  3. 4 Day Classic Inca Trail Hike – Late May Early June 2016

    My husband and I are looking to do the Classic Inca Trail 4 Day Hike. Our plan is to travel from La Paz to the Salt Flats and ending in Buenos Aires and still undecided if we want to do this 4 Day Trek at the beginning or end of our trip. We understand that May is not as hot and less busy with tourists so we are thinking of going late May. It looks like our travel dates are flexible depending on how may people are interested in joining our 4 day trek during May or June.

    We are fit and in our mid 30’s from Canada.

    Christina and Judd

    • Hi Christina and Judd,

      I know you said you are looking to do the Inca Trail in early June 2016, however if you are flexible, I am set to arrive in Cusco on June 24th, 2016 and am looking to join a group leaving for the same trek around June 26th. If you happen to be available then and still wanted to add people to your group, please let me know! I am 24 years old, fit, and from California.

      Thanks!

    • Christina and Judd,
      I am a 30 yr old female from California looking to do the 4d hike leaving on May 28. Would that work for you guys?

  4. Is anyone interested in joining two Australians (mother/ & daughter) on a 5 day Ausangate trek between 8th and 12th July 2016? We’re vegetarian if that makes a difference.

    • Yes! I am very interested in the Ausangate trek. I also happen to be vegetarian! But I am traveling by myself and I’m finding it difficult to book any trek with just one person. I was planning on going in May but I could consider a later date if this works out. I am a young woman in my 20s and I live in Montana USA so mountains and trekking are very familiar to me. I’ve also visited Australia.

    • Hi. I’m also an Aussie and looking at Ausangate trek options around this time. Not sure if you’re still looking but I’m keen for these dates. Vego food is always welcome.

      • Hello,

        I am also very interested in the trek around the time mentioned. I’ll be turning 30 in June and been looking to do this trek for some time now. I’m a vegan and come from Washington State!

  5. Hello everyone, I would love to join the 4 day Handy in the Andes Community Clean-Up Lares & Machu Picchu trek in March. I’m a 23 year old German girl who loves hiking, I would love to give something back to the environment while enjoying its beautiful gifts. How can I join the group?

  6. Hello, Is anyone keen to join me on the “Choquequirao Salkantay, Inca Trail Machu & Picchu 12 days” trek some time in June this year?! Im from Australia, 35yrs and female – also climbing in Huaraz beforehand. Looks like fun! – Thanks, Meri.

  7. Hi there, we are two men in our mid-30s aiming to do the 9day Choquequirao-Vilcabamba-Macchu Pichu trek, departing date being somewhere between Oct 25th and November 10th. Ideally lokking for 5-6 extra people to bring costs down. We’ve both been to Peru several times and are multilingual relaxed types. Anyone interestedm please contact at axarlis@hotmail.com . Happy trails.

  8. Hi. Do you have dates for one person or two people in September 2016 with start dates 7th to 24th for the clasic inca trail.
    Many thanks
    Liz

    • Hi Liz. The classic inca trail sold out some time ago, however we are two Aussie ladies doing Choquekiraw 4 nights/5 days and adding on a 2 day/1 night trip to Machu Picchu starting on 8 September 2016. Interested?

  9. Hi, we are two very fit experienced ladies 53 & 63 who are planning to do Choquequirao with Machu Picchu extension in early September 2016 (probably around 5 September) and looking extra people who may want to join us to bring the cost down. My email is bernadette@bernieboo.com

  10. hello, How are you?. My father and I will go on August 8 to Cusco, we are from Peru and we want to do trekking from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu, between August 13 and 14 to initiate the trip. We would like joining with some group, greetings.

    hola, qué tal?. Mi padre y yo iremos el 8 de agosto a Cusco, somos de Perú y queremos hacer la caminata de Choquequirao a Machu Picchu, entre el 13 y 14 de agosto para iniciar el recorrido. Nos gustaría juntarnos con algún grupo, saludos.

