Lares Valley Peru Trek - Tour Extension

4 Days / 3 Nights
From 790
* flights not included

Summary

The 4 Day Lares Valley Trek is an excellent option for an alternative Inca Trail. Less traveled and just as scenic, this Inca Trail begins at the Lares hot springs, covers terrain over 4000 meters in the Lares Valley, and ends at Ollantaytambo. Plus, it’s easy to add a tour of Machu Picchu to the end of your trek.

Note: This is a tour extension, combine this trek with one of our full package tours.
