Trekking

Peru Trekking in the Andes

The Peruvian Andes are among the most spectacular mountains on earth. Rising to well over 6000 metres (19000 feet), the peaks are divided into a number of ranges, or cordillera, and provide limitless scope for fantastic trekking adventures. Alongside a stunning variety of geography, landform and climate, Peru also boasts the peerless archaeological remains of the Incas. Machu Picchu, the ancient Lost City of the Incas, is featured on all our trips to the Cordillera Vilcabamba, while our trips in the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash can easily be extended to include an unforgettable visit to what is surely one of the greatest wonders of the world.

Trekking in Peru is considered the most popular outdoor activity for visitors to the country. What's more, trekking allows your Peru travel agency to give you the widest range of options. They can offer you fully outfitted treks, which supply you with all the trekking equipment, along with an experienced staff to assist you on your adventure. This way you can experience being as close to luxury as possible in the Andes.

You can design your own trek for a half day, full day, two day, or even two week experience. In fact, when trekking Peru Machu Picchu, it's recommended that you arrange at least a 10 day furlough. Trekking in Peru is also kid friendly. This means the entire family can experience the enchantment of Peru's diverse terrain.

Peru has some of the most gorgeous landscapes the world has to offer. You can spend a day trekking through Tipon, a little known Inca ruin complex, roughly 40 minutes outside Cuzco. Besides offering you the fascination of the ruins, which consist of a vast walled enclosure with some of the most complex Inca drains, water works and baths, the location provides breathtaking views of the mountains and Urubamba Valley.

Then there's always Huchuy Qosqo, a two day/one night trek. It starts near Chinchero in the Urabamba Valley, near the town of Urubamba, and takes you on a six hour-plus hike across diverse terrain, from high altitude savannah to fertile agricultural fields. You'll camp in Huchuy Qosqo, or Little Cuzco, an intricate Inca site. This trek is considered the best for families, ensuring everyone will have an enjoyable experience.
