LARES TREKS PERU

GO BEYOND THE INCA TRAIL

Lares Treks

A cultural flare: experience the thrill of hiking the Andes, and spend time in local villages learning more about this incredible culture. This trek immerses you in not only the beauty of the trail, but the people too! Once a “secret” compared to the more widely known Inca Trail, the Lares Trek is a favorite as a less traveled route to Machu Picchu.

Because you do not need a permit to hike this trail, it is especially easy to plan—and while all treks in the Andes are physically challenging, this hike moves a bit slower, making it a great fit for our youngest, oldest, and more casual hikers!

Why Choose Alpaca Expeditions for your Lares Trek?

When you're on the trail with us, you can expect top-quality camping equipment, nutritious meals on the trail prepared by professional chefs, and leading safety procedures on every trek. Beyond this, you can feel good about supporting a 100% Peruvian company whose involvement with local communities includes social projects and initiatives in porter welfare.
