What is the best time to do the excursion?

Peru is a very large country with many different climates, for that reason it would be very difficult to define a good time to visit different places. However, we consider that the best season is from April to November. For the Inca Trail, the hottest season is from December to March, but it is also the rainy season. That is why we think that it is more pleasant to do a sunny but cold excursion than a warm but rainy excursion. For this reason, we recommend doing it preferably between May and October. It should be noted that the Inca Trail is open every day of the year except in February, the maintenance month

How many days of acclimatization do I need before starting the Inca Trail?

Yes, all our travelers will be provided with a sleeping bag for camping. Our sleeping bags are effective and durable in protecting from temperatures as low as -18ºC (0ºF). Also, inflatable mattresses.

What is the best time to do the excursion?

Peru is a very large country with many different climates, for that reason it would be very difficult to define a good time to visit different places. However, we consider that the best season is from April to November. For the Inca Trail, the hottest season is from December to March, but it is also the rainy season. That is why we think that it is more pleasant to do a sunny but cold excursion than a warm but rainy excursion. For this reason, we recommend doing it preferably between May and October. It should be noted that the Inca Trail is open every day of the year except in February, the maintenance month

How many days of acclimatization do I need before starting the Inca Trail?

If you come from a country that is less than 500 meters above sea level. We recommend that you spend at least 2 days in Cusco to acclimatize to the altitude before starting the Inca Trail, since the highest point of the trek is 4,200 meters above sea level.

How long in advance should I make my reservation for the Inca Trail?

You must reserve your Inca Trail permits at least 3 months in advance. Since there are only 500 spaces available per day: 200 are assigned to tourists and 300 to porters, cooks, tour guides. If the number of spaces is exhausted, you will have to choose another alternative date. For this reason we recommend you book in advance.

Yes, no reservation will be guaranteed unless you have made a payment of a deposit of 400 per person through our 2 payment methods mentioned in our Book Now form. Important: None of the requested deposits include transaction fees.
