Peru is a trekking wonderland with towering, glaciated mountains; intricate and well-preserved ancient ruins; absolutely stunning alpine valleys, lakes, rivers and meadows; unique wildlife; and indigenous cultures still living traditional lifestyles. All of our Peru Treks are portered and/or stock-supported and feature elaborate and comfortable camping accommodations, transport of supplies, local transportation, a professional camp chef, local support staff, and all necessary permits and fees.
Our Peru treks focus on two spectacular areas, the most well known being the maze of ancient trails established by the Incas around Cusco that end at or near Machu Picchu. The most famous of these treks is of course the Inca Trail, but we also offer treks on two lesser-known routes, the Salkantay and the Ancascocha. The second area we run trips is the stunning Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash mountain ranges in central Peru. These areas are wild and remote, and feature some of the best treks in the world, literally.
We invite you to read more about our Peru treks below, and please don't hesitate to call us at 1-888-966-TREK (8735) with any questions or to book a spot today!
The Inca Trail - what 98% of people coming to hike in Peru come to do - is really the tip of the Iceberg when it comes to Peru trekking adventures. Home to a stunning section of the towering Andes Mountains, Peru offers an array of lesser known, but equally or more impressive treks. Many of the best hikes are on Inca trails that aren't the "Inca Trail." Salkantay, Ancascocha, Ausangate, and a hundred others are stunning treks that follow ancient Inca trails past incredible ruins and into stunning mountain scenery. The advantages of hiking one of these lesser known Peru trails is that you avoid crowds and get to have as good or better of an experience as THE Inca Trail. With Wildland Trekking, they still include Machu Picchu!
If the Inca Trail is what you most want to hike, then look no further than Wildland Trekking! We have guided hundreds of guests across this famous, historic trail to Machu Picchu. With Wildland you can expect the best professional Peruvian guides, personalized tours of Machu Picchu and other historic sites, fantastic cuisine, top-notch gear, dialed-in logistics, wonderful accommodations, and thorough risk management. In other words, you can expect a world-class experience on a world-class trekking route. Our Inca Trail tours are all-inclusive, premier hiking vacations.
Several hundred miles northwest of Machu Picchu is the town of Huaraz, which rests in the foothills of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. To the southeast of Huaraz is the Cordillera Huayhuash. These two areas comprise the second highest mountain range in the world, next to the Himalayas, and are arguably home to the most under-appreciated Peru trekking routes. It's for this reason we offer hikes in these areas, and we firmly believe they are the highest quality trekking experiences we offer in Peru. We hope you'll consider joining us to see for yourself how incredible they are!
