Inkaterra Machu Picchu can be either a quiet retreat for the mind and body or a base for numerous excursions. The hotel offers 14 varied excursions covering a range of three intensity levels. Some ideal for children, while others involve significant exertion, such as a full-day hike on the Inca trail. All excursions are guided by trainerd Interpreters, who also provide basic equipment and snacks, as needed. Each visitor can arrange, with the interpreters, an individual schedule upon arrival according to their itineraries, time and desired activity level. We recommend the following basic itinerary for a three-day visit. Each activity can be substituted by various others of the same duration. Some excursions require pre-booking and additional payments.
