The Inca Trail

4, 5 & 7 Day Inca Trail Availability

To hike this winding trail through the Andean mountains is to walk in the footsteps of the ancient Incas: to trek through history, from the Sacred Valley to the cliff-side ruins of Machu Picchu. It is a powerful, unforgettable experience.

Hiking the Inca Trail requires a GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PERMIT obtained by a licensed Inca Trail Tour Operator—like Alpaca Expeditions. The government only releases 500 permits to start the Inca Trail each day, and EVERYONE needs a permit (even professional crew!) so dates sell quickly. It is imperative to book these treks 5-6 months in advance.

Explore your preferred date and permit availability for the 4, 5, & 7-day Inca Trail tours.

2-Day Inca Trail

Short 2-Day Inca Trail Availability

Six hours of hiking along the famous Inca Trail, and time to explore Machu Picchu... this is our "short" Inca Trail hike that offers an overnight option at our exclusive campsite, or a hotel stay.

Permits for the 2-Day are on a separate permitting process and are generally always available for this short Inca Trail trek.

Please contact an Alpaca Expeditions Sales Team Member about availability about these overnight hikes... or jump in and book!


Alternative Treks

Alternative Treks Availability

Because Alternative Treks do not go on the classic Inca Trail, they are not regulated by the government and do not require a permit. This means they are easier to book, more readily available, and equally as beautiful and rich in history. They are also less crowded than the classic Inca Trail.

Join us for any number of alternative treks, including the Salkantay Trek, Lares Trek, Ausungate & Rainbow Mountain Trek, Choquequirao Trek, or Huchuy Qosqo Trek!

Because these treks don't rely on permit limitations, you can jump in and book.
