 |  Category: Adventure Tourism, Events

Step 1: Choose YOUR trek. Choosing the right trek for you depends on your how much time you have before, during or after your Spanish studies, and on your personal preferences. The Classic Inca Trail Trek lasts 4 days and 3 nights and the Short Inca Trail Trek lasts 2 days and 1 night. It is important to note that this trek involves a lot less trekking and camping.

Step 2: Check available trek dates. Our travel partner Dos Manos Peru recommends booking your Inca Trail Trek approximately three months in advance, especially for the high season, which takes place from June through August. The Inca Trail is closed during February for maintenance every year. The Peruvian government limits the number of people, including trekkers, guides, porters, etc., that are allowed on the trail to 500 per day. To check the number of spaces available for any day, visit the official Peruvian Ministry of Culture website: or send an e-mail to for updated info.

Step 3: Decide on a travel agency. Every trekker on the trail must book their trip with a travel agency. It is not possible to do the trek on your own. Of course, it is important to book a trek that suits your budget, but it is also important to think about where your money is going. Make sure that your trek includes entrance tickets to both the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu as well as a train back to Cusco. Also make sure that you are booking with a travel agency that practices responsible tourism such as our travel agent Dos Manos. And you will get a discount being an AMAUTA student.

Step 4: Book it! To book with Dos Manos just click here. They will then contact you, usually within 24 hours, with more information about the trek and booking methods. Please don’t wait too long, to avoid disappointment, you really need to book this some time ahead.

Step 5: Finalize the details. Now that you have booked your trek, you will need to make your flight and hotel reservations for Cusco and probably Lima as well as there are no international flights that fly directly to Cusco. You might also want to book more tours for your exciting trip to Peru. We definitely recommend touring the City of Cusco and the Sacred Valley during your time in Cusco. We definitely recommend that you arrive in Cusco at least two days prior to the beginning of your trek in order to acclimatize. If you do the trek after your Spanish lessons, even better! You will want to be healthy and ready to start your adventurous trek on the Inca Trail to the magical Machu Picchu ruins.
