Peru Active & Adventurous Vacations


  • Trekking in Peru

Why is Peru a great place for an active and adventurous vacation?

South America is a paradise for active and adventurous travellers but Peru specifically= has a lot to offer. The well-developed infrastructure that easily connects the whole country with multiple flights, railroads and bus routes along with almost infinite options for activities of varying difficulty levels will exceed the expectations of the pickiest travellers. Try everything from soft adventure activities in urban centres to the extremely challenging summits of the snow-capped Andean mountains. 

What are the top active and adventurous activities to do in Peru? 

Hiking the Inca Trail. is definitely at the top of the the list for adventure travel in Peru. However, for those travellers that want a little more comfort on the way or want to discover a route that is not as well-known, there are many other high altitude treks in the Peruvian Andes, for instance, Salcantay and Lares Treks that offer an insight into local history along with breathtaking views of the mountains. Taking a flight over Nazca lines and sand boarding in Ica is another exciting activity that adventurous clients will enjoy. Of course, taking a hike with a local guide in the Amazon Rainforest to spot exotic animals is certainly an adventure for a true globetrotter.
