Welcome to Wayki Trek
specialist in inca trail
Come experience the heart of the Inca Empire with Wayki Trek in Cusco, Peru and the surrounding area. Now a World Heritage Site with a population of 400,000, Cusco was once the capital of the Incas, the largest pre-Columbian civilization in the Americas. From Cusco is a series of trails that lead to important Inca sites, such as the famous Inca Trail to Machupicchu and the less-known but important Inca trail to the ruins of Choquequirao. When you visit Peru, you will marvel at Incan architecture with such precisely cut stone that Incan engineers did not need mortar. With Wayki Trek, you’ll also have the opportunity to soak in medicinal hot springs, take in incredible scenery with plants and animals specific to the area and interact with local people who continue age-old Incan traditions.
Recommended by the South American Explorers Club, Footprint Travel Guide, On the Road Travel Guide and Lonely Planet Travel Guide readers, Wayki Trek has been working with travelers on the Inca trail around Cusco since 1998. Wayki means “friend” or “brother” in Quechua, the language of the Incas that 6 to 8 million people still speak today. The agency is managed by people of Incan ancestry who speak Quechua, Spanish and English. All of Wayki’s guides are from local rural communities and have studied tourism for at least 3 years. Because of both their upbringing and studies, they are incredibly knowledgeable about Incan history and culture. Since its founding, Wayki Trek has been committed to sustainable tourism, making an extremely low impact on the environment while helping local communities.
Wayki Trek offers 12 once-in-a-lifetime treks on the trails around Cusco, including three versions of the famous Inca Trail, tailored to your physical fitness and time constraints. Also available are 10 other tours in different parts of Peru, including trips to the jungle, Arequipa, Nazca and others. Whichever trek you choose, you will have an unforgettable experience with Wayki Trek
