For many, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is on their ultimate bucket list. This 45km/26-mile trail leads to one of the 7 World Wonders and is one of the most popular hikes in the world. This hike is spectacular, no matter which route you choose. Each day on the trail will pass some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet and amazing Incan ruins. It is a unique and unforgettable adventure for anyone choosing to do it.
Inca trail hiking involves a lot of planning and prepping. In order, to enter this historic route, you must have a GOVERNMENT ISSUED PERMIT obtained through a licensed Inca Trail Tour Operator – like Amarutrek Expeditions. The Peruvian government only releases 500 permits each day and EVERYONE needs a permit – even our crew – so they sell fast. It is imperative to book these treks 5-6 months in advance.
