The Peruvian landscape is a hiking utopia. The Andes Mountains run down the center of the country and offer up an assortment of beautiful places to explore. Routes like the Inca Trail lead past ancient ruins and combine outdoor excursion with cultural investigation. Hikes in the Amazon Basin provide travelers with the opportunity to wander through rainforests and spot wildlife. Avid hikers can sign up for multi-day treks, while less intense hikers can enjoy pleasant, half-day strolls.
