Peru Hiking Tours

Let’s get outdoors! Our Peru hiking tours are designed to get you out into nature, appreciating the extraordinary landscapes of Peru. Whether you want to hike to Machu Picchu or explore lesser-known mountainscapes and destinations… we can make it happen.

Beyond the beauty of nature and the sprawling vistas, the communities we visit during our hiking tours help you learn about Andean life and culture. These experiences are integral to our trips. After all, these communities are an intrinsic part of this beautiful mountainscape!

You might also like our Peru Adventure Tours where you can bike, canoe, kayak, zipline, and more, all in the context of community interaction and sustainability.

Looking for something different? Let’s craft a custom Peru itinerary that checks all the boxes just for you. We’ve been creating personalized trips for years and we love an interesting challenge! Tell us what you dream of doing and we’ll do our best to make every detail happen.

Peru Trekking Tours for All Types of Travelers

Not all of our Peru hiking trip options are long treks. If you do want to trek to Machu Picchu, we have multiple options and we’re always happy to create a custom itinerary for such an adventure.

But we also love to feature shorter hiking trips in Peru that prioritize community interaction and cultural learning, more so than the physical exertion and challenges.

Whether you want a physical challenge or an outdoor-focused community visit, we love helping visitors plan the perfect Peru hiking tour. Check out our options below and feel free to reach out if you have specific destinations or options you’d like to include.
