CLASSIC INCA TRAIL: If you are booking for the Classic Inca Trail, 4 or 5 days, you must book early to get your desired date. Depending on the month you prefer to hike, you may need to book 6 months or more in advance. The permits for 2023 will go on sale in October of 2022, and many dates are booked out in minutes.
ALTERNATIVE DATES: We work hard to get permits for your preferred date - in fact we normally secure 98% of the preferred dates for our customers. However, we prefer that you also give us at least 2 alternative dates just in case we are unable to secure permits for your preferred date. This ensures we can still get permits for you and make sure you can experience the Inca Trail!
SHORT INCA TRAIL: If you are booking the 1 or 2 day Inca Trail, it is preferred that you also book in advance, however 2 to 4 month in before is possible depending on the date you chose to trek.
