• Traverse high mountain peaks and sub-tropical valleys, with scenic lagoons, natural hot springs, and Inca remains.

  • Visit genuine Andean Highland communities, living a traditional lifestyle.

  • See (and buy!) high quality, hand-woven products directly from the villages where they are made.

  • Enjoy a relaxing soak in some lovely hot springs after trekking.

  • Full, guided tour of Machu Picchu ruins after the Lares trek.

  • Shorter and longer treks available through this beautiful mountain region.

The trek was an absolute success! We reached new heights - both physically and personally - and had an amazing time.

We have both done a fair amount of recommending Andean Trails, and the Lares Trek because of it. The trek was truly a one of a kind experience that not only will we excitedly discuss, but also rank as one of the best travel experiences we've had thus far.
