3. Inca Trail, Peru
The Inca Trail is one of the most famous hikes in the world — and for good reason! At the end of your 4 or so day hike, you’ll be rewarded with a visit to Macchu Picchu. Be sure to book your trip months in advance, because, in order to maintain this important trail, the government has strict limitations on the number of visitors allowed each day. You’ll pass small villages, other Inca ruins, a lake, and, of course, breathtaking views of the Andes before you reach your final destination.
