Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 2024

Your Adventure is Waiting for you here!

Perhaps the most famous and iconic trek on the planet, the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu can be found on ‘Bucket Lists’ all over the world. It´s pretty much the main reason people come to Peru and, together with Machu Picchu, it offers the best photographs one could wish for.

And the good news is that whether you are young or old, in good shape, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is for everyone! But with limited permits released each year, the 4 days Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is always fully subscribed months in advance and so many travelers who visit leave Peru disappointed.

At Action Peru Treks we want to take the stress out of arranging your trek on the tours of the Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu. We are now taking Inca Trail reservations for the 2024 seasons; with just a small deposit we will confirm your place on one of our tours and, more importantly, request your permits for your preferred date.

Inca Trail permits will be released ahead of time for  2024, and as soon as they are released we will submit all required information for you/your group. Because of the popularity of the trek we cannot guarantee that your preferred date will be available, and so we request you provide us with 3 alternative dates to maximize your chance of getting the required number of permits.

NB. Please note that the  Inka Trail to Machu Picchu is closed each February.

Hiking the 26 miles along the Classic Inka Trail is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Inca Trail trekking is perfect for those who wish to fully immerse themselves in the Inca culture, as it literally follows the footsteps of the Ancient Incas on one of the world´s oldest pilgrimage trails.

On our 4 day Inca Trail tour you will climb spectacular mountain passes that provide breathtaking views across the magnificent snow-capped Andes, stop at the most beautifully preserved Inca ruins where our experienced indigenous local tour guides will provide a tour and a history lesson, and walk through remote mountain communities where the way of life continues as it has for hundreds of years.

We will even share our path at times with the wild Alpacas and Llamas that roam freely in the tours of the Inka Trail.

Sleeping under canvas in the most beautiful remote spots you will be mesmerized by the breathtaking display of stars and constellations in the South American sky.

We ensure that your camping experience is as authentic but as comfortable as possible, using only the highest quality camping equipment and providing amazing meals from our mountainside kitchen. This way you can enjoy nature to the fullest, without having to give up comfort.

But of course the jewel in the crown of this tour is our arrival at the Lost City through the Gate of the Sun for your first views of the 7th Wonder of the World that is Machu Picchu. We guarantee this is an Inca Trail 4 days memory that will stay with you for a lifetime.

So if you’re considering ticking the Inka Trail off your bucket-list in  2024, don’t risk leaving it until the last minute to reserve. Just complete our Inca Trail 4-day booking form, and we will take care of all of the arrangements for your trek.



The popularity of the Inca Trail has grown significantly in the last 15 years, with many thousands of trekkers using the Inca trails each year. Recognizing the need to maintain the trail for future generations, the Peruvian Tourism Board introduced a permit system that allows only a limited number of people (500) to hike the Inca Trail each day. The 500 daily permits include porters, cooks, and guides who support the tour groups – leaving just 200 permits available for travelers.

Once purchased, permits are non-refundable and non-transferable between travelers, meaning that if permits are sold out for a specific date, there is no way to get new permits for this date.

It is highly recommended to secure your permit early. As a local indigenous tour company, Action Peru Treks is able to secure permits before they are gone!


You can complete your booking with us in 3 simple steps:

*IMPORTANT: If your passport number changes between reserving your Inca Trail permit and
the start of your trek (e.g. due to renewal) you must send us a photocopy of the new passport
information as soon as you have it so we can update your permit. You must also bring both
your old and new passports with you on the trek.

If you arrive in Cusco and did not advise us that you have a new passport number, and that
your information has changed, you will not be permitted to enter Machu Picchu and Action
Peru Treks will not be held responsible. In this situation it will be the responsibility of the
customer to pay the extra expenses of returning to Cusco or Machu Picchu (transportation,
food and other expenses).

Why Book with Action Peru Treks?

Action Peru Treks is a sustainable tour operator, our focus is to provide a top-notch trekking experience without compromising the working conditions of our workers. Action Peru Treks is a fully licensed, professional trekking tour operator and proud to be a completely local indigenous company that promotes responsible tourism in Peru. We pride ourselves in supporting the local communities from and through which we operate our tours. We achieve this both by sourcing our staff and supplies from the local area, or donating a percentage of our income to support local projects. One way we have been giving back to the community was donating to the school in Saccsayhuaman community, helping to pay for its roof and we continue to donate a small part of each trek in order to help out.

We highly recommend you take advantage of this Andean Village Immersion experience offered at no extra charge with all of our Classic Inca Trail and Premium Inca Trail treks. Those who visit this Quechua village frequently say that this is one of the most memorable experiences of their trip to Peru! The afternoon before you begin your hike you will be transported, with one of our native guides, to the home of one of the porters who will be assisting you on your trek. While there you will enjoy a traditional Andean meal and have an opportunity to be educated about many aspects of life in a customary Andean village. You will have the opportunity to share in agricultural activities. You will also meet the wives and children of some of the porters and have the chance to learn customs and hear stories from them. In the evening after your meal you will get to participate in their native music and dance! The children especially love to dance and are the best teachers! You will spend the night with your host family and begin your trek early the next morning. This is a potentially life changing experience and we hope you will elect to participate and get a first hand experience of life in the Andes!
