I had an amazing trip! A once in a lifetime experience, and memories I will cherish forever ... the entire experience from booking to trekking was exceptional, I couldn't expect higher standards.

Lock in your 2017 Inca Trail

16/12/2016

Inca Trail

Do you plan to walk the Inca Trail in 2017?

If you’re counting on trekking the Inca Trail in 2017 and haven’t locked in your trip yet, don’t miss out! Permits were released on 19 December 2016 - and will run out fast. If you book early enough we can secure a permit for you. And by early we mean now!

To protect the popularity of Peru’s iconic trail leading to Machu Picchu – consistently listed as one of the world’s greatest walks by nearly every media who has ever compiled such a list – a permit system was introduced to limit the number of people on the Inca Trail to 500 a day. The 500 people a day includes cooks, porters and guides, so by the time permits are issued for these support crew, only a fraction remain for tourists and trekkers. Do the math and you’ll quickly understand why you need to book your Inca Trail trip very early.
