Perhaps the most famous and iconic trek on the planet, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu can be found on ‘Bucket Lists’ all over the world. It´s pretty much the main reason people come to Peru and, together with Machu Picchu, it offers the best photographs one could wish for. And the good news is that whether you are young or old, in good shape, the Inca Trail is for everyone! But with limited permits released each year, the Inca Trail is always fully subscribed months in advance and so many travelers who visit leave Peru disappointed.
At Action Peru Treks we want to take the stress out of arranging your trek on the Inca Trail. We are now taking bookings for the 2020 season; with just a small deposit we will confirm your place on one of our tours and, more importantly, request your permits for the Inca Trail on your preferred date.
Permits will be released ahead of time for 2020, and as soon as they are released we will submit all required information for you/your group. Because of the popularity of the trek we cannot guarantee that your preferred date will be available, and so we request you provide us with 3 alternative dates to maximise your chance of getting the required number of permits.
So if you’re considering ticking the Inca Trail off your bucket-list in 2020, don’t risk leaving it until the last minute to reserve. Just complete our booking form, and we will take care of all the arrangements for you Inca Trail trek.
The popularity of the Inca Trail has grown significantly in the last 15 years, with many thousands of trekkers using the Inca trails each year. Recognising the need to maintain the trail for future generations, the Peruvian Tourism Board introduced a permit system that allows only a limited number of people (500) to hike the Inca Trail each day.
The 500 daily permits includes the porters, cooks, and guides who support the tour groups, leaving just 200 permits available for travelers.
Once purchased, permits are non-refundable and non-transferable between travelers, meaning that if permits are sold out for a specific date there is no way to get new permits for this date.
For this reason it is highly recommended to secure your permit early. At APT we are one of few local indigenous tour companies able to secure permits before they are gone.
*IMPORTANT If your passport number changes between reserving your Inca Trail permit and the start of your trek (e.g. due to renewal) you must send us a photocopy of the new passport information as soon as you have it so we can update your permit. You must also bring both your old and new passports with you on the trek.
If you arrive in Cusco and did not advise us that you have a new passport number, and that your information has changed, you will not be permitted to enter Machu Picchu and Action Peru Treks will not be held responsible. In this situation it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay the extra expense of returning to Cusco or Machu Picchu (transportation, food and other expenses).
