Inca Trail Oficial Permits 2024

Permits for the Inca Trail in 2024 will be available in October. However, trekking companies are already accepting reservations. If you want to hike the Inca Trail in 2024, you can book a date of your preference and inform your trekking company about a second option.

Trekking companies will always try to secure permits for the preferred date, but as there is only a limited number of permits available, it’s good to have a second option in mind. There are 500 permits available per day for the four-day Inca Trail. Since this number is divided between tourists and staff (guides, porters, and cooks), there are only 200 permits available for tourists, as the remaining 300 are for the staff.

Inca Trails

There is a shortage of permits, especially in the months from May to September. As the summer approaches in the northern hemisphere, thousands of people prepare to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Are you one of them, or do you prefer the Short Inca Trail? For the Short Inca Trail (two days), there are 250 permits available per day. Generally, they are available for a longer time, but they also sell out quickly. In this case, we also advise you to make the reservation as early as possible.

What if none are available? Don’t be sad because there are alternatives such as the Salkantay trek and the Inca Jungle trek. As you can read in this blog post, alternatives are often even better than the classic Inca Trail.
