(*) In the event of any changes in Peruvian government legislation concerning Inca Trail access, we will keep you fully updated.

At Andean Adventures Peru, we recommend that all those travelers planning to hike to Machu Picchu in 2018 BOOK AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. This year’s release of next season’s Inca Trail permits has been announced much earlier than usual, and we expect places to sell out very quickly.

These new rules have been announced by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture and SERNAMP (the National Protected Natural Areas Service). For those hoping to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 2018, the new rules mean that at Andean Adventures Peru we can accept your booking for the Inca Trail from the beginning of October 2017. When making your booking, you will need to provide us with all the information required for confirmation of your Inca Trail place (full name, valid passport number, age and nationality of all participants). From January 2nd 2018, we will be able to accept payment for your Inca Trail booking. Please remember that all payments for entrance fees to the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu are non-refundable.

At Andean Adventures Perukeeping all guests to our country fully informed of events that may affect their Peruvian vacation is always our first priority.
