What to Do When Inca Trail is Sold Out

Because the government of Peru limits the number of daily Inca Trail entry permits each year, the Inca Trail sells out many months in advance. When the Inca Trail is sold out, Guiding Peru offers a variety of amazing Inca Trail alternative tours that still allow spectacular hiking on remote Inca Trails with included entry and guided tour of Machu Picchu.

Reviews of Alternative Treks to Machu Picchu

“Our guides Reuben, Marco and Celia were great. They took care of everything. I enjoyed the conversation and learning about their country. I liked the food and think the meals were well rounded. The hotels were clean and accommodating. Good team. I’d book with them again.”

“Awesome leadership, great preparation, outstanding food, a new adventure at every turn and….the contrast from 14000 ft. peaks to jungle canopy was what brought it all together….two worlds, one civilization, new friendships, and lots of fun. We’ll be back!”

LOUIS C., SCOTTSDALE AZ

“One final note – over the four days, one couldn’t help looking over at the other groups of trekkers, observing and even chatting with along the trail. From groups of 2 to what looked like other groups of 30+ people, I don’t think I found any group that was as well looked after as our group. You can stop looking now – go ahead and book with Guiding Peru.”
