Inca Trail's Best Kept Secret: Availability!
There's good news. And even unprecedented news. Permits for 2-day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu are plentiful and available almost every day. The reason for the availability is that the permits for 4-Day & 2-Day hikes have been separated. Anyone with internet access can go to the government website and check availability for 4-day and 2-day hikes.
Permits for 2-day hikes are now listed separately from permits for 4-day hikes. And more good news is that more permits are available for both the 4-day and 2-day hikes. Up to 250 more people per day. Even when permits have sold out for 4-day hikes, permits may still be available for 2-day Inca Trail. However, we recommend that you confirm your dates through a licensed tour operator.
If your heart is set on a multi-day hike in summer of 2016, check out the "alternative" hikes including CHOQUEQUIRAO, SALKANTAY, LARES, CACHICAATA Treks, and others on request. Cachicaata Trek can be combined with 2 Day Inca Trail to become a 5 day combination hike. Contact our US office to ask about this option.
Don't be discouraged if you can't get permits for 4-Day Inca Trail hikes. Peru is a haven for hikers and nature lovers. There are many other options. Adios Adventure Travel expert staff can be contacted in the US office and are available by phone (1-757-304-8002) or email info @ Adios Adventure Travel to answer questions and help you choose the right activity.
