Peru is a beautiful and diverse country that attracts millions of tourists every year whom want to explore the rich culture, history, and nature of Peru. The recommended duration for visiting Machu Picchu depends on your travel preferences, interests, and the activities you plan to include in your itinerary. Here are some considerations: 

One Day Trip

Some visitors opt for a day trip to Machu Picchu, taking a train from Cusco or Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes and then a bus to the archaeological site. Our agency offers tours with diferet train companies, you could book the tour with Inca Rail or the tour with Peru Rail. This allows you a few hours to explore the site.

Overnight Stay

Many people prefer a tour to spend at least one night in Aguas Calientes to have more time at Machu Picchu. That way you will have time to rest the best you can, including the possibility of exploring the site in the afternoon and returning the next morning.

Hiking Options:

If you’re interested in hiking, there are various trekking options to reach Machu Picchu, such as the classic Inca Trail (4 days), the shorter Inca Trail (2 days), or alternative treks like the Salkantay Trek and Choquequirao. These longer treks provide a more immersive experience.

Multiple Days in the Area:

Some travelers choose a tour that apart from Machu Picchu includes the Sacred Valley (check our option) to spend more days, exploring other archaeological sites like Ollantaytambo and Pisac before heading to Machu Picchu. This allows a more comprehensive exploration of the region.
