Hiking and Trekking
Peru has some of the best hiking and trekking in the world. Yes we have the world famous Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu but it is also home to the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu which you can do as a camping trip or as a luxury trek staying in five star comfort.
You can also visit the mountain of Ausangate, again camping and trekking or in luxury, this time in community lodges.
Here we have a selection of treks and hikes available in Peru.
