Trilha Inca
Uma aventura pelo caminho do Sol

Our authorization to operate this trek

Only authorized agencies can book and operate the Inca Trail trek. The authorization is issued every year for 1 year to certain agencies that must prove their ability to operate and do the Inca Trail. The only real guarantee you have when choosing an agency is that the agency is authorized by the Peruvian Government. Whether you choose to do your Inca Trail trek with us or another agency, you must absolutely do it with an authorized agency.

About our website

Our Agency IPT is Peruvian. It is registered with the RUC (Public Register Number) 20600652461. It is authorized by the Ministry of Culture under the number AUT00080. We are an authorized Tour Operator since 2003. Every year since 2003 our Agency has successfully renewed its authorisation for the following year. We would like to clarify that accreditation is not a simple formality. To be authorized, an agency must justify that it has the economic, human and material means to operate, that it has sufficient and competent staff (who must also be authorized) and finally an inspection takes place to verify that the equipment and security conditions are respected. Without failing once, our agency has been able to guarantee all this for 18 years!

Please notice that the 2nd authorization for 2018-2020 has been automatically renewed for 2021 because in 2020 there were no treks.

3. Consult an existing reservation

Knowing that only authorized agencies can make reservations, we invite you to view an existing reservation from the ministerial website and see that our agency has made the reservation.

  1. Log in to the Ministry of Culture website (note that the suffix stands for Government / Peru).
  2. Go to the BUSCAR RESERVA menu (Check for a reservation).
  3. In the Código de reserva field, enter the code 0105230BK29-1 then the Buscar (Search) button. Note that due to privacy concerns, the reservation is for a trek already done.

The corresponding official booking appears, as below, with our Agency's name IPT.
