Mark W. of California said this about his recent trip: “…the trip was amazing. We had a great guide, Teddy, and perfect weather. Machu Picchu was definitely worth the trip and hike.”

The first step is planning early. Since the Peruvian government enforced a daily permit limit of only 500 (including tourists and porters), permits sell out months in advance. Therefore, Outdoor Travel Adventures recommends planning your trip approximately 6 months ahead of your desired travel dates…the earlier the better. As of early June 2011, permits are nearly sold out through Sept 2011.

Once the process begins, Outdoor Travel Adventures will assist with everything from flight planning to packing tips. Their featured Inca Trails itinerary, the Machu Picchu Pilgrimage, is a favorite amongst discerning clients. Mark W. of California said this about his recent trip: “…the trip was amazing. We had a great guide, Teddy, and perfect weather. Machu Picchu was definitely worth the trip and hike.”
