A&K Top Tip

After a long days walking all you really need is a massage, fortunately with our specialised trips we can organise massage theraspists to accompany your party. Starting out they may seem unnecessary however a few nights in you'll be overjoyed when it's finally your turn.

Guest Testimonial

We can honestly say that the whole three weeks made for a tremendous and wonderful holiday. Not a day went by without us being surprised and impressed by new sights and wonders! All the pre planning and arrangements made by you worked out to perfection. We appreciate that this cannot happen without a great deal of focus and hard work on your part, and that of the whole team.

- VB & PB, Lincolnshire

Take the original Inca Trail and add a touch of A&K luxury, including top of the range camping equipment, fine food, experienced guides and porters, the best campsites and even a massage therapist. Enjoy four exhilarating days of hiking before emerging at the magical citadel itself through the Sun Gate. Altitude does make trekking here demanding but also an experience never to be forgotten. 

See the ancient wonders of the Incas as you trek through an ever changing terrain of mountain valleys and high passes whilst enjoying fantastic views, original Incan pathways and fascinating archaeological sites, ending each day with a hearty meal, a glass of wine or pisco and a well-earned rest.

Note that the number of permits for both trekkers and porters are heavily regulated and the numbers are limited per day, so it is highly recommended to book your Inca Trail well in advance.
