While you are relatively close to Cusco, you will feel like as if you are a world away venturing into this famous nature reserve. You will discover an astounding variety of jungle wildlife, from plants to birds and animals. Reports list more than 1700 species of plants, 100 species of mammals, 130 species of butterflies and 90 species of amphibians living there, making this reserve one of the most biodiverse areas in the world. Our travels will include many forms of transportation–from boat and canoe to hiking on foot–on this extraordinary adventure.

Day 1

Puerto Maldonado- Monkey Island

Early morning, a private van will transport you to the airport to fly to Puerto Maldonado, the Biodiveristy Capital of the World. Here, we will tour the city explaining how this remote town founded by rubber barons in 1912 has transformed into one of the must-see locations in Peru. Afterward, we will embark by boat, weaving along the Madre de Dios river, searching for caimans, herons, and other incredible animals. At our Amazon lodge, we will relax and eat a delicious lunch, before kayaking to Monkey Island. This island hosts numerous species of inquisitive, playful, and one-of-a-kind monkeys. A scrumptious dinner awaits you back at the lodge where you will settle into our comfortable jungle bungalows for the night.
Day 2

Lake Sandoval

After breakfast, we will boat to the area of Lake Sandoval. Our 2-hour hike will pass through Aguajal forest and along swamps before arriving at Lake Sandoval, itself, home to caimans, river otters, and a vast variety of birds; with luck, it's even possible to spot a Jaguar! After lunch at the lodge, the next stop is an Amazon Observatory, built on top of a ginormous tree, the Shihuahuaco, which provides a breath-taking panoramic of the jungle. Afterward, choices include relaxing in an Amazonian pool, fishing, or flying through the jungle by zipline. We will eat a delicious dinner at our lodge as the sun sets, to enjoy a wonderful night-hike by headlamp to spot caimans, frogs, and other nocturnal jungle animals.
Day 3

Cocha Perdida

After breakfast, we will take a 2-hour hike to Cocha Perdida (the Lost Lake) using machetes to clear our path as we walk. This lake hosts an amazing ecosystem that is considered a refuge for a huge variety of animals. Afterwards, we will eat lunch and take a break at the lodge to prepare for our afternoon adventure. Following lunch, we will begin another 2-hour hike, this time to the Briolo and Gamitana Rivers to enjoy fishing in the Amazon. We will return to the lodge via canoe, to optimize our chance to observe turtles, caimans, butterflies and other insects . Back at the lodge, we will indulge in a warm dinner and settle into the cozy bungalows, to enjoy our last night in the jungle.
Day 4


Our last morning, we will journey back to Cusco first by boat, then by private bus to the airport, and finally by plane from Puerto Maldonado to Cusco. As we exit the airport, another private van will return you to your hotel for the night, to relax and reflect on your amazing trip to one of the most biodiverse areas in the world.


At the agreed time we will visit  to your Hotel.  Your briefing is usually programmed one day before your program and usually in the evening. However  If your program starts on a Monday, your briefing will be programmed for the Saturday prior to your program and during the morning only. Therefore, please consider this when booking your flights to Cusco.


All of our guides have studied English and Tourism at Cusco National University. They have all grown up in the region and have a true passion to teach others about their heritage. They are fun yet professional and will ensure you are safe and happy throughout your trip with us.


The SPE chefs cook delicious meals that many previous trekkers have raved about. We honor all food restrictions. Be sure to remind your tour guide of any food restrictions at the beginning of your trek. Food is typically served family-style. You will enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner each day of the trek, along with a happy hour of tea and snacks. A snack each morning will also be provided for you to enjoy along the hike.

We can upgrade single trekkers to Eureka Timberline 2XT tents, which are designed for 2 travelers, for hikers who prefer a more private camping experience. You will also have a spacious dining tent to enjoy your meals. We believe it’s the attention to small details that separates us from other tour companies.

We will work hard to create your best vacation.

The Peruvian government allows only a few agencies to operate Inca Trail treks. After an extensive examination of our staff, equipments, and business practices, we have received our authorization for Inca Trail.

