SALKANTAY & INCA TRAIL 7 DAY
Our longer option to hike the Salkantay integrated with the Inca route, as other Incan trek trails require a permit. Thus, this trek will have to be booked further in advance. Our 7 Day Salkantay Trek does not run during February due to the closure of the Inca Trail and many sites along the route.
THE BEST SEASON TO DO THE SALKANTAY HIKE
The wet season between November-April will guarantee you rain, you may be in luck with showers between November and December. However, January to March you are going to encounter some fairly big downpours. This is the warmer season so if you are not put off by rain you get the benefits of warmer days and nights. The dry season between May and October graces you with wonderful sunshine in during the day and clearer skies, which means you be able to see the views without cloud and fog. At night the temperature can drop close to freezing or below. Please note that February The Inca trail and other protected sites gets closed for the entire month for essential maintenance.
