The Train To Machu Picchu

You can take the train to Machu Picchu on any of our group tours that include the Inca Trail Trek should you decide that you don't want to hike. However, if you are short on time and don't want the extra few days in Cuzco enjoying the surrounding area, we have a selection of group tours where the train to Machu Picchu is the only option available.

Taking the train to Machu Picchu is an adventure in its own right. A combination of buses and trains are used to reach the World Heritage Site, the journey is packed with stunning views and dramatic landscapes.
