If you are ready for the challenge, Tucano Peru can provide the adventure to suit!
Peru, with the Andes Mountains running along its length, a long Pacific coastline, littered with ancient ruins and covering numerous micro-climates with distinct eco-systems, offers some of the best adventure activity opportunities in the World.
Tucano Peru is extremely well-versed in organising challenging and rewarding active trips, such as hiking, biking or rafting, which will test you physically at every step, but reward you with wondrous natural beauty, intriguing archaeological sites and an unsurpassed sense of achievement.
We have taken thousands of delighted clients hiking on the world-famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, as well as the equally-rewarding alternatives, the Lares and Salkantay treks. For those trekkers looking for a less well-trodden path, we can arrange incredible hikes to the little-visited ruins of Choquequirao, or in the stunning Huaraz region.
Some of these same routes can be done on horseback. And equine lovers will be keen to try riding Peru’s famous Paso horses, which are well-known for their comfortable gait.The Cusco and Huaraz regions are also a Mecca for mountain-bikers. A strenuous ride is rewarded with sensational mountain views and sites of archaeological and historical interest, such as the circular Inca agricultural terraces of Moray or the salt mines of Maras.
Rafters are equally spoilt for choice in Peru. There are a number of great day trips from Cusco on rivers carving their way through the Andean scenery, on their way to the Amazon River, with rapids up to Grade IV. And for longer, more demanding rafting trips, the Apurimac River is a world-renowned option.
