For many people, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is on their bucket list. This 45km/26 mile trail that leads to one of the 7 World Wonders is one of the most popular hikes in the world. And it’s for a good reason. The hike is spectacular, no matter which route you take. Each day you will pass some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet and roam around amazing ruins. It is a unique adventure.
But hiking this route involves a lot of planning and prepping. In order to enter this historic route, you must have a GOVERNMENT ISSUED PERMIT obtained by a licensed Inca Trail Tour Operator – like Glamping Peru Treks. The government will only release 500 permits to start the Inca Trail each day and EVERYONE needs a permit – even our crew – so tickets sell fast. It is imperative to book these treks 5-6 months in advance.
