World famous Inca trail to Machu Picchu, South America's best hiking experience

Machu Picchu was connected with the Inca city of Cusco and the rest of the Inca Empire by trails of excellent design in strict and perfect harmony with the natural Andean environment. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, crossing the Andes mountain range and sections of the Peruvian jungle and rainforest. Our amazing Inca Trail adventure passes several well-preserved Inca ruins and settlements before ending at the "Gate of the Sun" on Machu Picchu Mountain.

Booking your Machu Picchu hike

If you have decided to hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, please keep in mind that the daily number of people accessing the trail is restricted and a government-issued inca trail trekking permit is required. Please check availability of inca trail permits before booking any hiking tour that requires it.

Distribution of Machu Picchu hiking tickets for 2019 season will begin early October. A few hours after they went on sale last year, permits for several dates in April, May and June were sold out.

If thinking about a Machu Picchu tour in 2019, it is very important to book as early as possible. By doing so, be confident you will be the first in line and most likely get the Machu Picchu hiking permit needed for your awesome Peru adventure.
