Trek Peru

Visit Peru, the ancient land of the Incas, with Gane and Marshall.

We organise extended treks to Machu Picchu via the standard Inca trail as well as the less trodden Lares Valley route. Gane and Marshall will also organise shorter 5 day treks to the ruins at Choquequirao.

Machu Picchu via the Lares Valley

Boasting spectacular scenery, this trek along the Lares Valley will offer you a real insight into how the Andean peoples live. The Quechua people dress in brightly coloured ponchos and live in thatched stone houses. Farmers herd llamas and alpacas, and guinea pigs often run loose inside the houses. Potato and maize are staple crops, and locals are also known for their intricate weaving, which dates back to the time of the Incas.

The region is also home to the Baños del Inca, probably the best hot springs in southern Peru.
Situated at an altitude of 2,667m, the springs offer spectacular views of snowy peaks and glaciers such as Mounts Veronica, Chicon and Pumahaunca. As you continue along your route, you will also take in the dazzling sight of glacial blue lakes.

You will eventually have some time to explore the ruins at Machu Picchu, the ‘lost City of the Incas’. These breathtaking pre-Columbian ruins are nestled high in the Andes between two peaks. The ruins were rediscovered in 1911 by Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham and are one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ancient sites in the world.
