Peru Hiking and Adventure Tours

Offering adventure tours in Peru was a natural progression for us; one of our Kiwi guides, Phil, had spent years in South America and saw the potential, for Active to craft unique adventure tours making the most of Peru's vast lakes, mountains and jungle. Around 2003 the ' Jaguar' was born and soon after, the 'Capybara' - and we've never looked back!.

Where else in the world can you trek for three days to arrive at a mystical Inca citadel perched on a mountain top? Or kayak the highest navigable lake in the world to a floating village made completely of reeds? It's this convergence of discovering an alluring ancient culture, meeting fascinating people and exploring the stunning natural landscapes that make our Peru hiking and adventure tours unforgettable.

"Excellent, the trip of a lifetime!" doesn't even cover it.

“This really was a trip of a lifetime and more! I've been dreaming of visiting Peru for over 13 years, and being able to save up enough money to finally make my dream come true was a lot of work. With that being said, I must say that every year of dreaming, every hour worked, and every penny spent was worth it!

We've always traveled independently, and were a bit nervous about booking and traveling on a group excursion. Even though Active came highly rated by a friend who had traveled with your group about 10 years ago, we were still nervous about what it would actually be like to be with the same people for two weeks, rather than on our own. I was so happy to find that all our fears were unfounded. The people we were paired with for travel were easy to get along with and our leader was excellent (more about him later).

Peru is an amazing country with so much to offer. Traveling independently would have been fine, but I have a hard time believing that we would have been immersed in the country's culture, history, and scenic beauty as thoroughly if we had not gone with Active. We loved everything we did on the trip, but what stood out the most as highlights were our days hiking the Lares trail and all the amazing food that we got to try (oh, and pisco sours too).

The most important reason we were able to learn as much about Peru as we did was because of our amazing leader, Elder. I believe Elder went above and beyond what would be expected of a group leader. He was so enthusiastic about showing us his love for and knowledge of Peru. I have no idea where all his energy comes from, but it was refreshing to experience and made for a memorable time. Not only did he always have the answers to our questions, he anticipated what we'd want to know by pointing out what to see, explaining more details about nature, history, culture, telling us what was best to order at each restaurant, or what it was like to grow up in Peru. Everything we did was well-timed and organized, and our movement from one activity to another or from place to place was seamless.

I would never hesitate to recommend this particular trip or your company. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I share details of our adventure with my friends and coworkers. Thank you, Active and Elder for making this a true dream come true!”
