Inca Trail Small Group vs Large Group

Inca Trail Large vs small group travel tours - Group size is an important thing to consider when planning your Inca Trail. There’s no right or wrong answer. The decision depends on your priorities and your preferences. How do you want to do the Classic Inca Trail?

A smaller group can cover more ground in a day. You’ll be able to get out of the hotel faster in the morning and spend above time in the ruins , hike fast or slowy, stay long time in the Phuyupatamarca and Wiñaywayna ruins, Machu Picchu citadel, should you choose.

It’s easier to move around the Inca Trail and other sites in a small group. There are also many small camping that are only available to smaller groups such as Wiñaywayna (100 spaces).

You can only travel as fast as the slowest person in the group, small or large.

Small groups tend to move around faster and your guide is not trying to cater to as many persons. If you are a very social couple then large groups could be fun and you and pick and choose who you want to associate with. If small means van type vs large bus type then vans can get trail quicker and usually close to hike, you can walk fast or slowly, but you will dicide, what long you want to stay. On the big group, you have to wait your group and you can walk slowly.

So don’t shy away from taking your friends abroad. Seek out a quality tour operator provider, ask all your questions and get all your answers—and then some. And then get excited, because you’re about to become the tour leader your friends will always remember.

 

Inca Trail Tours

Many are the routes that take you to Machu Picchu, but none is like the Inca Trail Tours, the most famous pedestrian path in the Americas. After flying from the capital of Perú, Lima, you will arrive in Cusco to walk for four days along a path through forests and dense fog, millenary stone steps and discovering the ruins of ancient fortifications and Inca cities, and all the time enjoying majestic views. 

If you want to visit Machu Picchu, we recommend you to book your Machu Picchu Ticket in advance, so you will enjoy your Vacation in Machu Picchu without any problem.

 

When is the best time to hike to Machu Picchu?

The best season is during the dry season, which covers the months April to the end of September. In October the rains begin and you can find Machu Picchu covered by clouds. If you travel in June, we recommend you to book the Inti Raymi 2020 Tour that takes place in June 24th, and also hike the Palcoyo Mountain Tour, which is an incredible Rainbow Mountain located in the Andes.
