The 2-days Inca Trail is a fantastic option for those who don't have the time or desire to
hike the full length of the Inca Trail. With beautiful scenery, a wide variety of flora and
fauna on display, and a visit to the Inca Trail's most beautiful site (Wiñay Wayna), you
get to enjoy all the best bits of the Inca Trail condensed into a one day walk. Covering
a distance of 16 km/10 miles the 2-days Inca Trail is not too challenging which makes
it perfect for families with children and those on a tight schedule. This option allows
you to experience some of the secrets of the Incas without camping. We are going to get
"Wiñay Wayna", a beautiful place and well worth the climb, you scramble up a steep
flight of stairs.
