When to go Trekking and Climbing in Peru
The Peru Trekking, Hiking and climbing season is better with more settled weather. Generally speaking this is from May until September. 6000m and technical peaks can generally only be climbed from June to August.
We also organise treks and climbs of 5000m peaks & non technical peaks from October until April and special low season rates apply.
We will organise Peru treks or climbs for one person up to groups of 20 or more. If you are traveling alone, we can advertise your dates on our website JOIN A GROUP Page and co-ordinate and form a group with other people. Unless the group is a privately organised group of friends, our normal maximum group size is 6 to 8 people.
Travel To Huaraz:
Travel from Lima is by high class tourist bus (7.5 hours on a good paved highway) or there is a daily flight on a small 19 seat aircraft. You can also travel between Huaraz and Trujillo by tourist bus (night bus).
All of our Peru tours, trek & climb programs for the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash start and finish in Huaraz. Add extra days for international flights, travel between Lima and Huaraz and acclimatisation days in Huaraz.

Responsible Tourism & Environmental Care
Peruvian Andes Adventures recognises the need to care for our fragile environment and to operate responsible tourism in order to protect our history, culture and environment for future generations.
We have developed a responsible tourism policy which we are slowly introducing to our trekking crews and local communities. It takes time to change entrenched thinking and decades old practices and change cannot be forced. We have however made a start and are training our crews in sound environmental practices, speaking with local communities and in this way little by little hope to improve practices in the areas and in the communities that we work with.
See our Peru Treks Responsible Tourism page.
