Active Peru and Bolivia trekking Andean peaks to tropical rainforest

18 days from £2855pp

Private Journey


Andean Peru and Bolivia have some of the best hiking opportunities in Latin America, if not the world. This private trekking holiday combines two popular and spectacular trails.

The Salkantay Trail, an Inca path which ends close to Machu Picchu, is sometimes regarded as a less desirable alternative to the often congested Classic Inca Trail. But it can really rank alongside the better known trek for its dramatic scenery, and has the added attractions of passing remote farmsteads, fields rich with tropical crops, and what is probably the best first-time view of Machu Picchu currently accessible. 

The Choro Trail in Bolivia, leading from high altitude La Paz down into the semi-tropical pre-Amazon valleys, has the appeal of being mostly downhill. You can easily appreciate the influence of altitude on the landscape: from the skeletal rocky pass down to the tropical plantations of the Yungas area in the foothills separating the high Andes from the Amazon region.
