• The Santa Cruz trek in the Cordillera Blanca is one Peru's best treks for scenery.

  • A short walk with maximum high mountain, Andean enjoyment.

  • Hike with just a day pack, past snow-capped peaks, crystal blue lakes and gorgeous views.

  • Camp under the stars in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca.

Best hikes for me were Churup and Arhuaycocha – couldn’t get over the turquoise color of the water!

The guide was amazing – very knowledgeable, friendly, and good at accommodating the different skill levels and interests of the group.

Food was great – very impressed with what they can put together in the middle of the mountains!
