Join the Legit Trips experience as we travel to Machu Picchu and take you on one unforgettable trek. This is one of our most popular trips and provides an immersive adventure, exploring the magical town of Cusco and learning from our local Peruvian trekking guides along the Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu.
Join us for a private group adventure of the Salkantay trail and Machu Picchu! The best way to cross Machu Picchu off your bucketlist. Our trip will be private just for Legit Trips guests and we’ll be providing our signature fun along the way! This is a fully supported 40 mile trek along the Salkantay Trail as we travel to Machu Picchu. Two days in Cusco before the hike to acclimate to the altitude are included as well as a hotel night in the end to relax before we depart!
Trip begins and ends in Cusco (CUZ). But there are often more flight options if you book to Lima from your home city, and then book a domestic jumper from Lima to Cusco.
