Important Notice!

Trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is great adventures that many travelers dream to take-on. While planning your trip, make sure that you can get your Inca Trail permits in time; otherwise you might have to postpone your trip another year! All trekkers on the classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu are required to buy a trail permit. You need to do this usually several months in advance and it must be done through a travel provider. We at Detour, the Adventure Travel Marketplace will set up your permits with a local provider so you don’t have to worry, but make sure you are looking at dates with permits still available.
