INCA TRAIL PERMIT AVAILABILITY 2018
Permits sell out REALLY fast – do not delay in making your booking. Once confirmed, we will list it here if you require a “group” trek. When permits sell out for Inca Trail entry dates, listings will be deleted.
Once permits are sold out no agency in Cusco can sell you permits, and permits are non-refundable & not exchangeable. If you have missed out on permits, please consider one of our excellent alternative treks. We highly recommend the Lares to Machu Picchu trek, of 4 days described here http://www.apus-peru.com/treks/lares_machu_picchu.htm

Listed on this page are groups of people looking for others to join them on the date specified. They are guaranteed departures, except where noted. Our maximum group size is 12, for a good quality experience.
If you have seen the trek that you want to do, but want others to join, then the best way to do this is to email us, make a deposit and guarantee the trip departure. Then, others have the opportunity to join you (however, it is never guaranteed that others will join). We recommend getting your trek listed at least 3 months prior to departure!
