We offer one and two-day short hikes around Cusco for those wanting to get out and explore the Andes. Our two-day short treks in Peru include one night of camping and two days on the trail. We offer short Rainbow Mountain treks which follow a unique itinerary designed to get you out of sync with other hikers, so you have more time to spend enjoying this spectacular scenery. The Short Inca Trail tour gives you the chance to hike that most famous Peruvian hike, and even walk through Inti Punku – the Sun Gate – into Machu Picchu. This 2-day Inca Trail hike gives you one day hiking the Inca Trail, and one day at Machu Picchu, with an overnight at Aguas Calientes.
Huchuy Qosqo is another of our short treks in Peru, a not-too-strenuous hike through pastoral farmland to the little-visited archaeological site of the same name (“little Cusco” in Quechua), and down to the Sacred Valley. This short hike can also be extended to include a visit to Machu Picchu.
