THE INCA TRAIL WITH G ADVENTURES

We’ll admit it, no one does the Inca Trail quite like us, we combine the cultural highlights of the Sacred Valley with the challenge of one of the world’s best-known hikes. The four-day Inca Trail trek passes through a stunning combination of the region’s ruins, mountainscapes, and cloud forests. Once you catch your first glimpse of Machu Picchu in the early morning light, you’ll know it was all worthwhile. Best of all, since we run our own treks, we can ensure the fair treatment of our porters and the quality of food and equipment so you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the region.

ABOUT G ADVENTURES

G Adventures is one of the world’s largest and most sustainable small group adventure tour operators. In 2019, they launched a program called Ripple Scores, allowing you to see the percentage of local businesses and services used in the creation of each and every one of their trips. The higher the Ripple Score, the more money stays within the local community.

In addition to numerous awards celebrating their sustainability initiatives in the tourism industry, they’ve also been recognized by world-class organizations such as National Geographic and the Jane Goodall Institute. In 2016, G Adventures launched a partnership with National Geographic by offering a travel style called National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures. These tours offer travellers opportunities to get closer to local communities, connecting you to local cultures, and which provide a greater emphasis on education and conservation. In 2017, G Adventures’ animal welfare policy was officially endorsed by the Jane Goodall Institute.

Through their non-profit arm, Planeterra, G Adventures connects social enterprises to the tourism marketplace. They do so by providing catalyst funding, capacity training and a market link for small businesses that support local and indigenous communities, women, youth, and the environment. Planeterra now supports over 50 social enterprises in over 40 different countries.
