FOR CLUBS & GROUPS
Best Time to Go:
Spring Sept/October & Fall May/June
Rainy Season: their Summer Nov - April
Available Dates: Your Choice
Private Dedicated Group:
(Based on availability of Permits)
Trip Leader Comp: None. Can be added if necessary (which will result in a higher price).
Group Space needs to be held approx 7 - 9 months in advance of departure date because of the limited trail permits, so pre-planning is important. They only issue 500 permits per day – 200 trekkers and 300 guides, porters and cooks. That is very limited.
Because the permits are sold on a first- come, first-serve basis, you need to book your permit (i.e. trip) well in advance because permits are coveted like gold dust.
Deposit to hold space: $ 250
Deposit is 100% refundable without penalty for 60 – 90 days (based on when you book) so you can promote within your group to see if it’s a “GO”.
Liability to club: NONE
Easy Payment Plan available to all your travelers
Final Payment approx 50 days before departure
Flights – best pricing these days is found online during airline specials. We don’t book flights, but we'll gladly let you know the airlines specials to share with your group. Always recommend your travelers book directly online with the airline – discourage 3rd party sites like Fly.com, Expedia…
Group Air is available, but pricing is no longer competitive with online and seats cannot be selected (so you will get a lot of middle seats).
Inca Trail Weather: The weather on the Inca Trail varies throughout the year from sunny and dry to wet and cold. Temperatures rise slightly during the wet season (October thru April), as this is actually Summer in the southern hemisphere. Days are usually bright and sunny with temperatures around the 20 °C (70 °F) mark. If rain falls, then often the temperature will drop quite significantly, and combined with the wind chill factor, it can actually feel quite cold.
Rainy Season on the Inca Trail, generally from Mid October – Mid April
