Connecting travellers to guides around the world

4-day Inca Trail Connection with Lares tour

4 Days


This is an alternative route to the very famous four days Inca Trail we have created, especially for late travellers. In the Lares trek, you will encounter a display of thread weaving fabrication as made originally by the Incas while trekking in the region of Lares. The Inca Trail will provide you with the occasion to visit the last part until Machu Picchu entering by the Sun's gate.
