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
ALL confirmed departures for ‘trekkers wanted groups’ in 2018 – last updated 2.1.18 Check out any of our alternative trek routes http://www.apus-peru.com/treks/trek-comparisons.html
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!
Please note: The final price is based on the final number of people that depart on the day. See this link for advantages/disadvantages of the Apus Peru Trekkers Wanted system: https://www.apus-peru.com/treks/

People confirmed: 1. Places remaining – 11. Words from the group: I’m a 38 year old American Gentleman. Avid hiker and outdoorsman, super social and friendly, with a deep appreciation for travel and adventure. After 11 years in a New York City Finance career I am abandoning my life and possessions to go on a global pilgrimage for the next few years. And what’s a global pilgrimage without a 9 day spectacular hike to Machu Picchu?? What I found particularly enticing about this trip is not only the challenging nature of it, but the chance to explore Choquequirao and Vilcanota without the crowds. A true taste of what the region must have been like in days past. So I’m extending a welcoming invitation to any other enthusiastic hikers that might be interested in joining me on this once in a lifetime trip.
