Family hiking trips in Peru
Many come to Peru to go trekking in the Andes, most famously to hike the Inca Trail. These mountain routes offer a stiff yet extremely rewarding walk and are suitable for teens and up. It’s a good idea to acclimatise to the air at high altitude before embarking, for instance in the historical town of Cuzco. On the Inca Trail, you’ll be accompanied by porters, meaning you’ll have less weight to carry and more opportunities to enjoy the stunning views. The Lares Trek is gentler in comparison, and great for the whole family.
