Lares Trek to Machu Picchu: An especially loved trek that takes you to the villages of local Andean families to ex
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!
