No Reservation for The Inca Trail? No Problem!


Inca Trail Alternative

The Inca Trail is a great experience and if you have it lined up, then good on ya, It’s a fantastic way to get to Machu Picchu. The problem is that everyone tells you that you need to reserve 6 months in advance in order to get onto the Inca Trail… and they’re not lying. Even showing up and waiting for a cancellation doesn’t work because when one person cancels their spot DOES NOT get replaced with a new person.

But don’t fret, there’s an alternative.

The alternative is to take the Inca/Jungle trail. It’s a real bargain for anyone out there trying to get a great experience, but not dead set on hiking the whole way in. It is 4 days/3 nights. You will be on the Inca Trail long enough to get a real feel for it, have a wicked day of biking, cross rivers in little cable cars and even go ziplining if you wish. For any ecotourist, it is a great experience.

Jonny Jenkins

My name is Jonny, my friends call me Stef. I'm Canadian born, but don't find my identity based upon some borders that man drew hundreds of years ago. I have begun to make my way through the world, travelling and living in many different countries and cultures. I believe whole heartedly in staying longer and going deeper to get the best understanding possible of many different perspectives of life. In order to do so, you have to speak the language. I am no polyglot, but have started to put more emphasis on learning languages in the last few years. I have learned Spanish, relearned French, and started in on Portuguese, German, Indonesian and Malagasy. When it comes to the third world, I am willing to help where they (and not I) decide they need it... in the first world, I am hoping to inspire and motivate people to live more engaging lives.
