My daughter and I used Alpaca Expeditions (amazing company) to hike the 4D/3N Lares Trek along with the short 2D/1N Inca Trail. Doing this gave us the best of both worlds! The Lares Trek was so beautiful. Hiking from valleys to snow covered peaks, through...More

The trail was excellent: great mountain scenery, glacial lakes, flora/fauna/friendly traditional Andean farming communities. Going up to 4700m...More

I really enjoyed this climb due to the scenery. Having climbed Kilimanjaro before I thought this was a more approachable climb.

Based on the previous posts I was really looking forward to the Lares Trek. My wife allowed me one night to camp and Sam Travel Peru (who were really good) planned a two day and one night itinerary where we would hike from Quishuarani-Cancani-Huacahuasi-Patacancha. It...More

My trek through the Andes from Cusco toward Machu Picchu was the most adventurous trip I've ever taken. The landscape changes every day as you climb up, down, over and through mountain passes. We saw waterfalls, rushing streams, dark blue lakes and a glacier. Choose...More