We will get you off the trail as quickly and comfortably as possible, if needed, and ensure you get directly to a clinic for treatment.

Group Services:

You will be joining a group of other trekkers like you coming from different parts of the world, a great opportunity to have fun and make new friends. Our Group Services have set departure dates. We apply the 4 to 10 range price when we open a group We need 4 persons to open one group In case you are less number of persons and there is no any group open we will apply the price according to the number of persons. 

Private Services:

These services are arranged just for you and your party, and offer the possibility to choose the departure date, the group size and the duration of the trek. This not only has the advantage of adapting the pace to your physical condition, but also usually means enjoying quieter campsites and meeting less travelers along the route. All private groups include additional services, such as extra porters/wranglers to carry your personal gear, among other benefits.


Southern Peru Explorers operate all our own treks! Often times other companies, especially those offering daily departures, are just an intermediary. They instead send you on your trek with a 3rd party company. We take pride in operating all the treks we sell ourselves, allowing us to uphold the high tour standards we promise, minimize miscommunications, and give you personalized attention you deserve.

Southern Peru Explorers treat our staff like family! Peruvian Porter Law and Regulation dictates minimum standards and wages for porters. We give not only porters but all our staff a wage that exceeds the minimum wage and the average wages paid by most tour companies. Our porters, chefs, wranglers, and guides are all given supplies for the treks including ample food, sleeping bags, all weather clothing, boots, and back support. We also guarantee that our staff have a minimum number of treks per month and that their wage does not change throughout the year, providing them with stable income which helps relieve some of the uncertainties that can arise when working with other tour agencies during low season.

Southern Peru Explorers has great guides! We have a core team of guides that are specifically chosen for each group we book. They are trained, are able to speak English, and are very charismatic. We are constantly receiving feedback from our previous guests to make sure our guide team stays strong and providing quality service to our clientele. For every 12 people on a trek, we provide one guide, ensuring that each guest receives personal treatment and you dona t feel lost in the crowd. While other guides may take 16+ people, we limit our groups to 12 people to make sure your experience is unique to you. Upon request we also have guides that speak a multitude of languages including French, Italian, German, Chinese, and Japanese. Furthermore, we have guides that specialize in specific knowledge including ornithology, history, archaeology, and other plants and animals.

Southern Peru Explorers prides ourselves on our equipment! We choose quality brands for our tents, sleeping pads, and water filters. This equipment is checked for quality before each trek and renewed yearly making sure every trekker is comfortable and safe.

Southern Peru Explorers cooks up delicious meals! On our treks we provide not only breakfast, lunch, and dinner but also snacks and a break for tea. These are customizable around allergies or other special diets including vegetarian, vegan, Atkins, Gluten-free, etc. at no extra cost. Each of our meals is cooked by our chefs from quality natural ingredients from the area. We do not bring pre-packaged junk food nor do we serve generic bland dishes. Our chefs, trained with HACCP hygiene practices, will bring you safe, healthy, and delicious meals throughout your trek.

Southern Peru Explorers cares about the environment. On our all treks throughout the region we strive to be little to no impact. We train our staff to uphold our environmental expectations and our leave only footprints policy.

Southern Peru Explorers operates lawfully. There are many tour operators who do not declare all of their sales or alter their earnings to avoid paying certain taxes. However, here at Southern Peru Explorers we pay our 19% IGV, consumption tax, as well as the 30% tax due from all income.

Southern Peru Explorers has satisfied customers. From our testimonials and reviews you can see that our clients leave content and with wonderful memories. We have been operating for years proving our consistence and reliability in the services we provide.

While other tour companies over deep discounts for the same trek, this does not mean that they offer the same service as us. While price is always a deciding factor in one decision, please take into account the vast amount of differences between our agencies and others.

By supporting responsible tour companies, you are promoting the preservation of the land you are touring and helping rather than hurting local communities and business!

In order to hike the Inca Trail, you must have a permit which we will obtain for you.
The first step to making this booking is to make sure these permits from the government are still available.
These links are updated in real time. You just need a permit for your start date.
