4 Day Inca Jungle Trail & Biking Adventure to Machu Picchu

Our 4 day Inca trail adventure lets you experience Peru by foot and mountain bike. The first day of this exciting Peruvian adventure takes you to Abra Malaga where the mountain biking portion of the trip starts. Later we hike near the Inca Trail off the normal path finally reaching Machu Picchu. On this Peruvian tour we come across two thermal hot springs, one in Santa Teresa and the other in Aguas Calientes located at the bottom of Machu Picchu. Optional 1 night stay in Aguas Calientes so you can soak in the thermal hot springs here.
