Get off the beaten path to experience a Peru trip that takes in the history, culture, nature, wildlife, scenery, and great food of this amazing country!

Peru's high mountains are full of historic ruins, ancient trails and fast-flowing rivers that make Peru the perfect destination for an adventure trip. Trekking, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding, and even Stand Up Paddleboarding are great ways to get away from the tourist buses to see and explore the real Peru, and to see Machu Picchu and other Inca ruins in the context of their landscape and the people who live there.

Known for it's trekking, or hiking, Peru's most famous trek is the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu that explores ancient ruins and ends at the Sun Gate entrance to Machu Picchu. But Peru also has high mountain treks with scenery reminiscent of the Himalaya Mountains, and incredible cultural journeys where you interact with local people who live much as their Inca ancestors once did.

To learn more about when and how to go to Peru and what to do there, see our Peru Travel Guide.

We sell trips from the best local tour operators in Peru. These trips are equal in quality to those sold by top international tour operators, but at much lower prices. In fact, many of these tour operators operate the trips for international tour operators but put on that company's t-shirt and hat and pretend to be them, allowing the international operator to double or triple the local price.

* We know Peru, and because none of the trips are branded as "ours" we can offer unbiased advice to help you get the trip you really want. We know Peru and we are here to help you choose the trip that fits you best. We offer lots of trips because we know that you are unique and don't fit into any one-size-fits-all trip, and if you want help we can guide you to the best trip for you.

* Sustainable Local Tours. We only sell trips operated by sustainable locally owned companies, and unlike buying from an international tour operator, most of the money you spend stays in the local economy to provide jobs, improve the lives of local people, and to protect the environment.
