The Inca Trail Hike | Why go with Alpaca Expeditions

Did you know that a permit is required to hike the Inca Trail? The government has a restriction on the number of permits released per day. For example, the longer treks are only allowed 500 permits per day, inclusive of tour staff and workers. This means permits sell out quickly. Only licensed tour operators, like Alpaca Expeditions, can purchase permits on your behalf, so plan your trip soon.

At Alpaca Expeditions we strive to make sure each visitor has the time of their lives when they visit Peru. We are here to answer any questions that you have. We promise a safe and fun adventure on the Inca Trail. If you want more information, or are looking to book, contact us today.
