Note: The biking terrain we encounter on this trip is moderately rolling with some steeper sections. Our bike routes are mainly on dirt and a few paved roads, some more rocky and rough than others. Please note that you'll be on mountain bikes and the riding conditions can change with the weather—in dry years the terrain can be dusty, whereas rainy conditions lead to muddy trails.Our walking and hiking routes are a mix of village and archeological site walks and Inca stone jungle and rugged mountain trails.Activities take place at elevations between 8,000–12,000 feet, which can make the routes feel more challenging than the mileage may suggest, so we accommodated for this by bumping up the route rating on some days by one level. Additionally, some of the hiking routes involve substantial elevation loss which can also add to the perceived difficulty.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Hiking the Inca Trail

One of our hikes requires an Inca Trail permit that Backroads will obtain on your behalf (included in your trip price). Therefore, we recommend booking your trip at least 7-9 months prior to departure to have the best chance of securing your permit. Without it, you will miss this portion of the Trail but will still visit Machu Picchu with an alternate hike within the ruins. Also, due to national park regulations and difficulty securing permits, your Backroads leaders may not be able to accompany you along the hike requiring an Inca Trail permit. If they're unable to join you, rest assured you will always be well supported by our local Peruvian guide, who we've worked with for years, and a staff of porters.

Terrain & Trail Support

Our hikes through Peru's captivating rugged terrain climb rocky and sometimes uneven paths, many of which are remote and do not intersect with roads. Vehicles will get us to and from the trailheads, but the nature of these trails is such that we won't see our vans along the route. Ample trail support in the form of water, snacks and encouragement is provided by your Backroads leaders and local guides.

Hiking on Your Own

This trip has been designed to offer as many hiking options as possible. Since many of the trails are unmarked, we recommend that you hike with the company of a Backroads leader or one of our local support staff. On the few days when we're in national parks, regulations require you to hike in the company of one of our certified park guides.
