Inca Trail Permits for 2017 & 2018 – Official Availability Online

Even though we have daily departures for Inca Trail hikes on 2017 and 2018, it is good to make sure that there are available entrances for the day you are thinking of starting the trail. There are only a certain amount of entrance tickets for the Inca Trail for each day. To find out if there are available tickets for the day when you want to start the trail, see the chart for the year 2017.

You can click on a month and see the number of entrance tickets available for a certain day.  If there are open spaces for the day when you want to start the trail, you should make reservations as soon as possible, since tickets may run out quickly. The chart shows real information on the amount of available entrances to the Inca Trail.

On the top of our page, you can click on one of the Inca Trail or Machu Picchu tours to see the itineraries. It is also possible to personalize the itinerary to your liking.

As an alternative option for the Classic Inca Trail Tour in Peru offers you a Short Inca Trail 2D/1N. Short Inca Trail perfectly suits those who are short on time for hiking the Classic Inca Trail but still have interest to explore the ancient Inca road and hike to Machu Picchu or in case the permits are sold out.

Tour in Peru team updates weekly  Short Inca Trail Availability. For your comfort, check availability yourself and choose one of the months which suits you best. For any further information do not hesitate and contact Tour in Peru Team.


  • The number of available spaces from March to December 2017 are not set officilally. This will happen on December 19th 2017.
  • However, note that not having the permit availabilty ready does not mean you have to wait for the system to be updated, NO WAY!!! You know most tourists in your shoes are already making their reservation as far in advance for the next season (from March 2017 to January 2018), and you should do the same!  Hope your comprehension!

Important: If there are no spaces available on the day you are looking for (in 2017 or 2018), we invite you to continue surfing our site, and choose one of our varied tours of Machu Picchu or tour packages to various other cities in Peru. We also suggest that you see the alternative ”Inca Jungle tour”, which combines cycling, hiking, boating, ziplining, and more.  Also see the availability of entrance tickets for Machu Picchu.

Keep in mind that the Inca Trail CLOSES for FEBRUARY every year for maintenance so you can NOT go on this tour during this month, but can still visit MachuPicchu by choosing other regular options.

We invite you to see our Inca Trail and Machu Picchu Tours for more information about the trail and about Machu Picchu.  Also see our page about Inca Trail Physical Preparation to get ready and have a more enjoyable trail experience in 2017.

If you still want to ride the Inca Trail, we have a great alternative option-the Short Inca Trail 2D/1N, contact us for more information and book your trek now.
