Climb Misti volcano, an excellent beginner’s peak and trekking challenge for your adventure holiday.
For those wanting to climb Misti (5,822m/19,101ft), the volcano is accessed from Arequipa.
Misti is the smallest in the range of three volcanoes in the area – Chachani (6,075m/19,931ft) and Ampato (6,310m/20,702ft) the other two.
It is no less imposing though, and its near-perfect conical shape is beautiful when seen on approach from the valley.
The dry season (Apr-Nov) is the best time to scale Misti, when walkers are rewarded with stunning views of its crater and the surrounding volcanoes.
Our fully-supported and guided trips are the perfect way to tackle this big peak, and you need to be well acclimatised before starting this trek.
We offer three more volcano climbs in the Arequipa area – Ampato, Chachani and Coropuna – and all are an adventure for climbers and walkers.
Contact us to plan your climb of Arequipa’s volcanoes.

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru is one of the greatest treks in the world.
Our 4-day Inca Trail features superb guides plus fairly paid and well-treated porters, so you can focus on enjoying the incredible journey to Machu Picchu.
Walk through ancient Inca ruins and dramatic Andean scenery as you make your way up and over the Dead Woman’s pass.
No Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is complete without seeing a gorgeous sunrise over the ruins from the famous sun gate.
We offer daily Inca Trail trek departures with porters who help to carry your personal and all communal kit on the trek to Machu Picchu.
Your days are spent hiking through various eco-systems, surrounded by mountain scenery unchanged for centuries.
Every step takes you closer to the legendary Machu Picchu, a beautiful Inca site that lay hidden from the world for centuries.
Read our blogs about the Inca Trail – a typical day, the meals you can expect and training tips.
Over many years we’ve built close relations with porter communities through our long-standing support of several community projects, including a Porter’s Project and Huchuy Yachaq.
You can also rely on our Cusco office to offer support and advice before and after the trek.
Hike in style and comfort on our Salkantay trek, walking through magnificent scenery and staying in luxury lodges on your trip to Machu Picchu.
This Salkantay trek is a once-in-a-lifetime and stylish alternative journey to the famous Inca ruins at Machu Picchu.
You walk from one cosy mountain lodge to another through the Cordillera Vilcabamba, a spectacular mountain range.
The enchanting valley of Soraypampa is the starting point of the trek, by many accounts more scenic and exclusive than the famous ‘Inca Trail’.
Hike through changing altitudes and varied terrain while you marvel at the beauty of the Salkantay Peak, Salkantay Glacier and Humantay Glacier Lake.
After a day’s walking, indulge in the comfort of enchanting mountain lodges with their innovative local cuisine and the warmth of the local people.
All the lodges offer private rooms with en-suite bathrooms, hot showers, bar/lounge and cozy reading rooms – some even have a jacuzzi!

- What was the highlight of your holiday? Was there a low point?
Highpoint - the great tour guides and visit to Machu Pichu. Low point was a flight cancellation in Lima.
- How would you rate accommodation/ food/ guides/ overall organisation?
Fantastic! The hotels were all lovely and the tour guides were friendly, smart and helpful. In Lima when we ran into trouble with a flight cancellation, Alan's team on the ground went to great lengths to rebook us on a new flight (with a different airline). Had it not been for your office in Peru we would have been stuck in Lima over night and missed out on Tambo del Inka, which was a lovely resort.
- Did you feel you benefitted the local communities?
Somewhat. We are not shoppers, so each time we wound up at a 'market' we didn't really buy.
- What would you like to do differently next time?
Spend more time in Cusco and the Sacred Valley. We could have skipped Lake Titicaca.
- Out of interest why did you choose the places you visited and why Andean Trails to organise your trip?
Our goal was to visit Machu Pichu and Alan put together the rest of the trip around that highlight. We came away with a great feel for Peru and (fingers crossed) would love to revisit one day.

» Peru Highlights Holiday
The training on the glacier was great, very well organised and useful. Accommodation/food/guides/organisation - extremely well organised especially compared to other companies in Huaraz. Suitable equipment was provided which proved to be of a high standard. The tents were ideal for the conditions and the sleeping bags were more than adequate for the temperature. The food was beyond what I expected in terms of quality. It was plentiful and tasty. The guides were knowledgeable and encouraging and prepared to go the extra mile to help.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
