LAS ADVENTURE are able to book and collect your permit in person. This means that as soon as your permit is confirmed, you are guaranteed to trek the Inca Trail on the date that you want to travel.

As a way to preserve the ancient Inca Trail, the Peruvian authorities currently cap the number of Inca Trail trekking permits to 500 per day, which includes trekkers, guides, porters and other support staff. Each passenger is issued a government permit; this prevents undocumented trekkers hiking the trail. Because of this limitation, permits often sell out several months in advance and you must book well ahead to secure your place, particularly if you want to trek in the high season between June and October.
