The Lares Trek is an excellent alternative to the often busy Inca Trail. Taking you off the beaten track with visits to authentic Andean communities whilst being surrounded by stunning mountains, lakes, and valleys, this fabulous trek offers a real insight into the lives of the people of Cusco as it once was.

The route we offer starts in the village of Pumahuanca in the Sacred Valley and finishes in the hot springs of Lares, with a visit to the village of Cuncani along the way. On day 3 of the trek, you take a bus from Lares to Ollantaytambo and then carry on by train to Machu Picchu.
In the day 4 afternoon, we take the train to Ollantaytambo and from there we will take the bus to Cusco.

Please see the detailed itinerary for more information.
