All fundraising monies must be received by Walk the Walk before Monday 25 September 2017 to potentially receive a refund after this date. Please note the minimum amount to be raised is £600.

    All Walkers can raise up to £3,349.99 and receive a refund based on the above breakdown. If you would like to receive a refund of more than £1,000 this means that you will be classed as a Professional Fundraiser under the Charities Act 1992, Section 60. This only applies to you if you intend to raise £3,350 or more and intend to accept the refund.  

    If you would like to receive a Refund of your Challenge Tour Costs and intend to raise £3,350 or more, you are required to complete a separate document within 14 days of applying/registering; this is in accordance with the Charity Commission and Charities Act 1992.

    The maximum amount that can be refunded to any Walker is the total paid by the Walker for the standard Inca Trail Challenge Package. This does not include the Deposit, Walker Pack & Kit Fee, booking fees, insurance or personal spending, or extensions. Please note, as this Inca Trail, Peru launched in June 2016 and prior to final price confirmation due to airlines, the refund you receive above £1000 will be based on the actual final tour costs, which will be sent to you. The prices above have been calculated on the higher estimated tour cost, therefore you may receive less than the above amounts, depending on the tour cost but no more.

  6. Extensions, Extra Supporters and Singles

    (Information for the 2017 challenge and should be used as indicative only)

    Due to the complexities of organising a challenge such as this, in a very remote area, we are unable to offer different types of packages for this challenge as these are all advanced group bookings for the anticipated number attending. We are unable to alter flights prior to departure, or offer Ground Only packages or add-on Supporters or guests to the itinerary.

    The itinerary is jam packed and a lot of fun to do as a team, from the Inca Trail itself to the delights and wonders of Lima, Cusco and Aguas Calientes. Please note: This challenge is limited to only accept 2 single accommodation packages due to porter regulations.
