Explore Northern Peru

Get off the tourist trail in Northern Peru, a destination that has it all – vast Amazonian lowlands, stunning Andean Mountains and a narrow strip of coastal plain with some fascinating ancient sites.

Trek in the Cordillera Blanca or Northern Highlands, experience the cloud forest and jungle, and discover the truly fascinating cultural heritage by living and working with local people on your project.

This is by far one of the most spectacular, and challenging, trips that we have to offer.

Explore

To find your feet and get ready for your main challenge, there are numerous treks in the foothills of the Cordillera Blanca, including walks to local ruins, glacial lakes and hot springs in spectacular valleys.

Challenge Yourself

If you’re up for a challenge then head to the Cordillera Blanca. Treks will reward you with some fantastic views, including snow-capped mountains towering over crystal blue lakes. You may reach passes of up to 5000m! If you fancy something less challenging, then the Peruvian city of Chachapoyas is a good base for treks through cloud forests of the Northern Highlands.

Contribute

Experience Peru’s customs and culture first-hand as you live and work with local communities. Projects in Northern Peru involve helping to construct or renovate community buildings, promoting environmental awareness or conservation in the Amazon basin.

Chill Out

Don’t miss the opportunity to relax on the beaches of Northern Peru, or simply explore the colourful markets or fascinating cultural sites, such as the pre-Inca ruins at Kuelap in Peru.
