The Train To Machu Picchu

The journey to Machu Picchu for senior citizens can be taken typically by either the train or by a One Day Inca Trail Hike. Both are equally accessible to senior travelers with a reasonable level of fitness. The train is the easier option and a first choice for those with limited mobility. From the train you will take a shuttle bus from Aguas Calientes village up to the citadel of Machu Picchu. Your very own private guide will ensure you have time to absorb and truly experience insights into the world of the Inca with your time there.
