Amazon Forest in Peru
The Peruvian Amazon Forest has recently been awarded the status of One of the Seven Natural Wonders in the World. Our tours in the Peruvian Amazon Forest offer excursions to the Manu National Park as well as the Tambopata and the Bahuaja-Sonene National Parks. These parks are situated in the Madre de Dios region, between the Madre de Dios and Tambopata rivers, in Southern Peru. In the three national parks temperatures are much lower than in Northern Peru which results in very few insects and mosquitos. The World Health Organization has declared the Peruvian Amazon Forest a malaria free area. On request, we can also offer excursions to the cities of Iquitos and the Pacaya Samiria Park.
Tours in the Manu National Park
Tours in the Manu National Park are breath-taking! Deep in the Amazon Forest, an area that according to scientists has the greatest biodiversity in the world, these tours last 3, 5 or 7 days and expeditions are 9 days-long. Apart from group tours, we also offer private excursions.
All our tours will allow you discover a very rich vegetation and totally unique bird watching. If you are interested in animal watching, we offer expeditions that go as far as the Manu River. These tours are the most complete offering for those who wish to discover the Manu National Park and exploit its full potential. All Manu tours can be reached by road with different stops along the way. In terms of comfort, Manu tours foresee staying in frugal but clean eco-lodges with mosquito nets that fully cover beds. This is the most adventurous experience far from built-up areas.
Tours to the Tambopata National Park
Situated near the city of Puerto Maldonado, the Tambopata National Park is accessible by plane and offers more favourable living conditions compared to the Manu National Park. Several airlines offer daily flights out of Cusco and Lima to Puerto Maldonado. For those who have little time available, the Tambopata Park Tour is the best option.
Our Tambopata National Park Tour offers excursions ranging from 2 to 5 days. The superb Macaw Clay Licks at dawn, the forest trails to discover extraordinary flora, the howling monkeys or a night excursion in search of caimans are part of the unique experience we offer with our tours to the Tambopata National Park in greater comfort compared to the Manu National Park tours. It is also possible to choose luxury options in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Forest.

Land of Lost Cities, ancient legends, archaeological sites all over the Andes, snow-capped mountains and glaciers above 6,000 meters (19,685 feet); Peru truly has everything it takes to be the land of trekking with unique and staggering trails! Trekking lovers cannot miss Peru: the combination of incredible trekking paths and the beauty of the lost Inca ruins add a special touch that makes them famous all over the world.
When it comes to trekking we Peru has three main areas: Cusco and the Sacred Valley where most of the Inca ruins are to be found, Arequipa with the deepest canyons in the world and Huaraz in northern Peru.
Cusco & the Sacred Valley – Trekking trails around Cusco & the Sacred Valley are among the most spectacular you can find in Peru. High peaks, volcanoes and archaeological ruins make them so well known.
Inca Trail – The most famous trek in Peru is certainly the Inca Trail. This is a legendary trek and please be aware that you need to book at least 4 months in advance to secure your permit (only 500 hundred per day are issued via agencies).
Salkantay Trek – Touching the highest point at Abra Salkantay (4.740 metres – 15.551 feet) near the imposing Salkantay glacier, the Salkantay trek is the best alternative to the Inca Trail that leads to Machu Picchu. In 2007 the Salkantay Trek was described as the Cool Way to Machu Picchu by the National Geographic and does not require a permit .
Lares Trek – This is a cultural trek which does not follow a specific path but a number of different routes leading to Ollantaytambo, where you will catch a train to Aguas Calientes. The Lares Trek passes near various Andean villages, archaeological Inca ruins, hot springs, lakes, rivers but also high mountain over 4,000 meters (13,123 feet) high.
Ausangate Trek – The Ausangate glacier was venerated by the Incas and solemn Quechua rituals where held here. This is a trail for professional trekkers or for very fit people as it will last 6 to 9 days.

Arequipa & the Colca Canyon – Near the city of Arequipa there are the deepest canyons in the world: the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons. The Colca Canyon Trek is a great alternative to the trails around Cusco during the rainy season and offers trekkers exceptional routes amongst rural villages and hot springs during 3 or 4 days. We also offer horse-riding excursions in the Colca Valley and up the Colca Canyon over several days. We suggest you do the Colca Trek privately.
Huaraz – The most challenging treks in Peru depart from the city of Huaraz: the Cordillera Blanca and the Cordillera Huayhuash are both stunning and appealing to expert mountaineers. The highest peak in the region is Huascarán with 6,768 meters (22,204 feet). The most popular trek in the region is the 4 days trek from Llanganuco to Santa Cruz.
