Backpacking Guided Hikes are for people looking for a more challenging multi-day hiking experience. These hikes are in remote and often challenging areas where a high level of fitness is required by all.
These tours are rugged and the facilities can be basic at times: camp, stay in mountain huts or sleep under the stars.
The trips will however reward you with spectacular views and a real sense of achievement.
On these trips everyone lends a hand: whether it’s cooking, washing or pitching a tent together.
No multi-day hiking experience is needed but you need to be a good walker and able to carry a backpack.
We highly recommend that you arrive in Huaraz at least three days before the trek departs and spend time doing day hikes to higher altitude, this will help with acclimatization to the new altitude. We can help organise day hikes for you.

Pisco Base Camp and Lake 69 Trek – 2 Days
