Check the Calendar

Quickly see if your preferred dates are available for Inca Trail Permits for the 4, 5, & 7-day Inca Trail tours.

Hiking the Inca Trail requires a GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PERMIT obtained by a licensed Inca Trail Tour Operator—like Alpaca Expeditions.

The government will only release 500 permits to start the Inca Trail each day, and EVERYONE needs a permit (even professional crew!), so tickets sell fast. It is imperative to book these treks 5-6 months in advance.

2021 Inca Trail Permits Now Available

In an effort to support the changing landscape of postponed 2020 trips, dates for 2021 treks are now open.


You can now select your 2021 Inca Trail trek dates when you're ready to dream and scheme a great adventure next year.

Dates for September 2020 and onwards are available, too!

With only 500 government-issued permits made available per day, and everyone including guides and porters needing one to access the trail, days sell out quickly.

Get your choice of dates, and secure next year's adventure when you're ready.
