FAQS

What is the Inca Jungle Trail 3 days 2 nights?

It is a short version of the Inca Jungle Trail 4D/3N or Inca Jungle Trail Classic, ideal for adventurers with limited time. It allows you to live an equally intense adventure combining mountain biking, canoeing, zip lining and trekking through the lush jungle and the long-awaited exploration of Machu Picchu.

An equally challenging and unforgettable experience that will bring out your adventurous spirit, while achieving a connection with nature.

What are the differences between the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N and the Inca Jungle Trail Classic (4D/3N)?

The differences lie in the resting places, lunches and some activities during the trek. An example is that in the Short Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N, the trekking that goes from Santa Maria to Santa Teresa, a stretch that allows you to know coffee plantations, with a short break in a family farm, where you have a small informative talk about the customs and traditions of the local people is not performed.

Note: In both treks, you do adventure activities (biking, rafting and zipline) and visit the Cocalmayo´s hot springs.

Are the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N - Group Service departure dates guaranteed?

We understand your concern regarding the guarantee of departure dates. Only in extreme cases of dangerous weather conditions or natural disasters may we be forced to postpone the departure date for safety reasons. Other than these exceptional cases, your tour date is 100% guaranteed.

Regarding the minimum number for group reservations, we require a minimum of 2 people to guarantee the departure.

What is the difficulty of the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N?

Biking: To do this activity you only need to have basic to intermediate experience, since the circuit is done on paved terrain and downhill.

Zipline: To do this activity you only need to follow the indications of the professionals and enjoy the activity.

Do I need travel insurance for the Inca Trail Jungle 3D/2N?

Travel insurance, although optional, is highly recommended for this or any other trek, since, in case of any incident or emergency during the trip, it offers immediate support and assumes the costs of care, transfer or treatment that may be required. Having this support provides peace of mind and security in destinations where private medical services can be very expensive. In addition, the insurance coverage facilitates coordination with local institutions for a quick response.

  • mapfre.com
  • intermundial.es
  • fiatc.es

What happens if it rains during the programmed adventure activities of the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N?

In case of light rains, activities such as downhill biking and rafting can be carried out normally, after evaluation by professionals. In case of heavy rains, activities may be postponed and in extreme cases cancelled to safeguard the integrity of our clients and staff.

Will I be able to charge my devices during the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N?

Yes, throughout the tour we will have resting places such as hotels and restaurants, where you can charge your cell phone, camera or any other device you may have (remember to have the standard voltage adapters and plugs used in Peru). However, it is also recommended to bring a portable battery for the more remote places during the trek, as there are no power sources.

Is there cell phone signal coverage on the Inca Jungle Trail 3D/2N?

During the entire circuit, we will pass through villages and small towns (Santa Maria, Santa Teresa and Aguas Calientes) where the signal is optimal for communication. On the other hand, during the adventure activities and the tour through the trails, the signal is sporadic, having a little signal in some of the highest points.
