Don’t have the time for a long trek while visiting Huaraz? No Problem! Take a look at our two shorter versions of Huaraz’s most iconic treks!
Huaraz is an incredible destination for trekking with its snow-capped
mountains, Andean flora and fauna, and amazing lakes. Its two best known
treks – the 12 – day Cordillera Huayhuash trek and the 13 – day Alpamayo
Circuit – are some of the best ways to experience the epic scenery to include its
most important peaks like Huascarán, Alpamayo, Taulliraju, Huando. As not
every traveler has nearly two weeks to devote to a trek, we offer shorter versions that any traveler can fit into their itinerary.
*If you would like to try both treks, we also have a complete version
that takes 12 days.
With new access roads into what is considered the most spectacular mountain scenery of Peru, we have developed this trek into the heart of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range. It offers a new opportunity for those who don’t have the time to do the longer, classic traditional route. A prerequisite however is to be well acclimatized since we gain altitude quickly!
This trek is called the Santa Cruz Loop and offers a hike amidst towering peaks–Huascaran, Alpamayo, Taulliraju, Huandoy, and Chacrerau–in the glacial canyons of Peru’s first mountain national park and biosphere reserve.
There is an excellent transportation service between Lima and Huaraz, with multiple departures daily. Certain times of the year there are also flights in small planes from Lima to Huaraz. Check with us for schedules.
