• Join this tour to trek the Cordillera Blanca and hike close to some of Peru's most wonderful mountain scenery.

  • All hotels, acclimatisation walks and treks organised for you so you can walk with peace of mind.

  • Extended Santa Cruz trek takes in the little-hiked Ulta Valley.

  • Fantastic local guides will show you the best of the Cordillera Blanca.

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

Our 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!
