Machu Picchu + Wayna Picchu Tour

¿ Would you like to make a trip to find the perfect combination of adventure, excursion and quality service in Huayna Picchu Mountain?

With this tour you will find all this and much more. The Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu Tour includes the classic walk through the Citadel, where you will find the architectural remains of the Inca empire and beautiful postcards. Then, you will experience a real adventure in Huayna Picchu, on a stairway through this imposing mountain.

This is a unique activity that you can do as an addition to the classic full day in Machu Picchu, something you cannot miss if you are looking to get the most out of your trip to Peru. The views that you can appreciate from Huayna Picchu are privileged and you can see both the Citadel and the Andean landscapes that surround it.

Huayna Picchu is not very difficult, so you can do it in a revitalizing hike that will test your senses and will offer you incredible postcards to take pictures. Its elevation is approximately 2,693 meters, and its meaning in Quechua is “young mountain”.

It is well known for having narrow and more vertical paths than other mountains like Huchuy Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, so you can count on an extra touch of adrenaline on this trail. If you want to know about these additional treks, you can enter here for more information.

Take this opportunity to learn the secrets of Machu Picchu from the hands of the best professionals in Peru.
