Active Peru

Punta Cuyoc & Huayhuash Trek, North Peru – Trek past sapphire lagunas and undulating valleys ringed by towering snow dusted peaks. Work your way up from the Huanacpatay Valley to the glacial passes at 5,000 m above sea level.

Sand-Boarding, Huacachina, Ica – An oasis town, people come here to sandboard over some of the world’s largest sand dunes or ride over them in a dune buggy. Post adventure time, it has plenty of affordable options to rest and relax.

Adventure Activities, Cusco – It’s not just historic but Cusco is also the base for extreme adventure. Go white water rafting on the Urubamba river. Take a Quad bike tour to lesser known ruins and secluded Andean passes and villages. Or head to Pisac Gorge for rappelling, rock climbing and canyoning.

Surfing in Mancora – Head North to see the world's longest left-handed wave at Chicama and the world's largest left-handed point-break at Mancora. These two spots are literally the Mecca for international surfers and are slowly attracting tourists as well. Whether you get on a board or not, it’s worth going for the action and the seafood.
