Don’t Wait for ‘18: Book Inca Trail Travel by October 5th

October 5, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Award-winning, small-group tour operator G Adventures shared a time-sensitive message with its sales partners and travel customers today: if you or clients have long imagined trekking Peru’s famed Inca Trail and pictured yourself on its summit, looking out at the sacred site of Machu Picchu – or if you have friends, family or clients who are ready to fulfill this travel dream in 2018 – then today (Wednesday October 4th) is the best date to act.

Inca trail permits go on sale Thursday Oct 5th, and the Peruvian government will only award permits to tour operators with confirmed travelers for 2018. G Adventures cannot save spots for tentative trekkers.

In 2016, the company secured close to 8,000 permits on behalf of its customers around the globe. It has since collaborated with the local government to share feedback and strengthen the new timed entry procedures that were implemented to better protect the integrity and legacy of Machu Picchu.

For its long commitment to responsible tourism practices and the region as a destination, G Adventures is proud to have been recognized as the Best Inca Trail Tour Operator by the Regional Direction of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Cusco in 2016. It is also the largest employer on the Inca Trail, providing the safest and most financially reliable work conditions available to Inca Warriors and their fellow Quechua community members in Peru’s Sacred Valley region. More than 560 local guides, porters, cooks, drivers and office staff, in fact, gain good jobs in Inca Trail tourism thanks to G Adventures customers.

With 29 different itineraries that include four-day hikes up and down the Inca Trail, and guided tours that start at just AUD$1,449. per person, the options to experience this wonder of the modern world abound.

So, spread the word, confirm your plans, and reach out to your G Adventures Global Purpose Specialist for assistance booking 2018 treks today.
