Welcome to Action Peru Treks! Your Adventure is Waiting for you here!

WHAT’S IN A NAMEAction Peru Treks?

Action is a word we are all familiar with and probably use on a regular basis without too much thought! However, it is worth a look at the dictionary to understand what makes the word Action in our name special.

ACTION: Doing things that require physical movement and energy; something done so as to accomplish a purpose; involved in the activities of a group and organization.

These are the things that embody trekking pure and simple – getting out there and moving. Participating in nature and the astounding sites it provides. Being involved in a group or by yourself in learning about the ancient culture of Peru and the Andes mountains. Meeting others and getting down to the absolute basics as you have the opportunity to see how people really live in some of these ancient villages!

Ancascocha & Salkantay Trek 8D/7N

New Ancascocha Trail + Salkantay Trek

Glaciers, Inca Sites, High Altitude lakes, Original Inca Trail paths, Solitude, Coffee Plantation Tours…this trek has all of these things and more.

We spend a lot of time discussing the merits of the Ancascocha and Salkantay treks and which is better for specific individuals. They are both incredible and it was unfortunate that a group couldn’t do both. That has changed now! This brand new trek combines our signature Ancascocha Trek with the most popular alternative trek to the Inca Trail.

Of course on the final day of the trek you visit the magnificent city of Machu Picchu to cap it all off.

We hope you will join us for this unique trek.
