From scaling Machu Picchu, to hiking the Colca Canyon, and exploring the deserts of Paracas, there is something in Peru for everyone. The tourist/backpacker trail is very established here with a well-traveled route connecting Lima to Arequipa and then Cusco. We’ve put together city and trekking guides to share our experiences and any additional nuggets of wisdom we picked up along the way!
