What is the Inca Jungle Trek?
The Inca Jungle Trek is a more alternative, adventurous, adrenaline filled 4-day option which includes restaurant food and hotel stays. Quite literally as you will adorn mountain bikes, zip wires and white-water rafts to get you to Machu Picchu, alongside a pleasant half or full days hike. This trek lets you not only pass through the Jungle as other treks do but you spend all your time moving through it by boat, bike and boot.
Inca Jungle activities
This trek is a great choice as it needs no Inca Trail Permit. So, if you are a little impulsive or last minute you can still have a good chance of bagging a place. Alongside the wild rides, you visit the majestic Hot Springs in the charming town of Santa Teresa to soothe those aching muscles and be graced with visits to coffee and Cacao plantations with a tour. You also walk parallel to the high altitudes of the Inca Trail, following in the lowland along the railroad tracks into the heart of Aguas Calientes.
It demands a lower level of fitness than that of the Classic Inca Trail and Salkantay and allows you to bask in the warmth of the Peruvian Amazonian jungle for longer. It is one of the more luxurious tours as your nights will be spent in hotels. So, if you’re looking for adventure in the day and comfort during the night with a hot shower and plush beds this is the trip for you.
