Inca Trail Early Registration Discount
Peru begins offering permits for the Inca Trail (does not include the Short Inca Trail Lodge-based Tour) at different times each year, but normally between October 1 and December 15 for the following year. We secure Inca Trail permits for our guests the first day they become available, and cannot guarantee specific dates until they are secured.
To secure spots on a permit we must have verified, registered guests, so we strongly recommending registering before October 1 of the year prior to your intended trip, and we offer a 5% early registration discount for doing so. We have a very good success rate with securing permits, but if unsuccessful we offer a full transfer or refund of your deposit.
Feel free to call us at 800-715-HIKE (4453) with any questions about the Inca Trail permit process.
