Peru Adventure Tours

We have many itinerary ideas for Peru adventure tours shown on our website, and all our ideas can be customized to make your perfect adventure tour to Peru. Choose from a variety of different adventure hikes to Machu Picchu ranging from adventure to luxury. While there are treks in the Andes Mountains, to Machu Picchu, and Huayna Picchu, the most popular Peru adventure tours are hikes in the Sacred Valley. Enjoy the 4-day classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, as well as several other Inca Trail Treks in the area and in the Cordillera Blanca. Beyond hiking on our Peruvian Adventure Tours, there’s ATV tours of the Sacred Valley, zip-lining, white water rafting along the Urubamba and Apurimac Rivers, paragliding, and more. We highly recommend paragliding in Lima, Peru, the capital, where the cliffs face the Pacific Ocean and receive strong updrafts that make for great paragliding.

Peru Adventure Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about a Peru adventure trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.

What is Peru best known for?

Machu Picchu is by far the most famous tourist attraction in Peru. The adventurous can hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu camping along the way. There is a great deal more adventure options in the surrounding area too, such as rafting, horseback riding, and zip-lining.

Where is the best place in Peru for Adventure Tours?

If you are a keen trekker, there are lots of excellent trekking options in the Peruvian Andes. Some of the most famous treks are the Inca Trail, the Salkantay Trail, Lares Trail, and Choquequirao. These are all in the mountains around Cusco. Huaraz is another region of the Andes with great treks. If you are into day hikes more than treks, the Sacred Valley – partway between Cusco and Machu Picchu is perfect. The Sacred Valley also has a number of other adventure activities such as zip-lining, horseback riding, and mountain biking.

Can you go rafting in Peru?

Yes, you can. White water rafting trips are available from Cusco and the Sacred Valley. There are different levels available including trips suitable for beginners.
