Inca Trail Permits

Screenshot-2017-10-19-1-Inca-Trail-PPT.fw
Inca Trail Permits go on sale Monday, January 7th! Permits for the Inca Trail Trek are now given on a “first-come, first-serve” basis. Therefore, if you plan to trek during the most popular months of the year (April-Sep) it is important to make your reservation with Wildland Adventures as early in the new year as possible when permits go on sale; many key dates sell out within the first few weeks of January each year. Immediately upon receipt of your deposit at the time of your reservation, we require your full name (as shown on your passport), date of birth, nationality and passport number and expiration date.

Beyond the Inca Trail: Optional Hikes at Machu Picchu

So you want to hike along Inca trails to Machu Picchu, but even the 1-day Inca Trail Trek seems a little too daunting or time consuming? Consider one of two optional hikes that you can do right at Machu Picchu; either Cerro Machu Picchu (Machu Picchu Mountain) or Wayna Picchu (also spelled Huayna Picchu). Cerro Machu Picchu is great for families with younger children and both hikes are perfect for travelers who don't want to devote a full day to hiking; these Machu Picchu hikes still give you the thrill of an Andes trekking adventure to Incan ruins but can be done in less than half a day. Permits are required in advance for both of these options, so you can’t just wait till the day-of to decide. I've done both hikes and as Wildland's Peru Program Director, I'm happy to discuss the greater and lesser pros (we don’t believe in...
