Peru Treks

peru treks to salkantayOur peru treks are located in the three principle Andes mountain ranges of Southern Peru, the Vilcanota, Vilcabamba, and Urubamba, and in the sub-tropical jungles at the base of the Amazon. We follow original ancient Inca treks through traditional Andean villages appreciating the rich flora and fauna and numerous archeological sites along the way, including the marvelous Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.

We specialize in choosing peru treks that are less-traveled, offering our guests a true wilderness experience. All treks are reasonably-paced with varying levels of difficulty to accommodate all fitness levels. Trips include a tour leader, guides, camp staff, and a cook. Delicious meals are prepared with the highest standard of hygiene and served in a comfortable dining tent.

All staff are trained to follow Leave No Trace wilderness camping guidelines and many of our peru treks include authentic cultural encounters and participation in community-based projects with local communities.

Our top-quality equipment includes double/triple-occupancy storm-shield tents, comfortable chairs and dining tables, cooking and kitchen utensils, and a well-stocked first-aid kit. Because trekking is our specialty, we offer a wide range of exciting options from which to choose, and we are also happy to customize any itinerary for private and small groups.

Lares Valley

These are our premier treks for those wanting to experience the incredible beauty and rich culture of the Andes by taking the less-traveled route. Authentic encounters with Quechua communities and spectacular scenery give these treks a wonderful blend of tradition and splendor.

Passing through the rich pastoral regions of the Cordillera Urubamba, we traverse high mountain peaks and sub-tropical valleys, stopping along the way to enjoy scenic lagoons, natural hot springs, and Inca remains. The remoteness of the area has allowed its people to preserve traditions of llama and alpaca herding, potato cultivation, and colorful weaving dating back to the Incas. These fascinating treks offer a first-hand look at the life of the Andean farmer and a journey into a region of outstanding beauty.

We also have a community-based project in association with Dragoman Overland to benefit the villages of this area. Please visit our link on Responsible Tourism to learn more about our work in this area and how you can help.


Salkantay to Machupicchu

The dramatic Cordillera Vilcabamba is a wonderful alternative for those who want to take a less-traveled and exceptionally beautiful route to Machu Picchu. Mount Salkantay is the 2nd largest mountain in the entire Cusco area (2nd only to the mighty Mount Ausangate) and is said to be the “guardian” that stands between the mountains and the jungle.


Choquequirao

With the Quechua name meaning “Golden Cradle,” the mysterious and dazzling Inca city of Choquequirao is located in the beautiful landscape of theVilcabamba Range over the Apurimac River Canyon. Dense forest covered this Inca site for many years and has just recently been revealed. According to historians, Choquequirao was the dwelling of the last rebel Incas of Vilcabamba, and like Machu Picchu, the Spanish were thought never to have discovered it.


Ausangate

This trek through the Cordillera Vilcanota’s rugged snow-capped peaks offers spectacular scenery and a unique encounter with life in the Andean altiplano. Hiking completely around the mystical Mount Ausangate (6,380 m.), we camp near hot springs and glacier-fed multicolored lakes inhabited by numerous bird species, including Andean geese and the magnificent Andean Condor.


Huchuy Qosqo

This trek is like no other in the Cusco region. It is a perfect option for persons who were wanting a little bit shorter of a trek, with a lower altitude (the highest pass is 3,800 meters). While this trek is the shortest of the alternatives, it also has the most ruins to see along the way as well. One of the better parts about the way that we do the trek though is that we stay at the home of a typical host family on the side of the mountain, overlooking the Sacred Valley of the Incas below you.


Vilcabamba – Machu Picchu

pt_01.

A unique journey into a region filled with wondrous natural beauty and history, this is a trip that few travelers to Peru get the chance to experience. The area known as Vilcabamba is located in the high jungle area that links the most rugged part of the Andes with the Amazon Rainforest. The Incas chose this place as their final refuge from the Spanish conquistadores for its strategic remoteness and aesthetic landscapes. Traversing Andean cloud forest and high mountain jungle, we discover the mysterious archaeological remains of a lost time along the way.


Anta Pampa to Maras/Moray to Machu Picchu

After having studied the environment and especially the quality of the grasses we have recently started our reintroduction program of Andean camels (alpacas) that consists of bringing alpacas from the Vilcanota region. The alpacas return to the area after having been extinct for 200 years.This helps the economy of the local communities and it also helps preserve the genome of the species as they spread over their original habitat. In this way we commit to the triple-bottom-line of sustainable tourism outlined by Sustainable Travel International (Environmental Practices, Socio Cultural Practices, and Economic Practices).
