Peru Hike, Bike & Raft (PHB)
Raise your heart rate as you hike, bike and paddle through Peru’s Andes Mountains and into the jungle below. If you’re an active adventurer looking for a challenge, then this is the trip for you. Some of the best rafting in Latin America will leave you gasping for breath, and by the time you’ve got it back, hiking the Inca Trail to the cloud forest citadel of Machu Picchu will take it away again. Downhill biking on a descent into the Manu Cloud Forest is an exhilarating highlight, and the exciting optional activities ensure that the thrills never end.
Highlights: Rafting on the whitewaters of the tough Apurimac River, climbing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, mountain biking into the natural splendour of Manu Cloud Forest, devouring seafood in Lima.
Comparable to the Himalayas and the Rockies in terms of snow-capped alpine beauty, Peru’s Cordillera Huayhuash is a mountain-climber’s dream come true. Located in one of the most remote sections of the Andes, the range asks a lot from those who trek it, but your CEO has all the expertise, equipment and encouragement you’ll need to get the most out of these majestic peaks. Great on its own, this trip gets even better when paired with a Machu Picchu trek or any other Peru-based adventure.
Highlights: Taking in the glacial alpine scenery along the Huayhuash Circuit, challenging yourself conquering the high-altitude mountain passes, sleeping in tents under the stars in the remote wilderness.
