight to one of the loftiest cities in the world, La Paz, Bolivia. Enjoy a free afternoon to explore the city, opt to check out the witches market or the valley of the moon.
Day 8La Paz/Salt Flats and Desert Crossing
Fly to Uyuni to enjoy a 3-day 4x4 excursion to the Salar de Uyuni and surrounding desert altiplano, with spectacular scenery. Today you will be heading into the Salar de Uyuni. Our groups like to get creative with photography, as the endless white of the salt flats creates some great depth illusions that are fun to play with in photos. Last stop for the evening is a G Adventures-supported community lodge in a traditional agricultural village in the heart of a desert oasis. Despite its isolation and challenging climate (cold and blustery most of the year), the town of Uyuni has earned the nickname of Hija Predilecta de Bolivia (Bolivia’s Favourite Daughter). It is also the starting point for our 2-night excursion through the spectacular Salar de Uyuni (Uyuni Salt Flats) in 4x4 vehicles. Settle into your G Adventures-supported community salt-brick bungalow, complete with salt floors and furniture, after a guided walking tour up to the sacred Jukil mountaintop for sweeping valley views and a dinner of local ingredients prepared by ladies from the community.
Day 9Salt Flats and Desert Crossing
Explore the desert altiplano on a 4x4 excursion. Admire the spectacular scenery while passing red and blue lagoons and interesting rock formations along the route. Spot wild llamas, alpacas and even flamingos deep within the desert.
Day 10Salt Flats and Desert Crossing /Uyuni
Enjoy a final day of exploring the Salar de Uyuni before boarding an overnight bus back to La Paz.
Day 11La Paz
Depart at any time upon arrival to La Paz by overnight bus.

  • With this video, we would like to show you, how beautiful the Inca Trail is.
  • This video might show locations that this tour doesn't contain.

What to Take

  • Most people automatically assume that the weather is hot in South America, but because of the higher altitude in the Andes, the temperature can feel quite cold, especially at night.
  • We recommend using a backpack for your convenience, or a medium-sized suitcase if you prefer.
  • A daypack is also essential for carrying everyday items.
  • Space is limited on transportation, so there is a limit of one main piece of luggage per person.
  • You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage.
