What Circuit will people who hike the Inca trail follow in 2024?

Every individual who embarks on the Inca Trail expedition is obligated to follow Circuit 03, ensuring a visit to Machu Picchu. This rule applies universally, without any exceptions for specific companies.

Will the Inca Trail Price increase for 2024?

We would like to inform you about the expected price changes for the Inca Trail tours in 2024. As you may know, a new Porter law mandates that a porter should make $140 for the 4-day Inca Trail trek and insurance benefits which are expected to increase the operational costs of the Inca Trail by 200% to 300% compared to 2023.

Is it possible to reserve the Inca Trail permit using an expired Passport?

Indeed, it is possible to make a reservation for the Inca Trail permits using an expired Passport. However, once you acquire your new Passport, it is essential to inform your travel agency promptly so that they can update your Passport number in the booking. This ensures that the correct information is reflected for your hike on the Inca Trail.

What is the reason for needing to obtain the Inca Trail permits well in advance?

Securing Inca Trail permits in advance is highly recommended for a smooth and successful experience. The Inca Trail is recognized as the most popular trek in South America and holds the top position among Peru’s trekking routes. However, due to strict limitations, only 500 permits are issued daily for travelers, porters, chefs, and guides alike. Out of those, only approximately 200 permits are allocated for actual hikers heading to Machu Picchu. By booking your tour early, you can ensure that you don’t miss out on the incredible opportunity of hiking the Inca Trail. 

Benefits of Booking Your Inca Trail in Advance.

Secure your 2024 trek by making a reservation prior to October 2023 to guarantee the 2023 pricing. It’s important to note that the implementation of the New Porter’s Law, which mandates tour operators to enhance the benefits provided to Inca Trail Porters, will lead to an adjustment in pricing for all treks in 2024.

Booking in advance grand you stay in the best campsites. For those who make last-minute bookings, Phuyupatamarca becomes their final campsite, which requires a 6-hour hike to reach Machu Picchu. Consequently, they are likely to arrive at Machu Picchu around noon. On the other hand, those who plan ahead will find themselves at Wiñaywayna, a mere 2-hour hike from Machu Picchu, making it a more convenient and time-efficient option.

Cons of Booking your Inca trail in Advance

The Inca Trail permit is non-refundable and non-transferable. In the event that you encounter any unforeseen circumstances and wish to cancel your Inca Trail reservation, please be aware that your deposit will not be eligible for a refund. Furthermore, if you are considering changing the departure date, this option is not available. The sole method for rescheduling your departure date is to buy a new permit.

Tips for Booking Your 2024 Inca Trail Trek:

Exploring the Inca Trail is only possible through a licensed tour operator such as AB Expeditions. We take pride in being entirely local, committed to sustainability, and rooted in indigenous culture.
  • To increase your chances of securing Inca trail permits for your preferred dates, it’s advisable to make reservations for the trail at least half a year in advance.