  11. Hi

    I am looking to do the 12d trek choquequirao, salkantay, machu picchu in April 2017. Looking for other trekkers to join in on the fun. I am 43 year old female from Australia.

  12. Hi Bernadette

    I am also looking to do the trek during those dates! I’ve sent you an email, please do let me know your thoughts!

    Naadhira Mahomed

    • Hi Naadhira,
      Sorry for not replying earlier, I have only received your email this morning. We are still travelling on those dates to Choquequirao 5d/4n, then a 2d/1n Inca trail straight after that. Are you still interested? We have booked and paid a deposit, but i suppose it might be possible to add a person if you would like to join us. Only three weeks to go, so it is pretty urgent now. Let me know

  13. We have booked a five day trek of Ausangate and the Rainbow Mountain from Sept 12-16. We’re an American couple from Maine in our mid 30’s who love hiking, traveling and exploring new countries (we just got back from Everest Base Camp in Nepal in May). Would love at least 1-2 other trekkers to help bring the cost of the trek down and join in on the fun of exploring Peru with us! We’re also doing the two-day tour to Sacred Valley, Pisac, and Machu Picchu/Huayna Picchu on Thursday, Sept 8-9 if anyone wants to join on that part or both tours. We left a few days in between these two tours to hang out in Cusco, acclimate, and may do another day trip then depending on how we feel. Hope to hear from you!

  14. Hello

    I am a sole traveler from Switzerland (female, 47) and I would love to do the Vinicunca-Rainbow Mountain-Trek (2 days), starting from 17 October 2016 onwards.
    I’m quite an experienced hiker.
    I would love to find someone who would like to join me or I would also like to join a group.
    Please give me a shout if you are interested.

  15. Hi all – I’m looking into doing a 12-day trek Choquequirao Salkantay, Inca Trail Machu & Picchu in the summer of 2017. Two travelers from the US in our late 30s can do any dates from late June through Aug 2017. We are active and would love the company of others and meeting new people. Saving on per person costs would be a perk as well. Please reach out to me if you are also considering a 12 day trek in the summer of 2017 and we can work together to pick a date that works best! Post here or contact me at nal20xc (at) yahoo (dot com)

  16. Hello! I am looking to do a 4 or 5 day trek sometime between July 1st and July 9th, 2017. Unfortunately my days aren’t flexible because that is the week I will have vacation from work. I’m female, in my 30’s, vegan (if it matters), from California, and most likely will be traveling solo. I’d love to join a group if possible, and make new friends from around the world! Can’t wait to hear from you! Thanks!

  17. Hi,

    I am travelling from Australia and interested in doing the Inca trail 2 days that is 13th & 14th April 2017. Im looking to join a group if anyone interested.

    Cheer

  18. Hi Aman

    Instead of 2 day Inca trail, are you interested in 6d 5n salkantay/Inca trail leaving on 19th April. We have a group of 5 at present. I am from Australia too.

    Kind regards

    Hayley

  19. Hello, I’m from San Francisco, looking for at least another female, or a group of people to do Classic Inca trail trek 4 days/3 nights). Would fly on sat 5/27 to Cusco and back on Sat 6/3 preferably (perhaps 6/4). Please let me know if you’re interested.
    Alternatively, I’m looking to join a group to do Classic Inca trail during May or June. Please contact me.

    • Just to add to my previous original note: I’m fit and hike every weekend. I’m comfortable w/ 10-12+ miles w/ at least 3,000+ elevation climb. I am friendly and flexible, and can adapt to any group and any pace accordingly. 🙂

  20. Young couple from Canada looking for people to book Choquequirao 4 days in end of august (25 or 26) + extension to Machu Picchu (5th day).

  21. Hi, I am most likely traveling solo and would love to find a group to trek with sometime between April 1st- 7th. I prefer a 2-4day hike, but am also wondering about prices? Please let me know if there is a group I could join, and what the cost might look like. Thank you! -Erica

  22. Hi Sophie. Sorry, my plans have now changed and I’m not looking at this trek anymore. All the best with your trip!
