Inca Trail Permits

Holidays to the Pantanal

Both the classic 4-day trek and the shorter 1-day Inca Trail require you to have one of the special Inca Trail permits, issued by the Peruvian government. Anyone trekking the Inca Trail, whether tourist, Peruvian, guide or porter, has to have one of these, and only 500 permits are issued for each day. That might sound like a lot, but these permits go very quickly, especially for busy months - which for the Inca Trail is more or less any time from May to October. Obviously we check for permits before accepting any Inca Trail holiday bookings, but it is definitely something that needs booking in advance.

If your dates are fixed and there are no longer permits available, then you have will have to look at an alternative route such as the Salkantay trek - permits are issued to a particularly passport number and once issued they are non-transferable and non-cancellable: once they've gone, they've gone. However, some of the alternative routes are superb, so don't despair! In fact, many people actually rate the Salkantay trek more highly than the "classic" Inca Trail...
