Product Description:
Andean adventure paradise
As mountain adventure destinations, the Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash in central Peru are unrivalled in South America. These ranges boast some of the most spectacular scenery in the Andes, and some of the most accessible high altitude trekking and cycling in the world. Perfect pyramidal peaks, gargantuan ice falls and turquoise alpine lakes are all easily reached from Huaraz, the region's capital and centre of tourist comforts.
Trekking – 20 hiking trails
Includes the classic treks: Huayhuash Circuit, Santa Cruz and Alpamayo Basecamp, as well as lesser known, wild walks in valleys which see few visitors. Ranging from easy day hikes to challenging routes of 10 days or more, all can be trekked independently or in guided groups.
Cycling – 30 days of paved and dirt road routes
Includes a loop of Peru’s highest mountain - the Huascar
án Circuit - as well as four other multi-day rides and five day-cycles from Huaraz. Covers all the information cyclists need to pedal past glaciers on 6000m peaks or fly down 2500m descents from high passes.
Mountain biking – off road routes
Includes two detailed downhill routes and information on organising guides to lead you through the labyrinth of exciting singletrack to be found in the area.

Practical information – planning your trip and getting to Peru
