Dates and availability
1. Full passport details are required at the time of booking to purchase Inca Trail permits, entrance fees and transport tickets. Delays to provide this information may result in booking fees or changes to your itinerary. Details provided must be accurate as per your passport bio page. Any discrepancies may result in denied entry to the Inca Trail.
2. This trip starts in Lima at 2pm on Day 1. This allows time after the welcome meeting to explore Lima. We recommend booking flights out of Cusco no earlier than midday on Day 8 to allow for possible delays on the final section of the Inca Trail or if you are required to take a Covid test. Intrepid staff will be able to assist in booking any required tests in Cusco.
3. A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. The single supplement applies to all nights of your trip and is subject to availability. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.
4. Parts of your trip go above 2800 m/9200 ft where it is common to experience some adverse health effects due to the altitude, regardless of age, gender or fitness. Please consult your doctor for professional advice about travelling at high altitude if you have a health condition.
